Share GPS Windows USB Automation

Share GPS allows you to use you mobile as an external GPS for you laptop.  For those laptops without Bluetooth, using your android device in developer mode allows Share GPS to work over USB.

Using tools such as com0com and the Android Debug Bridge (adb), the user can then setup a virtual serial port that Google Earth can read from for real-time position information on the laptop. So what if you could automate this, so that when you plug USB from the phone to the laptop, the virtual serial port is setup and connected automatically. Well, using Windows Task Scheduler and Event triggers, you can! See this guide for the setup: Automate Windows USB Connections
