How to detect GPS week rollover problems on Android

GPS week rollover

GPS accuracy may impact the performance of navigation applications used on these devices.

What happens if I don’t upgrade my device?

For the best experience it is always better to upgrade your device so you don’t experience any service degradation. Your device will still work and voice, text and data will not be affected. GPS dependent applications may be impacted and not work properly.

Will I receive a credit due to my GPS not working?

No. No credits are issued as this is an industry problem not a Verizon problem. Verizon is trying to help you by partnering and enabling you to upgrade your device.

Is my device affected?
