> > I have a LT-40 that I am using with GPSd+kismet for the most part everything works right. though do to passing though an urban canyon or satalite signal loss my gps can sometimes walk in a random direction for up to a half a mile. Is there any way to filter this walking effect? My Kismet-Mmm-dd-yyy-x.gps log files only reports quality="0" for GP:SD:TR:AC:KL:OG regardless if it is walking or not... and the non track log entries have no gps quality fields.

Actually I am using php to read the log files and import them into a database. and I have done a lot of work with GPSes before and from what I understand and am seeing the "fix" field just tells me if I have altitude information or not. It does not tell me if my GPS is walking. Is there a way for kismet to record [PDOP|HDOP|VDOP] from the GSA string from the GPS? I really don't want to have to write another script to query this from GPSd while running kismet to merge the logs later as I am running this from an EeePC900.
