Talked to a Furuno Tech at Camas.
They are 99.99% positive that after the GPS Rollover, the GPS will provide correct positioning but the date will be wrong.
They recommend a Factory Reset via Settings Menu for most devices. Some will reset after the power cord is unplugged for a minute and plugged back in.
There are no software updates or patches.
The Rollove will affect plotters and GPS equipped VHF radios.
On PC chartplotters, the date is provided by Windows so will remain correct.
The rollover is similar to Y2K.
