Due To The Left Biased Media Fixation With Trying To Unseat President Trump You Probably Haven't Heard About Something Important Like This!
On April 6th, 2019 a GPS Week Number rollover will occur and it may impact receivers that are not manufactured in compliance with IS-GPS-200 specifications.
The GPS Week Number count began at approximately midnight on the evening of Jan. 5, 1980/morning of Jan. 6, 1980. Since that time, the count has been incremented by 1 each week and years later broadcast as part of the GPS message. One of the GPS week number fields in the legacy navigation message counts from zero to 1023 weeks. At the completion of every 1024 GPS weeks the field rolls from 1023 to zero and starts counting again. The first occurrence was on the evening of Aug. 21, 1999 and the message field rolled to zero at midnight GPS Time. The next similar GPS Week Number rollover occurs on April 6, 2019.
It is expected that Your navigation device will continue
to navigate, but will not be able to show the correct time
and estimated time of arrival (ETA).
It is advised that any users who have unanticipated operating
issues contact their the Manufacturer of Their respective devices
for assistance to troubleshoot the issues.
Well, I happen to have a few devices, it is expected one device
will be rendered obsolete and I'm checking on another.
But here's one to be really concerned about, My few year old vehicle has built GPS and while most likely it meets the IS-GPS-200 specifications I wanted to be sure so I contacted the manufacturer of My vehicle and to My surprise they didn't know WTF I was talking about and didn't seem too motivated to even look into it.
So like other I guess I will find out soon enough!
