Try using cat to read the /dev/ttySAC* devices and see if you get NMEA
data from any of them first. I have a suspicion that whatever handles the naming of the
devices changed after an opkg upgrade to the daily feeds.

Then change your /etc/default/gpsd file so that it has whatever device
spits out NMEA data.
Let me know how this turns out.
