Hi all,

The GPS module for the imx6 sabresd reference board is the Locosys AH-1613 gps module.

I tried to look for the linux drivers for this module but came up short.

I only saw under kernel_mx/mxc/gps_ioctl/... and those are just ioctls.

Anyone know where the linux driver for this device is located at?

Thanks!

Hi ,

GPS doesn't need driver in order to work properly because there's no driver model for GPS they are serial (very common UART) devices.

No Linux Driver Needed - Linux Driver Project

If you have a special GPS device or want you want to use it with a file system interface like /proc

you need to register your serial GPS using Discipline Line and Serial Core.

Serial Drivers

You could take a look in drivers/misc/ti-st/st-core.c

Hello All,

I used R13.4.1 on IMX6 SDP.
