Yes, "gpsmod" is a name that make have been used of by many developers.
There might be many programs called gpsmon around. But I think all this
one does is respond to NMEA sentences. So it might be useful.
The first step in figuring this out is to look if there is any data coming
out. Put a scope on the TX pin and see if there is data. Then if there
is data pipe it to a terminal
