Leica Viva GS Series – SmartWorx and Captivate
Preparing for Leap Second 2016
With the defined SW and ME FW version (6.04 for GS10, GS14, GS15, GS16 and GS25; 6.402 for GS08, GS12 and GS08plus; 1.13(46) for GS05 and GS06), the tracking behavior for GPS, Galileo and BeiDou of all Leica Geosystems GS 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 GS receiver is used after the leap second switch, the receiver should have no trouble tracking GLONASS signals. If there are nevertheless problems tracking GLONASS satellites, restart the receiver.
