gpsd is a service daemon that monitors one or more GPSes attached to
a host computer through serial or USB ports, making all data on the
location/course/velocity available to be queried on TCP port 2947
of the host computer. With gpsd, multiple GPS client applications
(such as navigational and wardriving software) can share access to
GPSes without contention or loss of data.
Applications that presently use gpsd include pyGPS, Kismet, GPSdrive,
gpeGPS, position, roadmap, roadnav, and gaia.
