Windows 10: XGPS150A Work with Windows 10? Solved

    XGPS150A Work with Windows 10?


    I am trying out my Dual XGPS150A GPS receiver that I used on my iPad on my local PC to see how it works. It appears to pair okay and it adds an incoming and outgoing port but no software seems to want to connect to it. Have tried Maps which should work with it but no luck. Tried a couple of GPS apps and no go either.
    I am trying it on my PC before my new Surface Pro 4 arrives.

    Anyone know if this combo should work or not?

    Turns out it requires driver software between the comm port and the location data that acts as a location sensor. GPSComplete does this but requires the window to stay open. Would rather just a tray icon. Anyone know of any other software like GPSDirect?
