Action required for upcoming GPS problem with Week Number Roll Over for GPS units that pre-date 2015
We have been made aware of an issue with the compact white GPS units supplied by us between 2003 and early 2015. During this time, two different chipsets were used in Güralp GPS units, both chipsets were manufactured by Trimble Inc.
The latest Trimble Product Bulletin explains that these chipsets will both be affected by a WNRO (Week Number Roll Over) event.
This issue is relevant to Güralp customers using the DM24 and CD24 digitisers or instruments integrated with these digitisers (such as the 3ESPCD, the 6TD and the 40TDE) as they use NMEA.
We ask that all requests for any of the above options are sent direct to our email@example.com email address so that we can monitor uptake.
We ask that all requests for support, or replacement parts/units for this issue are sent through the firstname.lastname@example.org email address so that we can track demand as effectively as possible.
You can read more about the issue in an article on Nature.com here. (External link)
We will keep our guidance note page as up to date as possible based on the information we receive from the manufacturer and the solutions we can offer to overcome the issues. If you would like to subscribe to hear support updates on this subject please email email@example.com
