Yes, I think you are correct except in one case. The NMEA offset may
very well be mostly because the NMEA sentence is actually "off".
Such sentences may be as much as a full second "off". First the NMEA
standard requires only one second accuracy and also the sentence is
sent over a slow serial link along with other data and when you get it
depends a lot on what they "other data" is. This is the reason the
GPS has a PPS. NMEA was invented for ship navigation, not timing.
