Re: From Raymarine Time change on GPS satellite constellation worldwide


 

The world is not ending as forums like Cruiser's Forum would lead you to believe.

I believe that it will only affect GPSs that were manufactured before the last rollover. AND, it will only affect the time/year on the screen of the GPS.

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?
