My GPS Clock is up and running

With the help of WDT, My GPS Clock is now running nicely. I don't know its exact accuracy. After comparing my GPS Clock time with SymmTime time, I can only say that my clock is very accurate. I use PIC16F877A to control the clock.

GPS Clock with LCD Display
I use PPS (Pulse Per Second) to drive my clock so ,theroticaly , the clock should be very accurate. The PPS accuracy from the Lassen iQ GPS module is about 50ns (when position fixes or SV>2).GPS Module
Next step, I will add sound of the second 'Tick' for accurately setting my watches. Also, I think that telling time with 7-Segment display should be more accurate than the LCD.

I recently completed a project of a GPS clock using the old and cheap Motorola GT+ gps receiver, which is working nicely with a 7 segment display and a vehicular active antenna. However, since it's been used indoors, satellite locking is a constant problem, and sometimes it'll stay one or two hours without tracking any satellites at all. Perhaps I should consider installing the antenna outdoors, but really want to avoid the complications. I was wondering if the CW25 receiver requires a sensitive antenna and whether it has to be of the active or the passive type. Would you please include more details about your project? I believe it could be very helpful to many of us.

Thank you,
