Apparently the "u-blox8 GNSS Mouse Receiver / GR-801" (brochure attached) is not recognized by udev (debian testing package).

My receiver is not hotplugged by gpsd. But things are working well if I add it manually to DEVICES in /etc/default/gpsd.

So instead of that, I have added the following to /lib/udv/rules.d/60-gpsd.rules and the receiver is detected by udev and correctly hotplugged by gpsd:

# u-blox AG, u-blox 8 (tested with u-blox8 GNSS Mouse Receiver / GR-801) [linux module: cdc_acm]
ATTRS{idVendor}=="067b", ATTRS{idProduct}=="2303", SYMLINK+="gps%n", TAG+="systemd", ENV{SYSTEMD_WANTS}="gpsdctl@%k.service"

For information, when I plug my receiver, `lsusb` gives me:
Bus 004 Device 022: ID 067b:2303 Prolific Technology, Inc. PL2303 Serial Port
