Developing GPS enabled WP7 apps?

If you’re developing a GPS enabled app for Windows Phone 7 you will surely appreciate the Windows GPS Emulator application.

The Windows Phone GPS Emulator consists of a small WPF application and a WP7 DLL and allows you to create complex paths that you can play back just as if you were driving or walking. With it you can debug your application on the emulator or a real device without leaving the comfort of your home or office.


Once you’ve completed your testing and debugging, you only need to change a single line of code to switch the device back to real GPS.

The download includes:

  • The Windows GPS Emulator application
  • The Windows Phone GPS Emulator Client DLL
  • A simple Windows Phone Test client
  • An end-to-end Windows Phone App using Bings maps (a more complex sample)

You can download it from APP HUB

Oh how I wish I had a WP7 phone…
