Then I don't know - deleting the pickle file was the fix for me.
You may want to take a look at the mailing list archives, there are
various procedures for checking that the gps has power and such.
telnet localhost gpsd
You should get at least one message per second after hitting "enter"
after the "r" - whether you have a fix or not. If this works, then
things are mostly ok you just don't have a fix. If you get nothing, then
there are communication or power problems that prevents the gps unit
You may also want to try
grep ogpsd < /var/log/frameworkd.log
check if there are any messages indicating trouble. this particular one
is normal, although it looks like a problem:
2009.02.25 22:47:06 ogpsd WARNING (could not write to
'/sys/bus/platform/devices/neo1973-pm-gps.0/power_on': [Errno 2] No such
file or directory:'/sys/bus/platform/devices/neo1973-pm-gps.0/power_on')
