Even for free, maybe not worth it.  It has no ducumentation, except how to
setup the Bluetooth.  Nothing on protocols, accuracy, configuration, etc.

I have heard reports you can get NMEA out the USB port.

Yes, nothing special about the Pi.  It works (almost) like any other
Linux host.

That means the data path from the device, to gpsd, to cgps is fine.
No need to look at the path more, it works.

Never heard of Direwolf.

You said you never got status?  But there it is.  You have a 3D fix, and
you just got it (not old).

So, what is the problem again?  You cgps looks fine to me.
