Bad if you want to run under systemd(umb).  Good if you don't want to
run under systemd(mber).

That is telling us you are already running gpsd.  You can only run
one copy of gpsd.  Kill the first one, then start a new one, as root:

    killall -9 gpsd
    gpsd -nND 4 /dev/gps0

And it is, but you already knew that.

Outside of it having no way to work properly, it is fine.
