API review

Proposer: Chad Rockey

Present at review:


There is still a need to standardize Navigation Satellite time information. This review should resolve how to handle time from these sensors.

Please see previous discussions on this topic:




Time synchronization is the other main use of Nav Sat systems. It is useful to have a common time source where traditional time synchronization (ntp, chrony, etc) is not available. This information is often only used retroactively or sporadically to synchronize time or other information. It should be possible for GPS drivers to output this information in a manner that is standardized and able to be logged.
