2019 GPS Week Rollover

About 2019 GPS Week Rollover

From The Department of Homeland Security website announced about GPS week number rollover that “GPS uses a week counter that enables receivers to calculate the appropriate date.  That week counter uses 10 bits and needs to be reset every 1,024 weeks—roughly every 20 years.”

On April 6, 2019, the GPS week counter will reset again to zero. 

For more information, please refer The Department of Homeland Security website directly:

Please contact us if your GPS devices which adopted ftech GPS modules which week counter is reset to zero, we will support new firmware and update utility for you.

All ftech’s GPS products in mass production are up-to-date and won’t occur this issue.
