Is the problem that they don't get an almanac, or that they get the wrong
There was a week rollover in one of the main GPS fields several/many years
ago. That ws the first one since GPS started. It made some units give crazy
answers. (I think they were time only, position was OK.)
I think you could get around that with some post-processing. I don't
remember anybody doing that. Some units got new firmware.
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's. I hate spam.
