Share GPS data between apps with GPS Splitter Software

As you view the GPS information on your app, you may need to share it with multiple apps at once. To achieve this, you can use a Serial Port Splitter to easily share the GPS data. The GPS splitter software is the best tool to help a single GPS device communicate with multiple applications simultaneously. If you want a serial GPS device to be able to communicate with multiple applications at the same time, your best bet is to use GPS splitter software.

GPS Splitter Challenge

A problem that is often faced when working with GPS data is making the information generated by the GPS receiver available to multiple applications simultaneously. If you need to share the data from GPS equipment connected to your PC’s serial port, the GPS signal splitter from Electronic Team offers a simple and efficient solution.

Virtual Serial Port Driver PRO provides a software application that serves as a GPS antenna splitter enabling data transmission to be shared by several different applications. The GPS splitter works by replicating the data flowing through a physical serial port and making it available by establishing multiple virtual COM interfaces. This gives each application the same access to the GPS data as if it was connected to the physical port.

Many situations that require GPS splitters can use Virtual Serial Port Driver PRO to create unlimited copies of a GPS port. This allows multiple applications to use the data in real-time as it is received from a physical GPD interface. You can also reverse the process with this GPS splitter software and consolidate serial data from multiple sources into a single data stream. The software also enables the creation of bundles of virtual serial ports and reroutes data between various serial interfaces.

Here is what GPS Splitter can do for you

Split one hardware port into multiple virtual ports

Usually, a GPS tracking device can only transmit data to one device or application at a time. You need to keep the serial port available for the application that is to receive the data and ensure that no other app is connected to the interface. This limitation is eliminated when using a GPS serial data splitter. The GPS data splitter software makes it possible to share the GPS transmission between multiple serial applications.


All connected applications receive the GPS data as it is sent from the device.

Take control over GPS device ports

Use of a GPS signal splitter allows you to gain more control over your system’s COM ports. The software allows you to create, delete, and disable the ports at any time.


Here’s an example of a GPS splitter in use. You have a GPS device and a single serial port as well as two applications that you would like to use simultaneously with the GPS data.

Simply connect the device to the serial port and use the software to create two virtual ports. Now both applications can communicate with the device at the same time.

Redirect data from one port to another

GPS Splitter lets two devices interact with each other by redirecting data from one serial port to another one. When using GPS apps you often need to configure your COM2 port in a specific way. That can be done using GPS Splitter.


The software features many flexible settings which enable you to modify the software to operate based on your particular requirements.

Create bundles of GPS receiver ports

GPS Splitter enables you to use your virtual ports to create complex port bundles. You can create several data flows from a single virtual port and send them to other ports or consolidate multiple data flows into one.


This feature can be useful when working with a GPS simulation application with two other programs. Data transmitted out through a virtual port can be split and read by the two programs at the OUT end of the bundle. This type of data traffic flow works in both directions.

To split PTV Navigator data between two applications, GIPA uses Serial Splitter. The Electronic Team solution enables a GPS signal from the navigator software to be available in multiple applications at the same time.

GPS Splitter Core Benefits

✅ A single control point for all system serial ports

This GPS splitter solution allows you to manage all of your serial ports from within the same application. You can create, delete, and disable COM interfaces and optimize connections with the GPS port at your convenience. Both physical and virtual serial ports are supported by Virtual Serial Port Driver Pro.

create, delete, and disable COM interfaces

✅ Create bundles of GPS ports

This flexible software solution lets you create and manage complex bundles of serial ports. With this feature, you can establish communication between any number of physical or virtual serial interfaces and enable GPS signals to be transmitted in either direction.

✅ Exchange data between selected COM ports

Electronic Team’s GPS port splitter solution provides fine-grained control over data exchanged between GPS devices. The tool’s settings enable you to redirect data transmission between specific serial ports.

OS supported:
Like the standard version of Virtual Serial Port Driver, the Pro edition runs on Windows (32-bit and 64-bit): 7/8/8.1/10, Windows Server 2012/2016/2019
