I'm trying to identify and locate the /dev/ pseudo-file that corresponds to the onboard, hardware GPS devices; installed in most modern Android smartphones, and tablets. I know that it probably varies sometimes, but the vast majority more than likely use a standard, logical name.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about; some examples of common, logical names for other kinds of hardware that you might recognize, are:

tty0, mouse0, event0, eth0, wlan0, sr0, video0, media0, bus0, usb0 gps0, disk0, sda1, sdb2, sdc3, and so on.

Most of these live inside /dev/, and it's subdirectories; such as /dev/input/.
