Because the files and folders in /usr/share/man are missing (to preserve
space), apt-get install gpsd will fail.

I also think NeronGPS is much better, but TangoGPS has some functions which
are quite useful (locate your friends). But even then, when missing gpsd,
Navit will also not work.

I was not having that much problems when using GPRS, okay, at first boot I
had to try twice, and sometimes when booting I got stuck in the PIN-code
screen, but then, I could make a call even when using GPRS, now I have to
choose... I don't know which option I prefer.
