I tried both an Earthmate USB GPS and a
Globalsat BU-353 USB GPS with Freebad 6.2
on either a Dell Latitude LS 450 or a Toshiba
Satellite 2595XDVD.

With either device on either laptop plugging in
the USB GPS causes ugen to activate, resulting
in ugen0* entries in /dev.

Unfortunately, gpsd won't work with any of these
/dev entries.

Linux maps either GPS to a ttyUSBx entry that works
with gpsd.

How can I get these GPS units to work with Freebsd?
