Yeah, TCP would work.  I want to avoid flakey bits, so Bluetooth is a no go.  I was thinking about setting up an Ethernet over USB tether thing and then allowing the user to configure the app to establish a tcp socket with the host at a specified IP/port on that Ethernet.

That depends on the host system having the bits required to bring up Ethernet over USB.  And might depend on Network-Manager unless there's a way to do it other than by using the GUI bits I've found myself dependant on.

I don't know that I'd be able to convince the phone to listen(), but if I could do that, the host can find the IP of the phone using DHCP or BOOTP, and then bring up the socket by using a well known port.

Just take
and throw gpsd onto it.
