Some earlier versions of gpsd I think had issues where you could
only connect one client. Or it was a bug in the kernel drivers..
Anyways, multiple gpspipe instances have been working for me for
a while now with gpsd-3.21.

I also found some issues in gnss-motmdm driver for closing the
gnss device, see:


And I think the xtra2.bin data for agps is now working too :)


At least I now get a fix in about two minutes after running the
update.sh, going outside, and starting cgps.

No idea about the xgps related stuff, I mostly use cgps for
testing with GPSD_UNITS=metric cgps.
