I guess it's possible that I fail to parse something because the device
defaults are odd or something. Which would be an easy bug to fix [early
on in execution, I send a bunch of commands to the device to configure
it how I want it. This would just be something to add].

Can you reliably reproduce this problem?
Does it still happen after unplugging and replugging the device?
If so, please could you look at what software you're using and
see if it posts a serial log?
Also, could you post a serial log from obdgpslogger for the non-working
