Hi,

I got a bu-353 GPS working with an app and mock position.

The gps did not show up as an tty device, so i could not get the Android_GPS_lib64 working.. Smile

I used this lib to read the serial.
https://github.com/felHR85/UsbSerial

Then this NMEA parser to parse the data from serial to something readable:
https://gist.github.com/javisantana/1326141

In android manifest the following permissions should be set:
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_MOCK_LOCATION" />


I used Androids LocationManager to make a mock position.
On the device i had to enable developer mode (Settings -> About tablet, click 7 times on "Build number"), and then allow my app to set mock position in settings -> developer options.
