FONA 3G date format

by bobvlas on Wed Nov 11, 2020 8:05 am

NMEA RMC message should deliver a date in 'ddmmyy' format. On November 10th, 2020 it returned '270301'. On the 11th it returned '280301'. What is the logic?

I recall reading about a date issue with the FONA 3G (or SIM5320 chip):

Just now checked the link and it's still good.

However, if it still won't load for you just put the below into google, it will be the first link:

OK, found it. Didn't recognize 'roll over' as a term related to date conversion. Now I have to find out how to do the proper conversion in Python.

Many Thanks!!
