What you are seeing is systemd's socket activation. Basically it means that if 
gpsd is stopped then systemd will listen on that port. If anyone tries to reah 
it it will start gpsd.service and pass the received data and the port 

If you want to start the system wide gpsd:

systemctl restart gpsd.service

If you want to run your own gpsd instance:

systemctl stop gpsd.socket # This will also stop gpsd.service if it's running.

and then just run gpsd.
