It is part of fso-frameworkd package. It is not a separate binary or process.

I use

 if [ ! -d $sys_pm_gps ]; then
 echo 1 | sudo tee $sys_pm_gps/pwron

to turn GPS on and

 gpsd -F gpsd.sock -N -n -D 1 /dev/ttySAC1

to talk to it. I can then run e.g.

 echo rw | netcat localhost gpsd > gps.dump

to capture all GPS data.
