Comment [OT] Clarification: What's GPSD (Score 1) 164 164

Can someone pls explain what above poster meant by:
> GPS kicks-ass. Interact with other GPS systems and keep track of things via GPSD and such.

what's the point of GPSD? I know its a deamon that allows multiple GPS receivers to send GPS data but what is the point of that, why do you care where the device is.

wikipedia article doesn't explain why you'd want to use it


Some people manage by the book, even though they don't know who wrote the book or even what book.
