The non-free files holding the GPS infos/code are the following:
/system/vendor/bin/gpsd /system/vendor/lib/hw/gps.s5pc110.so /system/vendor/etc/gps.xml /system/etc/gps.conf
Apparently, the protocol that is used by the chip to provide the GPS infos is MEIF. The GPSD component is in charge of translating that to standard NMEA that is sent to the gps.s5pc110.so lib via the /dev/socket/gps Unix socket, created by GPSD.
We have written code to read data from the correct serial interface: https://gitorious.org/replicant/crespo-gps-utils
It currently doesn't work: it fails to somehow boot the chip. Though, it works after starting gpsd once and stopping it. It must be doing some kind of magic code to start the chip.
Related gps.xml parameters¶
We have tried to change some parameters in gps.xml to see how it behaves:
|acPortName||/dev/s3c2410_serial1||/dev/s3c2410_serial42||The chip wasn't "booted"|
|gpioNStdbyPath||/sys/class/sec/gps/GPS_PWR_EN/value||/sys/class/sec/gps/GPS_PWR_EN/value2||The chip was booted|
|gpioNResetPath||/sys/class/sec/gps/GPS_nRST/value||/sys/class/sec/gps/GPS_nRST/value2||The chip was booted|
