[time-freq] motorola oncore not locking to the 1 pps

Someone else will probably give you a better answer (hopefully).
I think the answer is going to in part depend on which model oncore you have.
I recall there is both a setable (and you have to write it out to gps to take effect) bit
controlling 1pps output. As well as later models having a setting for RAIM(?) minimum 
quality required before 1pps functions.

Sorry for such vague answers, it's been a while since doodling with the oncores.

  I have a motorola oncore GPS receiver which I am trying to get working 
  with a reflock version one.
  I am sure that the reflock circuit is working. But the unit will not 
  lock to the 1pps for an unknown reason. Well not completely unknown......

  Checking the GPS receiver with the winoncore software shows satellites 
  and nmea data on the screen. But only when switched to the NMEA 
  protocol. Nothing in the motorola protocol. Checking the options / 
  timing  button it shows the 1PPS being always switched "off" Problem is 
  that I am not able to switch it on. It will return immediately to the 
  "off" status when clicking the options / timing button.

  Is this the case of a partly broken GPS receiver? Or am I doing 
  something (terrible stupid) wrong?

  Looking forward in hearing your opinion.

  Have a nice weekend!

  Kind regards,
