Hello,
Is there a way to plug two GPS to Global Mapper ? I need to track one ship and one ROV at the same time. Thanks

    While the latest Global Mapper release does have support for tracking multiple GPS device through a special GPS transceiver (such as those made by RaveonTech), there is not any way to physically plug multiple devices into Global Mapper to allow them to be track simultaneously.

    Thanks,

    Many thanks for your fast reply,
    I don't speek well english, that's why I'm not sure to have a good anderstanding of your meen.
    The raveon tech transceiver will "mix" the two GPS signal and send it alternativly to Global Mapper v10 with a special tag ?

    Thanks

    That is correct, the Raveon Tech devices communicate with the GPS devices (either by radio or direct connection I think), then generate a NMEA GPS stream with multiple device position information using a special $PRAVE sentence that Global Mapper knows how to interpret.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,
