just another problem I see:

- gpsd will switch the output format soon. While I guess there will still be
support for the old one, you should really consider to use libgpsmm or geoclue
instead of trying to parse gps sentences manually. Doing a proper arsing the
output form the various GPS models is error-prone and a lot of work to get it
right, better use a library which is well tested.
