[I know next to nothing about Windows so if "under services" means Windows,
this may be irrelevant.]
gpsd works fine as a daemon. The details depend upon which OS and/or
distribution you are using.
There are two ways to setup gpsd. One is to grab the source tar file, build,
install... The other is to get a version of gpsd and ancillary files setup
for your distribution.
If you do a >yum install gpsd< on Fedora, it will install a udev rule to
start gpsd when a USB TTY device is plugged in.
It also comes with /etc/rc.d/init.d/gpsd and /etc/sysconfig/gpsd so it should
be easy to modify things to start on booting if you want it to use something
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's. I hate spam.
