The USB version does not speak NMEA.  There is no support for
it in ntpd.

I have a driver.  It seems to work OK on Linux.  Timing
from the old non-X GPS 18 USB was much better than the new 18x
versions.  I'll get some graphs up when I get my act together.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
