Create as many virtual COM port outputs as you need in GpsGate. Each should show running correctly.

Change GPS input settings in each application to connect to one of the (virtual) COM ports - separate port for each app but obviously not COM 5 which is in use feeding GpsGate.

Note some old apps will only accept COM ports in the range 1..9.
