Yeah, the Venus 6 is getting a bit old, but it should be not too bad.

The Skytraq Windows tool leets you set the top of second mode and
set it into flash memory.  So a one time thing.

You can download the 'GNSS Viewer Program' here:

Hmm, looking at the Venus 6 binary commands, I do not see the
way to force the top of second mode.  It must be in later firmware:

So this part will need to hard solution.  I guess if the GPS serial
time is stamped after say: 850 milliSeconds, wait 500 milliseconds to
set the PPS base time (+1).

Patches welcome.
