Same here even though the nav V was set to "auto time". Manual jobbie did it.

Yes, mine currently shows 2 Apr 2000. I don’t think it affects the nav function of the unit but will follow the topic in the event of a fix from Garmin.

That's what my Nav 6 did too.  I had the Nav 5 before that and don't remember ever having to adjust the time so it must grab that info once it has found satellites.  I might be wrong, but I think the bike's clock feeds from that too?

This is distinctly odd. A GPS needs a very precise time in order to work out where it is. It detects the time lags from the various satellites to work out how far it is from each one. So even an error of one second would cause a miscalculation of many miles. An error of 19 years would put you way beyond Proxima Centauri!

It is certainly bl**dy annoying that the time is indeed correct (apart from GMT/BST issue) but the date is wrong. The software has counted 1024 weeks from some fixed datum and rolled back to week 0 (or 1) to calculate date.

If you phone Garmin's support and tell them the date is out they will put you on the mailing list for when a update is available, as for the time untick auto box and manual set for the time being

Much, much easier to do on their website. No holding, no computer voices. 

Go to https://support.garmin.com/en-US/?productID=118565&tab=topics.   Enter your info and you are on the list for notification.

Think that is just a holding comment, I would be surprised if they mail you if a fix is ready. I phoned up and spoke to someone, they said they were aware of the problem, they didn't ask me for any details or the serial number of the Nav, so how will they know to mail me? There are 1000's now with this issue all over Europe and the US. Some in the US have had their Vs replaced, which kind of indicates its not a software fix, hope I'm wrong on that one, because if its hardware we will be stuffed in the UK. Luckily the V I have is off another bike and my main Nav is a VI which is fine.

Thanks for this. Just done mine and it works! After the update and restart it needed to connect with a satellite to correct the time. Cheers.

Thanks for that. It hadn't connected with a satellite.
All sorted now

I don't have the problem but do have friends that do!  I thought you got new software on the device too?  Either way I see Garmin Express 6.19.4.0 has been released today so might be worth a re-try!  Hope that helps, Peter

I’ve had the Y2K error, connected to Garmin Express and it had a little flag stating an update was available for the Nav5. Installed to Nav, restarted, connected to Satellites and it’s all good. Even the sunrise/sunset backlight change is back 👍
