What do you mean by "GPS localization'?  gpsd only read from GPS
devices, directly or indirectly.

Once you say 'HAL', you are into an area I know nothing of...

Except I though HAL meant hardware Abstraction Layer, and no hardware
in sight.

And why not have the app directly connect to gpsd?

I doubt that is all.  Where will gpsd get its data from?  Why not use
the AOSP location API?

We do not know of such a thing.  If you write that, or find that, send
us the code.  We can give you help, but we have no expertise in AOSP
