I had the same problem with the new shr-unstable image. I got me some
assist data from u-blox and fed them into /dev/ttySAC1. It still took
some time, then it reported 3 satellites and about a minute later, it
showed the right gps time. Since then, it always shows the correct gps
time shortly after starting tangogps.
