Both my NaviSys stick (uBlox6) and puck (uBlox8) show ±1ms jitter over
USB on the raspi.  I plan to pull out the PPS from the puck some time
now that I can use a second PPS.

The NavSpark Freebie had ±10ms on my PC, but I don't really know how
well the PL2303 driver it was using works (for starters, I don't think
anything changed with setting the low_latency option on the interface).
I might test the interface from the Freebie again on a rasPi later on,
but I don't think it'll come out any better.

With PPS over virtual serial I get around ±40µs in total, although
there's a noticeable double distribution.  I don't have enough data yet
to see what's really going on, but it looks like the larger cluster
shows around 10µs width over the last hour.

Huh?  the HP is an RTK receiver so you'd need a reference station to
make use of that feature set.  The timing receiver is the NS-T and yes,
if it cold starts and needs to pull the Almanach and do a auto-survey
it'll be busy for a while.
