The gpsd service daemon can monitor one or more GPS devices connected to
a host computer, making all data on the location and movements of the
sensors available to be queried on TCP port 2947.
This package contains a Python interface to connect to gpsd, together with
a module providing a controlled testing environment. It also ships two tools
which utilize the interface: gpsprof for latency-profiling, and gpsfake to
simulate a GPS by playing back a logfile.

gpsd (3.16-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* [5001c11a] Do not start gpsd.service by default.
We use socket based activation only.
If one needs a running gpsd.service at boot - without being started by
gpsd.socket - you'll have to configure systemd to start it.
Too many people have gpsd installed as dependency and do not need yet
another running process.
