GPS data on ROS2 Humble

Hi all,

what is the better way to acquire and publish GPS data from an NMEA serial stream on ROS2 Humble?

I could achieve it by porting the nmea_navsat_driver node from Rolling to Humble, but I'd like to know if there is an official better way. I have not found ready packages, for example, I searched for gpsd_client but it's not present in Humble (neither in Rolling).

Any suggestion will be really appreciated.

Thank you

The nmea_navsat_driver has already been ported to ros2. I've been using it under galactic just fine.

I also used it in Humble, but there's not an official porting. I had to clone the github repo.
