    Default How to get mobile GPS on laptop?

    Hi friends, I have mobile which has built in GPS function, and i have also Google Maps installed on the phone. I can get proper GPS function on it. Now if i want to use same function on laptop, is it possible? ( Connecting mobile through USB, just like we can use our mobile as modem on laptop)

    I was infact referring to the same question.
    For any GPS device to communicate with your laptop it needs a software.

    I have a sony phone, and it has got GPS facility. I connect my phone to my laptop and use the "Sony Ericsson PC Companion" to do so.
    Once the GPS application is opened through this software, installed in my laptop, I get the screen (the maps, and route directions) in my laptop. All I have to make sure is that my phone gets a clear view of the sky. Keep the phone on the windsheild, and this will do.

    So, thats it.
    It depends on what phone you are using, and whether it supports this application.

    Yup, is it possible. You just connect your mobile with the laptop.

    Does your phone support GPS in the first place? If Yes, may be try updating the software which it uses to communicate with the laptop.
