Default Re: Read GPS TimeStamp

It appears that you are expecting the time of the fix to be derived from the GPS data. This is not an unreasonable expectation and most commercial GPS devices do this. I have not been able to locate anything specification for either the BlackBerry or NMEA that specifies this as required. BlackBerry smartphones are able to synchronize time with the cellphone network which, if proprly maintained, would be much more accurate than obtaining the time from a GPS chip that is not designed to provide time synchronization. If your requirement is to synchronized time with the GPS system then you should be looking at devices that are certified for that function.
My other Blackberry is a PlayBook.
