Ultimate GPS firmware question

by jperch on Fri Feb 15, 2019 9:51 am

A coworker of mine pointed me to this article:
https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/02/1 ... poch_ends/]

I was wondering if anyone at Adafruit knows which version of the firmware (if any) will continue to work after the week number rollover epoch happens?

Thanks,
Joe

Hi, have there been any updates on this? I have multiple of these gps units bought over the years with all different firmware versions. Will they be okay when the rollover happens? If not, is there a way to update the firmware?

Awesome! Should that include all Adafruit Ultimate GPS V3? I have some with older firmware installed into systems that would be hard to upgrade.
