Try a different version of gpsd. They seem to keep changing how they handle commands (kismet has several workarounds to try to handle different issues with gpsd).

I don't know if they've fixed the packet parsing problem if multiple commands arrive in the same tcp packet, kismet introduces artifical delays to try to work around that.
