    Check your GPS for date/time accuracy after the WNRO yesterday

    The world-wide GPS system once every 20 years Week Number Roll Over happened last night.

    Per the good folks at Garmin:

    My portable TomTom car unit also needs a software update:

    Thanks for the reminder. Just came in from testing my old approach certified GX60 and my old Garmin 396. Both are working as they were on the last flight.

    for there you have been,
    and there you will always long to return.

    I just set my 396 on the back of the tractor outside the shop & turned it on. The internal battery has been dead for ages but it "found itself" and had the correct date & time within a couple minutes.
