    Question Accessing GPS device from qt desktop(windows) App

    Hi...I want develop a qt desktop application which uses the external gps device attached to my desktop(windows xp). My question is can i access the device from a desktop app( I wanted to use qtmobility apis). How qt knows what type of gps it is?or on which ports they are connected.? Will qt handle all these issues sothat i can directly use the apis irrespective of device type ,vendor and type of interface to my desktop.

    Re: Accessing GPS device from qt desktop(windows) App

    To use GPS from windows you need to use QNmeaPositionInfoSource - which gets passed a QIODevice (something like a file or a socket) which provides NMEA data. The client developer is reponsible for finding the file (if it exists) and configuring a QNmeaPositionInfoSource to use the file.
