What is GPS Week Number Rollover (WNRO)?
There are millions of standalone GPS navigation devices that rely on GPS satellites to provide not only accurate position but also date and time. In 1980, when the GPS system first started to keep track of the time it could only count forward to a maximum of 1024 weeks or about 19.7 years. Once the 1024 weeks has elapsed, the counter would reset to zero (rollover) and continue the count forward. The first rollover occurred in August of 1999 and the second rollover will take place on the 6th of April 2019.

What now?
We are aware of this special occurrence and we’ve made the necessary plans to ensure that we have updates in place if needed to ensure minimal disruption to our customers. Over the past few months, we’ve performed extensive testing to determine if the WNRO will affect our range of products, both current and legacy. These tests showed that the majority of Mio GPS devices are not affected by the WNRO and will work without an update.

Will my Mio GPS device work without an update?
If your device is one which is affected by the WNRO, it will still work without an update but you will notice that the time and date and time information is incorrect. The GPS signal and positioning accuracy will not be affected and so you can still use your device as normal.
