Training Radios - GPS Module

To all training schools with DSC VHF Simulators.

I am in the final stages of building a prototype sender unit, which will send either your chosen Lat and Long and Time to a VHF via NMEA, or will sit and happily send constantly updating positions out.

The unit will come in two forms - one that plugs in to the USB socket on a computer, and allows user input positions, and a standalone unit that just sends constantly updating positions.

These boxes are designed to simulate GPS sets for your training courses, and don't actually require the student to "use" a GPS, it just shows an updating position on the VHF screen. They will come with easy connectors for the VHF sets, and we are looking at supporting up to 4 radios at a time, and up to 12 radios at a time.

My question is this - I am obviously going to use the one I've built, but how many other schools would be interest in this bit of kit?
