Centrafuse Localizer is a utility designed to allow you to use standard desktop
navigation programs on your GPS-equipped Windows 8 tablet.
Most (if not all) Windows 8 tablets that contain an onboard GPS/GNSS chipset DO NOT expose the sensor as a standard com port. So navigation programs have nothing to connect to.
Localizer attaches DIRECTLY to the GPS/GNSS driver and does two things:
1. It extracts (or creates, if necessary) standard NMEA 0183
strings from the GPS/GNSS sensor.
2. It allows your to create a virtual com port that can be used by ANY standard desktop
1. A tablet running a full version of Windows 8 (not RT).
2. A tablet that has a built-in GPS/GNSS sensor. You can check device manager and it should show up under sensors.
That's it. Centrafuse Localizer is designed to address this specific problem, and that's all it does. It minimizes to your task bar, is fully touchscreen-enabled, supports English
and 5 other languages, Imperial or metric output and you get automatic updates whenever they are available.
