Re: [gpsd-users] cgps not reporting tracked satellites

My GPS is a Jackson Labs Firefly-1A and my gpsd version is 3.9.

I can configure the gps to output GPRMC, GPGGA, and a modified GPGGA message every second, but none of these have all the satellite info.

There's a command SYST:STAT? that I can issue to the gps to get the satellite info, but the gps only outputs this info when queried and can't be configured to output it in regular intervals.

Many GPS do not output sat view by default, or it may have been turned
off on your GPS.  Some of the gpsd drivers turn on sat view, some do
not.  We would need your gpsd version and GPS model to say mmore.

Two things you can try.  One, turn on gpsd debug to see if your GPS is
emitting sat view info that it understands.  Two, force your GPS to
output sat view data before starting gpsd.
