 Hal, your replies break threading.  Can you please stop
 doing that?]

The big picture is getting less noisy measurements that have a lot less
unaccounted for latency in them.

Yes, the beauty of it is that it's done as a hardware timestamp.  The
navSpark also can do timestamping, but you need to process it via an
interrupt.  I'm prestty sure the Furuno GPS also can do timestamping, at
least the timing modules, but I don't know any details of those (I might
get one anyway).

No, given that it's an interrupt driven driver that question doesn't
even make sense.
