GPS Rollover Issue


Some customers have reported an issue with their GPS equipped telescopes getting a GPS fix but reporting an incorrect year.  This is a direct result of the GPS week number rollover issue that occurred globally on April 6, 2019. Please note not all GPS telescopes are affected by this issue.

For those affected by the GPS rollover issue, new telescope firmware can be downloaded and installed into the telescope using the latest Meade AutoStar Updater Program version 6.1.

  • Download AutoStar version 6.1 here.
