Left off the biggest and best source of information.  read the source
code files for the GPS reference clock drivers that comes with NTP.
If there is no ref clock driver you can't use the GPS.   But there are
liley drivers for every GPS, but do check.

How to program the GPS?  The NTP ref clock driver will read the config
file and send the commands

You did not see "timing" on the data sheet because it was not a timing
GPS.   Here is the data sheet for the current in-production version of
the Oncore (it sells for about $60)
