Description

The default minpoll and maxpoll for GPS and PPS in /etc/inc/system.inc is set to 4. These should both be set to 3. This will reduce the interval from 16s to 8s.

The documentation for ntpd says the minimum value is 4. Have you tried 3?

Though this value should probably be adjustable at least, I can add fields with the current values to the main settings and GPS/PPS tabs.

If we determine the lower values do work then it's just a matter of adjusting the defaults once that's done.

The GUI part of this is I mentioned is in #6787

This can remain open to investigate whether or not values less than 4 are possible/viable.
