GPS service daemon

GPSD is a service daemon that handles GPSes and other navigation-related sensors reporting over USB, serial, TCP/IP, or UDP connections and presents reports in a well-documented JSON format. The package also includes a number of clients which can be run against a local GPSD or a GPSD on another machine.
