Hi,

The original GPS clock started on 6 January 1980 and rolls over every 1024 weeks.  The next roll over is on 6 April 2019.

Subject: [AmelYachtOwners] Time change on GPS satellite constellation worldwide

 

I heard that every 20 years the time is adjusted in the GPS satellite constellation.

I also heard that the adjustment will occur in April this year and might affect our GPS units and navigation items.

Has anyone else heard about this?
