“GPS Rollover on 20th June 2021”
15 February 2021
We would like to inform valued customers and users of FURUNO GPS marine products of the GPS week number rollover occurring on 20th June 2021.
This happens because the GPS system calculates time by counting to 1023 weeks, after which, the count resets to zero. This is called the “GPS Week Number Rollover”. Subsequent erroneous data information on the GPS receiver clock may result in position instability, causing position errors, including failure of the GPS position acquisition etc.
