Insert position info to PlayBook

I'm looking for a possibility to insert position infos delivered from my flight simulator via WLAN into the PlayBook.

I like to write an application gathering this informations from WLAN and insert them in a way that other applications reading the GPS position would see my inserted positions.

The motivation is to use a PlayBook map app to track and show the actual position of the airplane in real time.

 

I appreciate any hint

MfG

Re: Insert position info to PlayBook

Hi,

 

I don't know of any way to spoof location events. (Which is probably a good thing) (Ok - I know one - but it didn't end well ) 

 

What level access to you have to the mapping application? If it's your own mapping application you could have it retrieve coords and recenter the map.

 

Thanks.

Re: Insert position info to PlayBook

Thanks for your reply.

 

For the map display I would like to use an app like Magellan Compass or Bing Maps or Nogago Maps or ...

So I don't have any access to the mapping application.

 

May it be possible to fake the mapping app by redirect their GPS access via a library to my position data?

Re: Insert position info to PlayBook

It looks like the Android App "X-Plane to GPS" does what I would like to have.

Does anybody know, if this App is working on the PlayBook?

 

Thanks for any reply.
