> I see no way around a main loop.  You need to keep polling gpsd.

A "main loop" makes sense if you have a typical GUI program.  (at least most 
of the time)  That's partly because most of the window system libraries are 
setup to expect that structure which allows call-backs without getting 
tangled in locks as long as you only have one thread.

But the OP said he didn't have a main loop and suggested a thread to poll 
gpsd.  That suggestion makes sense to me.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
