[maemo-users] Accessing GPS on Nokia N810

Any tips on accessing the GPS on the N810 ?

I built cgps from the gpsd toolkit, which can get data from gpsd if it's 
running. If I start the Nokia map, gpsd starts up. But I can't see how to
start it manually - if I try, it says
  GPS device /dev/pgp nonexistent or can't be read

hmmm ... if I start /usr/libexec/navicore-gpsd-helper manually, it emits
NMEA sentences on stdout. Hmmm .... have to try that outside to see if
if really works ..
