Thank you for trying out ultimote! Sorry to hear that you are having problems but we will get it fixed.
Please ensure the connection was ok first by touching the screen, you should see circles appear on the simulator reflecting the touch.
I've tried this one: http://developer.anscamobile.com/content/gps but have no success.
So you have tried it on the simulator with ultimote or on the device? You should also compile and load it onto the device just to make sure GPS works on there as well.
But when I run my app, it doesn't see a location from the iPhone and says "Simulator doesn't support location events".
The "simulator does not support location events" is not the problem. Corona will not block location events from being sent even if it detects we are on the simulator. However, one thing we noticed to be a problem was if you do not move the device around a good bit you may not get any location events. This is a power saving feature but it may get in the way of debugging. However we have some possible solutions for you that will make it much easier than using the device itself to debug location events.
1) GPS Macro
You do not have to be connected to the computer to use the event recorder on the device. Make sure you have location enabled, press event recorder on the device, give it a name, press the record button, and go for a drive/walk. When you come back you can load the macro on your computer and play back the macro as many times as you want. It will trick the simulator into thinking you are driving. We have a premade GPS macro that you can use for this purpose. Just go to the macro demo folder and run the GPS project to see what it can do.
2) Google Earth Path
Say for instance your client lives far away from you and you cannot possibly travel there simulate GPS events in that location. Instead you can hand draw a path in google earth or even use driving directions, export the coordinates, and play them back in the Corona simulator using Ultimote. Please refer to the documentation for more information on how that is done.
We suggest you take one of the two solutions posted above for debugging location events. Practically because it is hard to simulate location events if you are sitting in a chair :).
