[time-nuts] Ublox Neo-6M time error.

Hal, thanks for reminding me of what I ran into on the LEA-6T modules.  When you first power them on, they are often a second off in time.  It's not until the NAV-TIMEUTC->valid field returns a set validUTC flag that the time can be counted on.  But it usually doesn't take more than a minute or two after power-on that the flag gets set and the time jumps to valid time.

 I'm pretty sure that I've seen one GPS unit that was off by
 a second.  I'm 
 pretty sure it didn't get fixed by waiting a while. 
 But I don't remember 
 which type it was so this is just a rumor.
 I think I was using NMEA mode rather than a vendor specific
 binary mode.
 These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
