The NMEA driver is a bit strange. It processes two sources of time.
One is the text on the serial port. The other is the PPS signal.
I think it has to get close enough on the text mode before the PPS
processing kicks in.
How about turning off the PPS fudge flag so you know you are
using the text mode. Then watch it for a while and add a
fudge time2 to get it reasonably close. When that works,
turn the PPS back on.
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's. I hate spam.
