When is/was the GPS roll-over?

I have an old Garmin GPS in the cockpit and fired it up earlier in the day, and it seemed to work fine.
Does anyone know exactly when the GPS roll-over took/takes place.

It was around 10.00 UTC today on the 6th when I checked.

Its nothing to worry about. If you have a really old GPS that hasnt been updated in a while it may be affected. Otherwise, a non-event. I read an excellent article about it today. Check it out here: https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/201...t-of-zero-day/
