A good serial port emulator can be obtained here:-


Install the emulator software and it will give you the necessary virtual 
COM ports.

In the UI-View32 Setup menu select GPS setup and enable the GPS Output 
to send the GPS data to one of the virtual COM ports. It will then be 
available for the other program. See the UI-View32 Help for more 
detailed information.
