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.

- 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
