I have a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ with Raspberrypi add-on GPS module based NEO-6. I configured the device to act as NTP server but the NTP server won't work. When I use ppstest command, I get the following error:

trying PPS source "/dev/pps0"
found PPS source "/dev/pps0"
ok, found 1 source(s), now start fetching data...
time_pps_fetch() error -1 (Connection timed out)
time_pps_fetch() error -1 (Connection timed out)
time_pps_fetch() error -1 (Connection timed out)
time_pps_fetch() error -1 (Connection timed out)
time_pps_fetch() error -1 (Connection timed out)

GPS data is well received. Below are the things I set up. Should I add something else? did i do something wrong?

/boot/cmdline.txt is as follow:

dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=ttyUSB0 root=PARTUUID=3d93e7aa-02 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline fsck.repair=yes rootwait quiet splash plymouth.ignore-serial-consoles consoleblank=0

/boot/config.txt I added the following lines:

dtoverlay=pi3-mini uart-bt

/etc/default/gpsd is as follow:

    # Default settings for the gpsd init script and the hotplug wrapper.

# Start the gpsd daemon automatically at boot time

# Use USB hotplugging to add new USB devices automatically to the daemon

# Devices gpsd should collect to at boot time.
# They need to be read/writeable, either by user gpsd or the group dialout.
DEVICES="/dev/ttyUSB0 /dev/pps0"

# Other options you want to pass to gpsd

/etc/modules is as follow:

# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
# This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded
# at boot time, one per line. Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.


dmesg | grep pps show as follow:
