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.

  1. Click the GPS drop-down menu and click GPS Connection Setup on the GPS toolbar.
  2. Click the Simulate GPS connection option.
  3. 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 Browse.

    You can use any point or line feature class, except a coverage.

  4. Type the interval in the Interval text box.

    The time interval is always in seconds.

  5. Click OK.
