I am starting an application for Windows CE in C#. One of the things it must do is interface with a GPS device that is connected to the PDA. I have no idea how to do this or even what to google for. Is my code going to be dependent on the driver of the GPS device? (i.e. am I going to be able to do much if I don't know what specific GPS device will be used yet?) Thanks!

Most GPS devices I believe use RS232 to communicate (serial). I am currently using a Pocket PC for an instrumentation project and have found the SerialTools library for .NET CF from franson.com to be pretty good and reasonable priced (if you're a student email him and you'll get a discount, 20% if I remember). Also check out SerialIO for some useful info.

Cheers
