    I recently had an email from TomTom telling me that because of this rollover (?) my old TomTom One with continue to navigate but probably wont give estimated time of travel. Seems to be working this morning, will have to wait and see.

    My GPS12 is OK so far. Returns the correct date and time.

    My old Magellan 300 gives todays date as 21 Aug 99 ! Other than that, it seems to be working fine.
    I wonder, though, will it still survive when it reaches December 31 or will the millennium bug finally bite? ☺

    My Magellan 2000XL also gives 21 Aug 99, but everything else is OK.

    Likewise my Garmin 75 from 1993. I'm surprised that the time is correct even though the date is out.

    Apart from rollover, for the last half hour it has only been able to find three satellites (15, 19, 24).

    My Raymarine RC631 stopped getting fixes about a week ago, this morning it's working again, took a while to settle but has the correct date....coincidence?

    My old Garmin GPS45 is still lost in time, though not in space.
