Hello,

Does anyone know whether or not the GPS week number rollover will impact any Android devices (mostly interested in Samsung manufactured tablets).

Thanks!

The rollover issue itself is caused by the fact that GPS systems
count weeks using a ten-bit parameter. This means they start counting
at week zero and reset when they hit week 1,024. The first count (or
³GPS epoch²) started on January 6th, 1980, and the first reset took
place on August 21st, 1999. That means the next one is due April 6th
this year.

recent devices can be updated so it won't be a problem.
