switch ntp for ntpsec (because ?? security, support, logging features, find that accuracy/feature comparison chart again)
use gpsd from git head, armbian/debian package is several versions/features behind
gpsd -r; missing from pkg version, probably a bad idea anyway since the neo6m rtc/batt is likely for fix/ephemeris and gps will send 1969 without sat lock
gpsd -G; not working to bind * instead of localhost, try in newer version -- need this for u-center access remotely from Windows
per page 39 disable SBAS, other timepulse/timing tips
see if 'static' mode available on 6m or only T versions
chronodot ds3231 rtc tcxo with battery for initial time / no fix / no network situations

NanoPi Neo running armbian debian with ntp serial uart GPS gpio PPS from u-blox NEO-6M (GY-NEO6MV2)
Linux nanopineo 4.14.15-sunxi #28 SMP Mon Jan 29 07:24:48 CET 2018 armv7l GNU/Linux
Order "GY-NEO6MV2" GPS module from Aliexpress for $4
Add uart1 and pps-gpio fdt overlays, assign PPS pin
Using a GPIO pin instead of a uart control pin because this
armbian kernel already has CONFIG_PPS_CLIENT_GPIO=m instead
of LDISC and not even sure it would work on a CTS pin anyway.
