Because that's the time that it cold starts with, and will keep reporting it 
until it gets the correct time from a satellite. If you feed it a time with 
an AID-INI message then it'll report that time until it gets the correct one 
from a satellite. The correct time is one of the first things it picks up, so 
it will appear even before it has a location fix.
