GPS Simulator – softpedia review

Whether you want to create a map or you are interested in developing a GPS simulation application, chances are that you are shopping around for a device that can help you gather the necessary data. While it may seem like the sensitive thing to do, sometimes using an app for this purpose can prove to be more practical for several reasons.

As its name suggests, GPS Simulator is a utility that enables you to generate GPS data that you can employ for testing and development and without having to worry about location restrictions.

Intuitive and well-organized interface

The program comes with a user-friendly interface that is very unlikely to give you any troubles. The main window consists of three panels, one that displays the map, another where you can enter the coordinates and extra information and a third pane that enables you to view the routing data.

It is necessary to mention that you can choose between multiple maps, depending on the type of project you are working on. Google Maps, Google Terrain, Bing Satellite and OpenStreetMap are some of the options you have at your disposal.

Allows you to get routing data quick and painless

The main advantage of the application stems from the fact that you do not require a GPS device in order to gather the data. Therefore, you do not have to invest in equipment that you are only going to use for this purpose and save time, especially if you are not familiar with how to connect the gadget to your computer.

Therefore, you can simply input the desired location and the program does the routing automatically and at the speed you specified. The tool allows you to select a general area by zooming in and clicking on the exact spot on the map. Alternative, you can enter the coordinates and additional data manually, if this is more convenient.

A proficient tool for obtaining GPS NMEA format(GPS Simulation / NMEA Tester)

If you are working on an application that requires you use real routing data and does not come with location restrictions, then GPS Simulator can come in handy.
