The library tried to import SoftwareSerial and is unable to find it.

I did a test to see if Hardware Serial would work it appears that I've got it working with this commit:

But I've only tested it with pic32/ChipKit boards.

Thanks for raising the issue and apologies it took so long to be reviewed. I gave it a quick shot on the Due and saw the same compilation issue. Putting the SoftwareSerial.h include behind an AVR only ifdef fixed the problem, and I updated the due_parsing example to clarify that a hardware serial connection needs to be used. Ran the example on my Due and it seems to get a location fix and parse the data as expected. Thanks again for raising the issue!
