As far as i know Location doesn't use FSO-gpsd. It uses the more FSO
native access method (ogpsd?) for communication. FSO-gpsd is only for
programs like tangogps or navit which uses gpsd and now needs this
wrapper for that purpose.
If someone of you manage to use fso-gpsd with tangogps for more than a
few minutes without problems than please report it. My try to do so
ended in a failure why i use (old) gpsd at the moment.
