Re: [gpsd-users] GL* strings and gpspipe

It is not pointless to do both gpspipe and gpsd, as we have potentially 
multiple applications using gpsd, including ntpd.  We would prefer our 
customers use gpsd, as it provides the most flexibility.  gpspipe is a stop-gap.

The simultated gps strings from gpspipe do not seem to include all the strings 
written natively by the U-Blox chip when it is writing NMEA, and we are worried 
about compatibility for existing customers when we add gpsd to their system.  
We will try to make it easy for them to shut off gpsd and run without gpsd, but 
they will lose other functionality, which they never had before anyway.

The patch for leap second for the u-blox driver and ntpd I posted some time ago 
on this mailing list.

A 3.18.1 patch should be forthcoming when we release with 3.18.1.
