I have the emulator working from, say virtual port 2 to virtual port 3 
both ways on the laptop.. If I plug the GPS into the one physical serial 
port on the laptop, I don't get how to share that with the way I 
understand to set the emulator up with ID #1 "pair" 2 and 3 . I must be 
missing something, but at least I can talk back and forth on the virtual 
pair 2 & 3.

Is there more documentation somewhere?
