Does anyone have a handy GPS Second -> Date/Time converter script?

I am attempting to convert raw logs from an industrial receiver by
converting to 'unicvs' (GPSBabel format) and then to GPX transforming
Waypoints to Tracks.

The result tracks show up in JOSM but are rejected by OSM website as they
don't have a time stamp.

Example 'BESTPOS' log:
--
#BESTPOSA,COM1,0,65.0,FINESTEERING,1518,584656.000,00040000,6145,3642;SOL_COMPUTED,WAAS,49.66167756437,-114.59122054052,1434.1903,-14.8000,WGS84,6.1673,2.6
840,9.4065,"135",4.000,0.000,12,4,0,0,0,2,0,1*9c519c8e
...
--

Example 'unicvs' log (where name is actually GPS seconds):
--
lat,long,alt,name
49.66167756437,-114.59122054052,1434.1903,584656.000
...

I am using this industrial receiver my handheld does not cope with tree
cover in these Cross Country ski trails, receiver does not natively log
NMEA (could do with external PC/Laptop).

Cheers,
Simon.

PS. The receiver in question is this one:

  Found no good GPX points in the input data. At least 75% of the
trackpoints lacked a <time> tag.
