Dear Experts,

Hi there everyone.

i'm currently working on a project related to GPS tracking..

I have a Garmin GPS 18 USB....

I was wondering that if anyone can provide me with a code to read (Latitude and Longitude) through a com port and write it to a text file.
Note : that i'm using the GPS Gate software to give NMEA format output through a virtual com port

If possible if there is a code in JAVA because we might integrate this code to our current JAVA program


Best Regards
