Kind friends

I have only just discovered that every GPS device to which I've immediate access (Several autopilot units, asset tracking 'tags', Garmin 'nag-boxes' and even an antediluvian 'Magellan Colortrak') insist that today's date is:
12 February 1999:confused:o_O -- Oddly enough, they rapidly acquire all 'visible' (i.e. above the horizon) satellites and otherwise function properly (with the exception of astronomical almanac data {i.e. sun position, moon phase, position}), of course...

Much as I'd like to - seems I'm 7,168 days late to the party:(

But Seriously - Any ideas?

Donning my foil hat:eek:
