doesn't work here -- according to netstat fso-gpsd listens on  
a quick glance over /etc/init.d&fso-gpsd did not reveal an easy way to  
change that.

ssh -L 2947:localhost:2947 root at

otoh works immediately (and does not require to modify the navit.xml).

but i would defiitely prefer the solution you describe, so, someone out  
there having some ideas how to make fso-gpsd communicate with the outside
