u-blox Updates Drivers Supporting GPS Location-Aware Applications on Windows 7

u-blox, a leading provider of embedded GPS receiver semiconductors and solutions, announced its support of Microsoft’s initiative to make development of location-aware applications on Windows 7 hassle-free.
The Sensor and Location Platform gives developers a standardized API and device driver interface (DDI) to work with sensors and sensor data. The u-blox USB sensor driver connects all u-blox GPS receivers to the Sensor and Location API structure of Windows 7. The driver parses and converts GPS messages into the standard sensor properties, which can be accessed by the Windows 7 Location and Sensor APIs.  (Thanks Jim)
