This is an older post but for reference:

I am using the generic NMEA driver with the HAB-GPSPI board and then you won't see it:

#generic NMEA driver
server mode 17 prefer
fudge flag1 1 time2 0.400

Be sure to add this file:

#sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/80-gps-to-ntp.rules

with this content:

# Change MODE of ttyAMA0 so it is readable by NTP and provide a symlink to
# /dev/gps0
KERNEL=="ttyAMA0", SUBSYSTEM=="tty", DRIVER=="", SYMLINK+="gps0", MODE="0666"
# Symlink /dev/pps0 to /dev/gpspps0
KERNEL=="pps0", SUBSYSTEM=="pps", DRIVER=="", SYMLINK+="gpspps0", MODE="0666"
