Guys, on your Toughbook's that you have Linux and GPS installed. particularly the CF-30's, more particularly the Mk2... How many of you also have Bluetooth?

I am working on programming my new Motorola XPR7550 DMR Radio now and it is its own set of headaches. How many brain boggling hobbies can one man have! LoL

Most of my fleet is bluetooth equipped. A dozen or more?

You still having GPS fits? Sounds like you are thinking conflicts. The other alternative is hardware/cabling....

Hey, Teo how do we jump start this OEM GPS? Still works with W7 though, right Bill?

Yep, works like a charm in Win7, so the problem is not hardware. Also, Ubuntu 13.04 worked on Google Maps when I had the CF-30 Mk-1, but I had very similar problems to what I am having now with FoxTrot, Viking, XGPS, etc ( I tried them all!). My theory is that GPSD is flawed when it comes to serial GPS!

One thing I'm looking at....what version of GPSD are you running? I just fired up and ran a MK2 with 3.6 via USB Navigatrix. /dev/ttyS2.

I looked at the list of programs navigatrix uses and GPS Babel is on the list, also babel doc and gui. So do you have GPSBabel installed?

Confusing.

I'm working on a completely different project and there is gpsd data interfering.
My recommendation:
sudo killall gpsd
sudo apt-get remove gpsd gpsd-clients #testing....tested fine
sudo apt-get autoremove # as recommended by apt
restart
sudo apt-get gpsd gpsd-clients #answer yes to python and lib20
restart
In bios set gps to other than auto ...#I'm hacking a bios locked 52 so can't go there now.
OUT OF ORDER.....in terminal send $groups # to see if you are in dialout group
gun@GUNBP2M ~/Desktop $ groups
gun adm dialout fax cdrom floppy tape sudo audio dip video plugdev netdev fuse lpadmin scanner sambashare
gun@GUNBP2M ~/Desktop $
The first word is you, the rest are the groups you have access to. adm is supposed to cover it all but I add dialout anyway. Dialout includes access to tty. Check this to see if I am clear.
There's a quote somewher by berlios "sanity check"...I'll find it...wait one....heh! guess who. :D

On a CF-30MK3...using Navigatrix 0.5 June (newest version) 14.04
Okay, on the trusted CF-19 using Navigatrix, to type this up now:
Followed Jeff's advice and went into bios (f2) during booting, and changed gps to "enable" instead of "auto". I also temporarily disabled BT and Parallel Ports.
There are four manual choices to set: 3E8/IRQ11, 3F8/IRQ4, 2F8/IRQ3, 2E8/IRQ10.
I went through and tried each manual setting, followed by re-booting.
This one worked for me, but the MK2 might be different: 3E8/IRQ11
Bingo, voila, yes....xgps locked in the sats and foxtrotgps found my position instantly!
Give it a go, and let us know!
Cleve :salute:

I sorta did this. Mainly I went into bios and set the serial port drivers to disabled..... all of them plus bluetooth then re-booted. After that I shut down, went into bios and set to defaults and since I am running Mint 17 set monitor to "Internal" saved and booted.
GPSD started with sudo gpsd /dev/ttyS2 # no letters in there.
XGPS had 10 sats instantly using 6 or 7.
Foxtrotgps ran normally.
So....then I sudo killall gpsd
sudo dpkg-reconfigure gpsd
Yes to serial gps.
No to USB.
/dev/ttyS1
nothing
accepted default.
Re-boot and xgps was very quick...like 3 seconds.

A point:
If gpsd is running in a terminal and you shut it down "you shut it down". It's off. Which is why I use sudo dpkg-reconfigure. That way it's on and you can't kill it accidentally.
If you want to test a running, visible instance of gpsd open another terminal. <<the point. :)

Jeff, thank you, your above post makes since to me regarding gpsd.
BTW, I spoke with Moe over at the Navigatrix site, and he said if a question was posted regarding gps and linux, they would try to sort it out and help. Their site is found here:
http://navigatrix.net/viewforum.php?f=4 ... 8b9cef67a4
You need to register (free) with a user name and email/password. The forums are under "support" on their main page.
They are a great bunch. Lot's of good reading there.
