The Trimble timing receivers have a "single satellite" operating mode that says to only use the highest elevation satellite that it sees (or you can set a specific single satellite to track). It would be interesting to see how the performance compares to its standard "overdetermined clock" mode. It might help in situations where you have a poor sky view.
The Trimble devices tend to jump around quite a bit whenever the tracked satellites it is using changes. Having an accurate position helps minimize the jumps.
