Morgan, this is great news! That zero-zero dude get's thumbs up. His work a round for the break is right on. Glad it's all better again.

Ya, I was happy to get it working again. Yes, he makes it seem easy. :) Fairly simple fix, actually, or he made it seem simple. Between getting the boot problem straightened out and getting Foxtrotgps running again, the unit is back to operating normal, and I am happy. :)

Mklym,

Do you have any hints for getting the stock gps in a 29 to answer gpsd?

An USB Pharos 500 runs fine. I would like to get it set up so I dont have the

USB hanging out or if I dont have it with me.

EDIT -----------------

I found it on ttyS1. I guess I fat fingered it the first time I was searching...

Now to get foxtrot to find it...

If it is on ttyS1, then in terminal:

Code:
sudo killall gpsd
sudo gpsd -D5 -N -n /dev/ttyS1


That should get your GPS streaming data. Now start FoxtrotGPS and it will find the data stream. Foxtrot looks for gpsd, not the hardware. HTH.

Right on! Good that it is all sorted. You should be able to shorten the terminal to gpsd /dev/ttyS1, and killall before does not hurt.

What threw me off the trail was that Foxtrotgps was really slow to find the internal the first time.

I read another post that said it would take 15 minutes sometimes. I left it running for 20 minutes
and it did NOT find it. I could see the data stream from S1, but no love at Foxtrot. Then I shut it down
and restarted everything and then it found it. Now it finds it quick and as soon as the satillites
are pinned down I have a fix. I even took the module out and reseated it thinking maybe a contact
was corroded or loose.

Off to the library to destroy their bandwidth loading maps. ;)

You can also reconfigure gpsd in Terminal and tell her where your gps device is located. Here's the Link:
viewtopic.php?f=39&t=1319
To paraphrase: You would type this command in Terminal:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure gpsd
Typing in that command takes you to the gpsd configuration script page. Follow the directions on the above posting, and put in your gps details that Sadlmkr discovered:
"dev/ttyS2" is the setting for the Panasonic Factory gps configured on Com 3. You enter this and tab through the script and save/exit, and then run this script:
sudo service gpsd restart
Close out Terminal and re-start your system.
Foxtrot should find your location immediately and start tracking sats. :cheers:
