In my pet project Run Smart With Me I decided to use GPS.NET 3.0 to handle the GPS functionality. GPS.NET is an open source project and can be found on CodePlex. My pet project will use the built in GPS device on mobile devices to track speed and distance when working out (running, cycling, skating).
In this post I will explain how I used the GPS.NET in my project.
I copied the following introduction to GPS.NET from CodePlex:
GPS.NET is a formerly commercial .NET component maintained by GeoFrameworks, LLC from 2004 to 2009. In 2009, Jon Person decided to release the full source code of GPS.NET to the public domain for the benefit of the open source development community. This version (3.0) is the latest release which had a short lifespan before being released here on CodePlex. The purpose of this framework is to deliver intuitive real-time GPS functionality with maximum
lazinessefficiency for all possible computers, mobile devices and NMEA-compliant GPS devices.
