CityGuide DMS - Documentation - GPS

 
The additional program GpsCom enables you to read a GPS receiver which is connected to your PC or Notebook via the Com port. As an option, you can then record the data in a local file.


 
Apart from this, GpsCom can relay this information in real-time to an active
CityGuide DMS which is able to use it to plot the position of the GPS receiver on the map.

This depends on whether or not the publisher of the specific version of CityGuide has included the tool e.g. on CDROM or DVD.
