I'm using a Navilock NL-402U usb gps receiver on Ubuntu Lucid Lynx. This works fine with gpsd (Version 2.92), except that gpsdrive-2.10pre4 shows status no gps. Looking at gpsd -nN -D5 -b /dev/ttyACM0 the relevant bit of the output seems to be:
gpsd: checking client(0)
gpsd: <= client(0): R
gpsd: => client(0): =

Now to the best of my knowledge the R command is obsoleted and can no longer be used. The correct command to pull nmea gps data from gpsd should be ?WATCH={"enable":true,"nmea":true} ?

Can you confirm that this could be the problem (or am I missing something here) and take adequate steps to remedy the situation in all future versions of gpsdrive ?

Thanks in advance!!!!!

    Please use a current GpsDrive version:

    1. GpsDrive 2.10pre4 is a really old and outdated
    2. In gpsd 2.90+ the API has changed, the necessary changes are included in GpsDrive 2.11+
