Re: Nuvi350 survives GPS rollover
The more "modern" GPS units seem to work just fine. The ones in my car (2010) are fine, as is the Garmin eTrex Vista. Kenwood D74 is good too. I had built a GPS attachment for my original Kenwood D7A some years ago, and it gets the time and location right, but I can't find a way to know if the date is right (or for that matter, if it even cares).toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
But I remembered last night that I had an old Garmin GPS-III sitting in a box. Somehow, it still powers up. Left it searching for a signal. This morning I see it got the time and location right, but sadly it's stuck in August 1999. So, at least we know the rollover thing was real.
So, how many GPS units do you have at your home? Including the active cell phones and tablets, I count 10. A possible sign of the times, the number of GPS receivers now exceeds the number of boxes that don't adjust automatically for daylight savings (9).
