Windows 7 as a GPS Device



A Hidden feature in 7
We can locate anyone all over the world if we have GPS device. But is it possible for everyone to afford for GPS devices which are so costly??? Having a separate device for GPS when you can just be using your laptop is a bit expensive for one.

Yes, we can use our lappies as a gps device to locate one if we have windows 7 installed in our pc, without using any costly gps device........

It can be achieved just bu using a software and net connectivity. A software based GPS  dubbed "Geosense for Windows", has been developed and released for use in Windows 7. The software installs a Windows 7 Sensor into the operating system that allows third party applications to become location aware. The software uses the Sensors platform introduced in Windows 7. Geosense is a Windows Sensor that provides positioning information. The sensor utilises the Google Location Services for WiFi and IP triangulation to provide reasonably accurate location data.
How does it work?
The application is packaged in an installer for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7 versions. The installer will create a Windows 7 Sensor named "Geosense" that will interact with Google's location services to pinpoint your location. It works best with a Wi-Fi enabled PC or laptop but will work over any IP connection. Windows 7 will notify you each time your location is accessed by a third party application.


Why do I need it? What does it work with?
At this moment in time the Windows Sensor platform is lacking to say the least. Very few developers have built support for the Sensor platform into their products. Geosense claims that Windows 7's weather gadget and a specially designed Google Maps client will all utilize the Sensor. Geosense is available free for both Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit edition.
So Try it, Achieve it!!!!!!!
