Some GPS boxes turn off the PPS signal when they don't have enough good satellites.

For those, a PIC works well as a LED driver:  on solid when PPS is flapping, blinking when PPS is not changing, off when there is no power.

Obviously you can use your favorite tiny CPU.  I happened to have a PIC programmer handy.
