We have had more than one request to access GPS data and inevitably accelerometer data. Compass too I suppose. Is this possible with 32bit windows API?

The new API seems daunting and the old 32bit API is deprecated even before we have working examples. I know that I can purchase GPS and accelerometer dongles that work via serial messaging. But these folks are wanting to access "on board" devices.

I wouldn't worry too much that an API is "deprecated" because that rarely means it stops working. I am likely to be using many such APIs in my various applications without problems.

Unfortunately none of my Windows devices (not even this XPS-11 laptop) incorporates a GPS receiver so I'm not in a position to experiment.
