Setting up the simulation
You can use an existing dataset in place of a connection to a GPS device. A simulated connection is useful if you're giving a demonstration or are working with previously collected data. The shapefile or feature class must have point or line features; you can't use point or line coverages for the simulation.
- Click the GPS drop-down menu and click GPS Connection Setup on the GPS toolbar.
- Click the Simulate GPS connection option.
Click the Layer drop-down arrow and click the layer you want. To use a dataset that is not in the ArcMap table of contents, click the browse button .
You can use any point or line feature class, except a coverage.
Type the interval in the Interval text box.
The time interval is always in seconds.
- Click OK.
