A server for NMEA sentences from Windows location sensors.
Location Bridge streams NMEA sentences from location data obtained from the location sensors available on Windows 7 and 8.x. With this software you can access location data from integrated GPS sensors on laptops or from sensor drivers that don't provide NMEA output.
It's primarily designed for use with RTLSDR Scanner but should work with other software that can connect to a NMEA server.
- Windows 7 or 8.x
- GPS device compatible with the Windows Location Sensor API
Download the installer from GitHub.
The source code is also available on GitHub.
Once the program is running press 'Start' to begin GPS monitoring, clients can then connect to the server on
When your GPS device acquires a lock the 'GPS Data' light will flash green and NMEA data will be sent to any connected clients.
The light never flashes.
Press Start and begin typing 'Location and Other Sensors', open it and enable your GPS device.
Press Start and begin typing 'Location Settings', open it and enable 'Turn on the Windows Location Platform'.
Use a telnet client to connect to
localhost:10110. You should see NMEA sentences when your location is acquired.
To access the server from a remote machine select 'Edit->Preferences...' and un-check 'Local host only'. You will still need to enable access on TCP port 10110 in your firewall.
