I noticed a similar problem, it seems to be too many programs trying to 
talk to the GPS device at the same time. Tangogps uses gpsd while 
locations uses diversity-daemon. I have been playing with a version of 
gpsd that I compiled myself so I would have UBX support, I noticed that 
the diversity daemon really didn't like it when I kicked the GPS into 
UBX mode. I killed off the diversity daemon and gpsd/tangogps have had 
no problems since.
