it's a usb puck.  so no.  Actually I haven't actually looked but typical USB is +5v data+ data- and gnd.  As
far as I know the only place the pps signal is available is inside the puck between the GPS module and the usb

Well, usb serial immitatiors can also immitate the control lines from a serial
line. Thus one of the usb packets can be a simlation of the PPS signalalong
the appropriate serial line.  But those are likely to have far worse behaviour than the actual lines.
It might however be better than the data phrases usually coming along the
serial line.

 like I said I COULD crack it open and run a new cable that included the pps line.

      Isn't there an output line from the puck which carries the PPS signal?
