The "GPS Health" menu choice never really did anything. It will always
say "Doing position fixes, error code: 1". However, the GPS Firmware and
Signal Strength menus should report back proper information.

Can you elaborate on "it does not set the right time"? Is it some random
time, or is it off by some fixed general offset (like 1 hour)?

Do the Tracking & Lock LEDs light up with the new receiver?
