Gps difficulties
I got my new gps today (a BU-353S4) and I plugged it in and set it up, and the gps was being used by signalk, however only the time showed up. There was no location data at all. This was the same case when running cgps -s and gpsmon. I left the gps plugged in for quite awhile. I then plugged the new gps into my laptop and after a couple seconds it started working just fine. I then plugged it back into the raspberry pi and it was magically working. This is the same behavior I saw with the ublox gps. So it seems that the gps is not the issue and something is wrong with the raspberry pi/openplotter that is causing this.
Was the gps in the same physical location both times?

Yes, the gps was in the same location.  I even tried to move it and have it directly outside but it did not make a difference with the pi. As soon as I connected it to the laptop it started to work.
