Ok I figured out that the GPS is running:
 
cat /dev/ttyS2
 
Provides the messages.  however I'm noticing that
 
$GPRMC,,V,,,,,,,,,,N*53
$GPVTG,,,,,,,,,N*30
$GPGGA,,,,,,0,00,99.99,,,,,,*48
$GPGSA,A,1,,,,,,,,,,,,,99.99,99.99,99.99*30
$GPGSV,1,1,01,18,,,27*74
$GPGLL,,,,,,V,N*64
$GPZDA,,,,,00,00*48
$GPTXT,01,01,01,NMEA unknown msg*58
 
I take it that I'm just not picking up satalites, but it looks like I have 3 good signals.  I have the gumstix sitting in the tard with a clear view of the sky.

Subject: [Gumstix-users] Starting the GPS

Is there a command to start the GPS? Or does it start automactically upon being powered up?
 
 
Thanks,
Michael
