In a win form I am getting location(latitude and longitude) by serial port and want to show this location in map but in offline mode. What is the best way to do this?

I have a device which is installed in vehicle and It sent some data to receiver at xxxK bytes/second out the serial port. And in this data I have lots of information including Latitude and Longitude. I want show that vehicle in map(google map, bing map...).

    Google Earth Pro allows you to import and track your location in real time via a connected GPS device [link]. If you need a custom solution Google Maps API probably has this capability. – landocalrissian Nov 17 '16 at 13:18
