Might want to doublecheck your facts. GPS knows about the time difference, which isn't 12 seconds either btw, it is 19. The complete time message, which includes the correct amount, is broadcast every 12.5 minutes, so its possible that when you cold boot a gps, it will be off some amount of time before that is received. (12 seconds is common for lots of GPS engines, they have built in correct for the first 7 seconds of correction, but need the updated time message after connection to get the rest of the update)
