Thanks for the reply.

For the device I have /dev/tty.USA19H1811P1.1
I have "Use GPS Coordinates" for the "non fixed" position option
Tracing options are every second.

That's it.

I'm almost thinking that the computer can't read the GPS, although it claims "GPS started in serial mode".

Build gpsd, run it as gpsd -p /dev/tty.USA19H1811P1.1
then run
telnet localhost 2947

in the telnet, type:

and wait until you start getting data
if you get data, configure kismac to read from gpsd; does it work? if you don't get data, well, that's the problem.
