Re: [gpsd-dev] GPSD for AOSP

Hello all,


Here is the Android Architecture :

Résultat de recherche d'images pour "android HAL"


What I would like to do, is to use GPSD to read GPS localisation and make a custom HAL that will connect to GPSD in Socket. And then, this HAL will forward information to Applications.


For that, first of all, I just need to compile GPSD for Android and then customise my HAL to get GPS data from GPSD.


That’s why I was asking for a GPSD in AOSP, that would be very great for my use case.


Thanks for help

I can find no evidence of that.


Here is the AOSP Qualcomm GPS driver source:


git clone

git clone


It is all written in C++ and uses the AOSP Location API which does not look at

all like the gpsd API.


From the above location you can browse around and find the code for

other GPS.
