I think you may be reading too much into "stationary" mode.

If you know the position, you can get time with only one satellite.  Timing 
receivers normally have a survey mode to get an accurate position.  If you 
have a module that supports timing, you should find documentation describing 
the survey command and/or a command to upload the surveyed position and/or 
mention of timing and working with fewer satellites.

My guess is that stationary mode is something else, but I didn't find any 
good documentation.  I'd guess a filter on a sequence of positions so the 
position doesn't jump around but somehow recovers without a full survey if 
you do move it.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
