I checked pps from MSF rx with digital meter and that showed a
signal but not very well. That has a 50ms pulse so 100ms from
Garmin should be as easy to spot. Analogue meters I have around
would give a much better indication.
Another alternative is a transistor + three resistors and
LED. A pot could be used for R2 to confirm voltage swing
of PPS output.
+5V -- R3 --- LED ---+
pps --- R1 ---+--- b
