I watched the discussion/wrangling.  I didn't see any clean/simple solutions.


I'd like to nominate one more item to the reasonably high priority wish list.

gpsmon doesn't display much timing info.

I don't have any great suggestions.


In the NMEA mode, it has a PPS offset stuffed into the GSA block.

I'd be happy if there was a character I could type that would flip the 
"Time:" display on the Cooked PVT line at the top to be offset time and/or 
PPS offset.

Another possibility would be for an input character to switch from displaying 
PPS offset to serial offset.


Similarly, in the SIRF mode, there is a PPS offset in the Packet type 7 
block, but no hints about the serial (non-PPS) offset.  Again, I don't have 
any great suggestions.

I think I could squeeze things like most of the blocks on the lower right so 
that the Packet Type line was merged into the block header line.

Another possibility would be a mode to add another line to the display.  I 
think a whole line could show both PPS and non-PPS offset.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
