GPS woes. /dev/ttyUSB# does not get created


Recommended Posts

When I connect my Garmin GPS18 USB to Pineapple Mark V (firmware version 2.0.4) It shows up in dmesg:

usb 1-1.2: USB disconnect, device number 4
usb 1-1.2: new full-speed USB device number 6 using ehci-platform
however there is no corresponding new tty device listed in /dev. Only a new USB device under /dev/bus/usb/001/004
I have attempted to install GPSD on the sd card, but was unable to get it to enable at boot, so I removed it & installed in on the Mark V.
I can start gpsd from the command line (with gpsd /dev/bus/usb/001/004), and telnet to localhost:2947 and get the following:
telnet localhost 2947
So I know GPSD is installed & runs, I know my GPS is seen by the system, however I cannot get the two to talk consistently as the USB device number changes between reboots (usually between 4& 5)
Short of a factory reset and trying again, I am not sure where to go from here to get GPS working on the Mark V.
