Re: GPS pi4 incorrect date

Thanks topguy no I didn't notice the pattern! In my sleep deprived state I thought birth dates were 30th Jan! I'll have another look at the raw nmea data as you suggest. Still makes no sense to me why the discrepancy between pi3 and pi4 though! Dougie yes I'm outside, yes the GPS works fine on pi3 r...

Any other ideas?

I'll check which version of Rasabian is running on each when I get home. Both have been connected to the internet recently but have...

Re: GPS pi4 incorrect date

The GPS is the same physical usb device. I plug it into the pi3, boot and check gpsmon all ok. Then switch to pi4, remove usb from pi3 and connect to pi4 boot and wrong date is displayed in gpsmon. I think all the settings/ config files are the same (at least I've made the same changes). I'll look a...

GPS pi4 incorrect date

Hi all. First time post from novice user. I've installed gspd and chrony on a pi4 with the aim of syncing date, time and location for astronony. I ran the same process on pi3 b+ all works fine. But on the pi4 gpsmon reads date of 2000-01-23T08:04 and chrony syncs the pi date and time to that date. A...
