Interesting, Miroslav.  I was referring to this statement in section 

  "After the initial position fix has been calculated, the PPS signal is 
generated and continues until the unit is powered down."

What exactly "auto-off" mode means is something I couldn't find in the 
technical reference for the 18x.  I would love to think you are right, but 
I am struggling for evidence at the moment.
