NMEA GPS update very slow

To get precise GPS location, I am using Trimble MPS865 module that is connected to the pixhawk using serial3 port with baud rate of 115200. The trimble reciever as well as the pixhawk serial port are configured with the same baudrate and the GPS_RATE_MS is also set at 200 which is 5Hz.
The problem i am facing is that the GPS data is only being updated once every 10 secs.

The Trimble MPS865 is capable of publishing data in any format as well as any rate. Please help in in getting the GPS position update continuously.

As an update, I was able to solve this issue. I had to send the GPS data in NMEA GGA, VTG and RMC format at 5Hz to solve this issue.
