GPS Week number rollover


Well-Known Member
Looks like the second Y2K bug may be coming this weekend. The GPS system must keep track of time, and this is done by counting weeks. Apparently there is a max of 1024 so the system will rollover to 0 on April 6th 2019. It is said that if you have a fairly new system then it will take care of itself but if you have an older one it's firmware may need an update. I have heard nothing about this until today and have no idea if the systems we use will be effected or not.

This may make the San Felipe race this weekend quite the adventure for some.

I hope PCI and Rugged are aware of the possible issue.
