to the last news in 2018!
As the year is turning to an end we would
like take the opportunity to wish all our partners a happy and relaxing
holiday season. We have had a great year, and we are excited to look
into 2019, where we have some real game changers in the pipeline!
...Read on - there is still juice left in 2018!
many years we have had support for the Garmin
Fleet Management Interface (FMI) and today, in the latest
firmware and RTCU IDE, this support
is greatly enhanced with many new features, such as custom forms,
avoidance areas, speed limit alerts, sensors display,
and a lot more!
Please take a look at the new datasheet for the
Garmin Fleet Management Interface
We also have the pleasure of introducing the new
Garmin Dezl 780 that
fully supports all the new features.
is now supported on the RTCU MX2 turbo
With GALILEO, the powerful GNSS receiver on the
RTCU MX2 turbo now supports a total of four satellite
networks: NAVSTAR (GPS),
GLONASS, and QZSS.
Multiple constellations are tracked and used simultaneously to obtain the
most accurate positioning on the market. No changes to the application
software are required to take advantage of
turbo with GALILEO
support is shipping now!
As some of our partners have noticed, an important event is about to
happen on April 6, 2019 when the GPS Week Number Rollover
This event may cause problems depending on how the GPS chipset handles
the 10-bit field that represents the week number in each GPS time
message. A maximum of 1024 weeks can be handled, and this period is
called an epoch. At the end of each epoch, the receiver resets the week
number to zero and starts counting again. The current epoch started on 1
August 1999. The next GPS rollover is therefore on April 6, 2019,
when the receiver will revert to week number zero and start counting up
to 1023 again.
For more information, please refer to the official statement from US
To ensure a smooth GPS Week Number Rollover event, with no
unpleasant surprises, we have acquired a full-featured GNNS Simulator,
allowing us to play this event on all device types we have ever manufactured.
The good news is that ALL RTCU devices are ready for the GPS Week
Number Rollover event - except the RTCU M10 series
that we cannot guarantee will function correctly.
The RTCU M10 series was discontinued almost 15 years ago, so
it is unknown how many are still in service.
Finally, we have the pleasure of announcing the following new
