Thanks Gary. I'm having a hard time finding any neo-m8n boards that 
actually have the PPS wired up - tons of them meant for drones, so no 
PPS. Plenty of neo-6m and neo-7m units with PPS though. I have seen some 
writeups where folks wire up the pin by hand, but I'm not so sure I'd be 
steady enough to do that sort of small-scale soldering.
