Anyone else having issues with the date & time on their Goldwing? 4/5 months ago I noticed the time was wrong, tried adjusting the time and noticed the date was October 1999!! If you try adjusting the time/date they both revert back to October 1999…
I have 2012 C
This issue is affecting lots of older model GPS units. The Navi unit in the Goldwing is an older unit made for Honda by Garmin.
Heres what Garmin say about it –
GPS 15 Date is Incorrect
We’ve identified an issue with this product that causes the date to be wrong after the GPS Rollover on April 6th, 2019. However, all functions not dependent on date and/or time will continue to work normally. Due to the age of the device we have determined we will not fix this issue.
What does that mean for my Garmin?
o The date determined by the GPS will be wrong
o Position, velocity, navigation, and all other functionality not dependent on date and/or time will continue to work normally
What is GPS Week Rollover?
The GPS satellite system communicates the date via a week number that is limited to 1024 weeks (about 20 years). On April 6th, 2019 the week numbers broadcast by the satellites will “rollover” to zero. If GPS receivers don’t account for this rollover in their software, it will calculate the wrong date and/or time.”
