I may have to bring home the gps to figure it all out.
I found a nice program which is called xgps will show the satellites.
Ubuntu users take note! If gpsd is installed - use it. If you prefer a serial
connection, uninstall gpsd. The reason is that gpsd starts automatically when,for example, an usb gps is connected. This will block the serial
port that the gps communicates with( /dev/ttyUSB0 in many cases), hence no separate serial connection to the gps is possible. So it's an either or situation.
The baud rate is normally 4800 baud, but check on your gps documentation
xgps is a utility that comes with gpsd. I you use a serial connection a satellite
view is available through the dashboard plugin.
