> I'm looking for guidance on installing Chrony on a Raspberry Pi running Raspbian. I have the Ultimate GPS Hat installed that provides PPS on pin 4. I will have only intermittent internet connections, so the PPS should be the primary time source. I want the time adjustment/correction to be immediate after boot up. I don't want a smooth/gradual correction.
I have a raspberry-pi running both gpsd and chronyd and its working very well in an offline mode.

Yes = chrony replaces ntpd

I suggest you take a look at the gpsd documentation. This explains how you can use the gpsd daemon to feed PPS data to chrony
To make life simple I suggest your initial approach should be to use the debian (raspbian) packages, which will install the required startup scripts for both daemons
aptitude install gpsd
Get your configuration working with gpsd first. The documentation is good so that shouldn't be too much of a problem. The mail list (for gpsd) is also your friend if you run into problems
aptitude install chrony
Configure chrony as described in the gpsd docs
When you have it all running with the raspbian distributed software, then look at compiling/configuring more recent versions of both gpsd and chrony
Hope that helps
