Adding a GPS sensor in Gazebo 9

I want to add a GPS sensor to my robot model within Gazebo. I saw to use the ROS hector_gazebo_plugins but I cannot seem to get that to work with Gazebo 9. When I try to install I get this message that I assume means that no hector plug-ins are available for use with Gazebo 9:

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
     ros-kinetic-hector-gazebo-plugins : Depends: libgazebo7 but it is not going to be installed
                                         Depends: libsdformat4 but it is not going to be installed
                                         Depends: gazebo7
                                         Depends: ros-kinetic-gazebo-ros but it is not going to be installed
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Is there a way to add a GPS sensor using Gazebo 9.0?? I am using Gazebo 9 because I am running Ubuntu on VMware from my Macbook.
