GPS Manager API

GPS Manager library

Application that needs GPS data can use this API to manage GPS daemon start and stop. This is needed in small handhelds where it is not good to have gpsd running all the time (because of battery and memory constraints) and to guarantee that only one gpsd process is running simultaneously even if multiple processes need the GPS data.

The idea of the API is to allow multiple applications to use gpsd services but only when there is at least one application that needs GPS data. If no application is running, the gpsd is not started at all or gpsd stops itself automatically (to save memory and battery life).
