On GTA02 ogpsd uses UBX only (no NMEA) so the only overhead compared to
omgps would be that the parsing is implemented in python.

Do you think that your UBX parser code is ready to replace the python
parser? If yes, then there wouldn't be any problems anymore with using
ogpsd (currently performace/battery usage).
