New GPS epoch

2 Likes

I’ve got a random assortment of GPS’s, but so far, I’ve only tested two.

First is a Magellan Meridian - (2004 firmware) (hand held) that seemed to lock ok.

Second is a headless USB engine by Navsync CW-19.
Navsync seem to have propagated a bug through most of their models that they will not lock during Week 0 of the new epoch. Sure enough, mine sees the satellites, but doesn’t lock.
There is new firmware available for some Navsync devices, but not for this one. I’m hoping it’ll come back to life next week.

We are now in Week 1 and Navsync CW19 has just managed to get a position lock, so has become a useful engine again.

Has anyone else seen their GPS “come good”?
