Probably a bit late, but the GR-601W (code name MACX-1) from navisys.com.tw

I have a couple of these. They have a built in USB to serial adaptor, but
with the PPS attached to the correct lines. Obviously because you are using
USB you now have a max accuracy limited by the USB polling speed which is
about 1ms. However, for a simple plug-in and works out of the box device
it's pretty nice. I have a couple here, I could probably arrange to setup a
Chrony feed if someone wants to examine the stability externally?
Another idea I had (but never completed) is that I have a few Garmin 18
devices. I was going to splice a serial port and USB cable together to give
power to the Garmin 18... (if you don't need the accuracy better than 1ms
you could attach it to a butchered serial to usb adaptor)
I got a "Globalsat Timing 1pps GPS Module MTK MT3301 MT3179 Chip" from ebay.
Not a bad price, and seems pretty solid. It's ttl level, so you need a max232
or similar chip to match TX, RX, and DCD.
No. Most serial ports respond to ttl level inputs. While the standard is
different, the actuallity is that serial port chip manufacturers know that
they are often (almost always) driven by sources that do not obey the
Ie, try it without a serial adapter ( which introduces a time delay as well
although probably at the usec level ).
Don't have it hooked up completely yet - turns out I'm missing the correct
gender serial null modem cable parts - so as soon as that gets here I will
hook it up.
PPS does work; at least gpsd sees it.
