Leica iCON

Preparing for Leap Second 2016

iCon Detail
Leica iCON

With the defined SW and ME FW version (3.0.4 for iCON gps 60 and iCON gps 80), the tracking behavior for GPS, Galileo and BeiDou of all Leica iCON receivers will not be affected over the leap second change. GLONASS tracking will lose lock briefly and recover a few seconds later.

If a Leica iCON receiver is used after the leap second switch, the receiver will have trouble tracking GLONASS signals until a new almanac is downloaded, which can take up to a few minutes. A Reset Almanac will resolve the problem faster and enable users to track GLONASS satellites again.

In case of tracking issues, Settings > System Configuration > Reset options > Reset Almanac on the receiver to clear almanacs and track GPS only until a new almanac has been received.
