Garmin GPS Week Number Rollover Statement

What is the GPS Week Number Rollover (WNRO)?

The GPS system is world renowned for its ability to provide accurate and reliable positioning and timing information worldwide. The GPS satellites transmit to users the date and time accurate to nanoseconds. However, back in 1980, when the GPS system first began to keep track of time, the date and time was represented by a counter that could only count forward to a maximum of 1024 weeks, or about 19.7 years. After 1024 weeks had elapsed, this counter “rolled over” to zero, and GPS time started counting forward again. This first rollover occurred in August of 1999. The second rollover will occur on April 6, 2019.

Yep, We lost an unmanned aircraft in 1999 when we switched to a backup transmitter and lost time synch. That is when we first realized there was an issue.
On the work front we depend alot on GPS to monitor our fleets of trucks...hope it wont be serious:frown2:
