As I mentioned in my initial post, I also see -G not working whenever I use 
gpsfake. When I start gpsfake there can be NO instance of gpsd running, because 
gpsfake itself wants to launch gpsd. Under these circumstances I have to kill 
all of the systemd stuff since it conflicts, therefore, systemd shouldn't have 
any effect here.

What kind of test are you looking for that's not covered in my initial post?

Thanks everyone! Hoping to find a solution,

Josh Q

I don't use systemd, so I can not be a good source of sytemd bug reports.

But it does appear that an overwheliming percentage of people that have 
problems with gpsd are using it with systemd.  Their problems almost always go 
away when they stop using systemd.

Just as the current problem seems all tangled up in systemd.
