It is an application to use a GPS with several programs on a laptop etc. Has nothing to do with formats as far as conversion on your behalf. It searches for the GPS attached and then asks what programs will be using the gate. the link below explains clearly what it does and how it does it. What version of GPS Gate depends upon what device you have, such as a PC/Laptop, a PPC/PDA or smart phone.

If I am not mistaken, this works on Garmin Que but not on Garmin Mobile XT

Maybe GPSBabel or GPSutility is more up to the task of 'translating'?

You could be right, I havent had time in the last couple of days to follow it up (or now, this is a very quick reply). I am using it to get Garmin Que to work on my iPaq. My understanding is that it converted nmea to Garmin and fed it out to a serial port, not application specific. Its a free download. Give it a go. I believe you may also need to use GPS Gate in conjunction, though I didnt need to as my version of Mobile 5 has this capabilty built in.

Just found a forum and the discussion suggests that Garmin Mobile XT will not work with GPSproxy as you suggest.
