I guess it's time for me to finish up that NTP cape for the BeagleBone.
I'm using a Furuno GT-8736 ( http://www.furuno.com/en/
products/gnss-module/GT-8736 )

I built up a prototype about two years ago but... got married very shortly
after that and haven't played with it since.

Is there any interest in something like this?   As with past group buys, I
never charge a penny of profit and sell at cost.   I want to say the brand
new GT-8736 boards are $26 a pop (my cost) from the vendor.

Is there a better board from Furuno for timing applications?
