Is it possible to look at a GPS on a computer.

QuestionBot
If I had a GPS in my car, could I use a computer to look at where said GPS is? We are assuming that the GPS is transmitting a signal to the computer. However, would the microwave signals the GPS uses to communicate with satellites work with computers? Basically, can I be looking at my computer screen and seeing the location of a device with a GPS on my screen, whether it be 20 feet away or 20 miles? Thanks in advance for the answer.

    Many businesses & government agencies install GPS tracking devices on their vehicles & equipment for tracking purposes. It can be useful for things such as clearing snow....you can determine which roads have already been cleared & how long before the plow reaches blocked roads.....things like that.

    Whenever GPS for PC is concerned, the captioned are more viable. Otherwise you'll have to search for vehicle GPS hardware with a computer interface.

    The kind of tracking system you're looking for is actually a combination GPS receiver with a data link to a cell phone link and the software for you to interpret and display the location data on an overlay of a map. They are available but are expensive.

    I am working with TechRepublic to chase down some technical issues with filters on this site, and this thread was chosen by the support staff at random to do the tests.

    Once the issue is resolved, this post will be deleted.
