What is happening: 

A GPS week rollover will occur at the end of the GPS day on April 6, 2019. Current equipment will not be effected.

Survey Instruments affected:

If you are running the Trimble R10, R8, R8S, R7 and R6, you will not have issues. If you are running 5800s or 5700s or later gear, with software that pre-dates 2.32, you will need to upgrade. All Trimble receivers with firmware version ≥2.32 will continue to operate normally following the rollover. See chart at the bottom of the page.

MGIS Instruments affected:

All MGIS receivers will continue to operate normally following the rolloever, although some very early receivers may beed a firmware update. See below at the bottom of the page.

The Solution:

If you are not currently up-to-date with your firmware coverage, you will need to purchase a Firmware Protection Plan. Protection plan pricing is available by calling customer service at 877-309-4099.
