    We bought an Surface Pro LTE Advanced (4G+) Model 1807, because that is (as far as I know) the only model with built in GPS.
    But how can I get this GPS working with software that expects normal NMEA codes?

    Perhaps there is some software that you can use. But as far as I know it doesn't work like an external GPS receiver works

    Most likely that's the only way it'll work for Johan. Pity though, he didn't had to pay the extra amount to get the LTE/GPS version of the Surface Pro!

    I hope stuff like Waze gets some way of support on Windows 10 soon! Albeit through the Your Phone app.
