in here is a small sample:

 Apologies all, I thought I'd replied on this thread last night (long windily) but I can find no trace of it either in the archives or my outbox - such are the vagaries of gmail!

Anyway, to summarize:
1. I shall go and get an echosounder log complete with gll sentences etc and send it off.

2. I cannot duplicate the unwanted JSON messages problem. It occurred after my tinkering with a much modified copy of gpspipe which I was using as a template for a nmea grabber/sddbt parser. I would not have mentioned it but the problem persisted even when I used the "Real" gpspipe and survived at least one restart. The following day, all was back to normal!

3. I fully understand that depth is not part of the gps dataset. However, as depth is often in the datastream supplied by marine NMEA multiplexors/re-transmitters and is a "useful" number to mariners, it is difficult to use gpsd in this environment without either discarding it or separately parsing it. I use a gps signal in 3/4 different instruments software packages on my little boat and the advantages of a socketed system are therefore obvious. ( it would also significantly simplify wiring!).

Thanks for your offers of help, I'm sure there are lots of people out there who will appreciate it.
