Mitigation 

If you have installed the GPS roll-over patch, you may disable assisted GPS (GPS XTRA) in order to mitigate any potential issue with data usage. This will still allow GPS to work, but it may take a longer time to get an initial GPS location. After initial GPS location, the device will obtain location using GPS with no delay:

  • Uncheck GPS XTRA under Settings > Location

If you have NOT installed the GPS roll-over patch, and are experiencing GPS roll-over related issues,  this can be mitigated within the application by adding 1024 weeks to the date given by GPS if the date is earlier than November 3rd, 2019.

Updated Release

Zebra is working to develop new patches to address the potential issue.  Updates will be posted to the TC55 Operating System pages as they are released.
