You can check  if your receiver send s correct time data with following 

-  Start loadstone and connect with the receiver as usual.

- Wait unti you get a satellite fix.

- Start nmea logging, log for few seconds.

- close the log and Loadstone

Look the log file, for example downloading it into your computer or with 
some file viewer in the phone.  Look for lines that begin with '$GPGGA'.
  Just after the keyword there should be  the UTC time on HHMMSS format.

You can also look for '$GPRMC' lines. Here again the second field it the 
utc time and eigth filed is the date in DDMMYY  format.
