you should try to run gpsd as root. so you see if it is an permission issue

sudo oder # gpsd /etc/rfcomm0
than test it with telnet

telnet localhost 2947
type P

But don't know if gpsd should run as root!?
Outside where is no wlan/lan/www it doesn't metter imho...

if you not run gpsd as root you shoud edit the permissions that you are  
allow the read /dev/rfcomm0
