[gpsd-users] gpsd not detecting garmin etrex

Hi all,

  I'm trying to get gpsd to recognize my Garmin etrex vista (RS232 serial interface) attached to my netbook running Ubuntu 12.04. The connection is made by means of an RS232-usb adapter (prolific pl2303).  The serial communication is working ok as I can see data putting the gps in NMEA mode.
  I've been running gpsd un foreground to see the debug info and I can see that the daemon is trying to autodetect the gps but for some reason this is failing (after a number of minutes trying).
  I'd like to know if there's a way to override the autodetect funcion and set the device type by hand.  I'm aware of gpsctl buy the behaviour is the same (as with other clients).
  Thanks in advance!
