    USB Port sharing

    I have a USB GPS Transmitter hooked up to the CarPC. I would like to concurrently run netstumbler (used the GPS for location) and another GPS program, such as Routis2004. However the PC will not allow both programs to share the data streaming in over the USB com port.

    Is there a piece of software available that will allow the GPS data to be used by more than one program...

    Thanks!!!

    If your GPS creates a 'virtual com port' (most do) - see here Virtual COM Port Splitter
