Appendix

What is GPS week rollover issue?

The Week Rollover Problem is a known issue caused by the way that GPS used to handle the week element of the data that forms an essential part of the navigation signal. GPS used a 10 bit field to encode the week number in each GPS time message, which means that a maximum of 1,024 weeks (19.7 years), could be handled. Each of these periods is known in GPS terms as an “epoch”.

At the end of each epoch of 1,024 weeks, the receiver resets the week number to zero and starts counting again.

 

What will happen after GPS week rolls over?

It won’t affect the receiver’s ability to navigate and/or calculate precise time from the day level down to the microsecond level. But it will create week, month and year timestamps that are wildly wrong, which could seriously impact any systems and applications that rely on GPS data at that level.

 

Solutions for GPS week rolls over.

It is no need to do further actions for the customers who do not use the timestamp from GPS. 

For the customers who use the timestamp from GPS. The following solutions are recommended:

1.Customers can add a 1024-weeks offset to the server or application when get the wrong date.

2.Customers can use AT command to fix the issue in Some FW versions.

3.Update to the new firmware.
