Ah, you mean handling the connection myself. If I'm right I have to somehow 
send the right JSON to gpsd and then get the data and use gps_unpack to parse 
it into the struct gps_data_t, right?

If I'm right: is there an API to create the right JSON to correctly connect to 
gpsd? Or I need to manually craft it?

Yes, yes and yes (doesn't means I fully grasped it ;) ), and to be sure this 
is the example code:

    struct gps_data_t gps_data;

    ret = gps_open(hostName, hostPort, &gps_data);

    (void) gps_stream(&gps_data, WATCH_ENABLE | WATCH_JSON, NULL);

    /* Put this in a loop with a call to a high resolution sleep () in it. */
    if (gps_waiting (&gps_data, 500)) {
        errno = 0;
        if (gps_read (&gps_data) == -1) {
        } else {
            /* Display data from the GPS receiver. */
            if (gps_data.set & ...

And this is what I'm currently doing: asking gpsd each 80 millisenconds to to 
the gps_waiting code block.

I'll try to look at libgps code to see what I can get from there.
