We are not an Ubuntu support list.  Are you using the gpsd from the
gpsd release tar balls?  If not, what are you using.

It's the standard version that came with a default Ubuntu 18.04 install.  But
yes fair enough I can hit up an Ubuntu support list.  To be fair when I removed
gpsd from being started by systemd and ran it manually all seemed to be
working fine.  So it doesn't appear to specifically be a gpsd issue.

Without knowing how you installed gpsd it is hard to know if that is
the right command.  If you installed the Ubuntu package, then that is
not the correct useage.  You need to use systemd tools.

Okay, makes sense.

Yup.  You are trying to use the standalone gpsd methods to run
gpsd, but you have your gpsd installed to use systemd.

Go read up on how systemd works.

Will do!
