Subject:Request watch json true question
Date:07:16:58 28/10/2010

I'm running gpsd 2.95-6 which I believe is json enabled.

I was trying to find out why gpspipe -r gives me[1] nmea output only and at later it gives [2] both json/nmea output. By default according to the docs, gpsd when started, the default is to set the json reporting to false in WATCH (which explains [1])

It appears in kismet code if it detects gpsd is json enabled then it writes out WATCH request to turn json reporting on (true). But it appears that this request only takes effect after I shut down the kismet server (which explains [2]). Is this how its supposed to work?

I would like to have consistency in the output from gpspipe. One alternative found is to use telnet and invoke explicit WATCH request to set values to be same each time.

Thanks for any clarification you can give.
