Kevin, Geoff, Joseph, and anyone else who has this problem....
Thanks to Geoff for those measurements.
I had an e-mail response from Garmin which suggested turning off the
position averaging introduced as a new option in 3.50 firmware. Whilst
that may have helped a little, I still saw (at 19200 baud) sentences
starting during the PPS signal, i.e. more than one second delayed. This
using a single GPS sentence.
The Garmin rep who wrote to me suggested that Garmin were unaware of the
problem, but would investigate it. Could I urge you all to report this
problem to Garmin, please, so that we have a greater chance of getting a
fix in the next firmware upgrade?
