Hi, I never used a virtualization software and I was wondering if Boxes could help to maintain updated my GPS devices through a virtualization of Windows 10 and a USB connection. Thanks a lot for any advice

Well, not sure if the USB will work on Boxes use some usb devices with virt-manager and work.

Instead of Boxes I recommend trying virt-manager, which has a much more understandable interface. Both use Qemu/libvirt as their back end.
