More and more Windows Mobile powered devices ship with integrated global positioning system (GPS) hardware. Since Windows Mobile devices are typically used on the road, it makes a lot of sense to add location awareness to your applications. In this MSDN webcast, Maarten Struys shows you how you can make use of the GPS Intermediate Driver to access GPS information from inside managed applications. Learn how to use the FakeGPS utility to test location-enabled applications without needing access to a physical GPS device. Of course, in this session, you also see a location-aware application on a device using real GPS data.
