GPS Daemon



gpsd is a daemon that listens to a GPS or Loran receiver and translates the positional data into a simplified format that can be more easily used by other programs, like chart plotters. The package comes with a sample client that plots the location of the currently visible GPS satellites (if available) and a speedometer. It can also use DGPS/ip.

Our Changes

  • rebuild the autoconf/automake build system
  • added a parser for HCHDG output, we tested this only with the etrex summit from Garmin
  • after a short review of the source, we recommend to everybody, DO NOT RUN THIS DAEMON AS ROOT


The original Project isn't well maintained any more, so we took our Sources from the GPSDrive Project.
