The gps-server is a program which interfaces with a GPS unit via the serial port, optionally sends some initialization data to the GPS unit, and publishes the GPS data stream over shared memory. This program is designed to replace lsb-server when only a GPS unit is used instead of an LSB. This program produces no output.


    Command line format

      gps-server <gps serial port> <baud rate> [initialization data file]

    Typical Usage

      gps-server /dev/ttyS0 38400 enableDGPS.bin
