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.

Ok. I will write a script to grab *DOP and see how useful it is for detecting a walking GPS.
