Hi,

I have a GPS mouse and wondered if is it possible to get the gps data simultaneously, even when in use by a gps app like TomTom??

From my experience I've been able to open my virtual com port to my external bluetooth GPS device with two apps simultaneously, but both apps where having communication problems.

The best solution is to buy a port splitter software which installs virtual com ports and shares the gps (or other) com port.

Look for a program called GPSGate (http://franson.com/gpsgate).

It does exactly what dzt descibes, allows multiple apps to use the same GPS device simultaneously via virtual ports. It works great!

Hello,

In my experience only one program can use a BTport (or irdaport) at the same time.
And when you write a program, i you want launched an other program you must before write serial.openport=false if you don't want conflict.

Yes, there is. "Port splitter" works fine. I haven`t testet it using 2 programs at once, but it should work.
