Try to include the firmware version as well. Most devices have a fixed cycle time of 1 second, so this command may fail with a message. Will show an error message if there is no matching gpsd driver, or multiple matches, or the unique match has no display support in gpsmon. Before the client has issued a command that requests a channel assignment, a short timeout 60 seconds applies. GPSD presently fully recognizes only the 2.

It recognizes some vendor extensions: On the personal-computer hardware available in and later, computation lag induced by gpsd will be negligible, on the order of a millisecond.

Former authors whose bits have been plowed under by code turnover: First, read this whole FAQ gpad reporting apparent misbehavior as a bug. Most of this lag is due to the fact that GPSes normally emit fixes once per second, thus expected latency is 0.

The gpsd developers would like to receive information about the offsets observed by users for each type of receiver. You probably want to turn static navigation off for pedestrian use, as it is likely to report speed zero and position changing in large jumps.

Nevertheless, the possibility of a resource-leak bug alarmed us enough that after 2. Commands to add and remove GPS device paths from the daemon’s device list must be written to a local Unix-domain socket which will be accessible only to programs running as root.

How can I verify operation of a new GPS?

Why use the gpsd gpsc rather than parsing raw NMEA? The -t option sets up a fallback type. You can set that up like this:. This may be useful is, for example, you want to capture the startup message from a device that displays firmware version information there.

The only exceptions we know of are some u-blox modules that pretend to be USB modems. It should be particularly helpful for reducing timing jitter. This will be useful mainly when isolating test instances of gpsd from production ones.

Change the GPS’s cycle time. Both go through the libgps. GPSD itself adds almost no measurable latencybut RS transmission time to gpsd can be more significant; you can cut this time by increasing the baud rate. The daemon will open a socket listening for UDP datagrams arriving on the indicated address and port, which will be interpreted as though they had been issued by a serial device. We will fix such bugs promptly.

You can verify correct operation by first starting gpsd and then xgpsthe X windows test client. You can determine whether your GPS emits this pulse by running at -D 5 and watching for carrier-detect state change messages in the logfile.

Set M1 or clear M0 static navigation. This switch can be used with the -t option without specifying a device. If xgps reports the same sort of bad numbers as your client, you have a real gpsd bug.

If you are able to identify other bad firmware versions, please let us know about it. Adding the -f will force low-level access and suppress the normal complaint when this tool can’t find a GPSD to work through. If you have notes or comments on the logfile or the GPS, or any additional information you think might be helpful, add them as additional comments not containing a colon after these headers. You will want that for your report. Give it a string that is a distinguishing prefix of exactly one driver type name; this will be used for mode, speed, and rate switching if the driver selected by the packet type lacks those capabilities.


It is a bad idea for applications to speak the protocol directly: This command will generally do nothing after the first time you use it, because the device type will already have been discovered. By using gpsd as an intermediary applications avoid contention for serial devices.

If this assumption is false, gpsd may not be able to open GPS devices in order to read them such failures will be logged. Following the command letter you may type hex digit pairs; end with a newline. The shared-memory interface is intended primarily for embedded deployments in which gpsd monitors a single device, and its principal advantage is that a daemon instance configured with shared memory but without the sockets interface loses a significant amount of runtime weight.
