    Programming for XM and GPS without hardware?

    Anyone know if there is any software for fooling your software into thinking you have XM or GPS hardware install so you can write programs for it? I'm at that stage in my software and programming in the SUV doesn't sound like fun.

    I'm sure there has to be something out there.. I just don't know what to look for or where to find it..

    Thanks for the help.

    I think the best you can do with GPS, is to record the data when you go out on a drive, and then play it back through a virtual serial port on your home PC. I think someone here (ukchris if my memory serves me correctly) has written a basic application that will do this.

    As for XM, i have a feeling the only way will be to have the hardware hooked up.
