I am trying to get my current location using a Garmin GPS 18 X USD device using the code from the samples provided with ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF. But the sample using the SerialPortGpsCoordinateWatcher. I do not have a serial port on my laptop and using the USB to Serial adaptor would not work in our situation.

How do I read the values output by the GPS with the USB adaptor using ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF.

Your help is appreciated.

Thank you,
