    Windows Android emulator On Win 10 running Nextgen

    I'm pretty late to the Android party so this could easily be old news to you guys.

    I have been having a play with AMIDuOS. I was amazed at how well Nextgen ran on this, 100 times more slick than a WinCe emulator running primo, Fully functional it would appear, though I haven't tested GPS connectivity.

    AMIDuOS has an option to connect GPS hardware Via a com port, so i guess that a USB GPS module that creates a virtual com port should do the trick.

    (My interest in this emulator is for doing a little tweaking)


    Here's 2 screen shots with 2 different dpi settings.

    Win 10 laptop,
    NextGen BasarSoft v9.18.27.627562 -(many thanks to djeman, catymag & others)

    I have managed to test GPS connection using the share GPS app.

    Connecting from my phone to my laptop via bluetooth.

    Though not perfect, it did work. Probably requires a bit of tweaking.

    The navigation map screen briefly "blanked" every 15 or so seconds

    see images below

    It turns out that the problem I mentioned in the above post wasn't the screen going blank but the ocean.

    for some reason the GPS management in AMIdos intermittently drops the " - " from the longitude coordinate this has the effect of changing it from West to East of the prime meridian.

    This problem seems to disappear by just using the Location service -

    turn off GPS hardware support and enable "Location" in AMIdos
    activate " location " in Windows 10 settings.


    At the moment i don't know whether this method of location is good enough for Nextgen when actually driving a route.

    ( now using GPS over BT app - free)

    image - matched dpi settings - amiduos / nextgen
