I agree. Unfortunately in my case the manufacturer decided to build
the USB-to-serial converter in to the device and there is no way to
detect the GPS without communicating. It's not the way I would have
done it, but I have to live with it. I'm just trying to create a nice
interface to the device for Linux users.

Have you considered gpsd?
