GPS Service Outages & Status Reports

NOTE: On October 24, 2021, a bug in older versions of the Network Timing Protocol Daemon (NTPD) and GPS Daemon (GPSD) software used in many computer systems may trigger the system date to roll back to sometime in March 2002. While this is not a problem with GPS, it has the potential to cause significant impact. All network operators are encouraged to verify they are utilizing the most recent version 3.23.1 of GPSD/NTPD software (released September 21, 2021) and report any problems to the Navigation Center watch by phone 703-313-5900 or by email at TIS-PF-NISWS@uscg.mil Pin on map For help with wrong/missing addresses, bad directions, and other mapping errors in GPS devices, please visit our page on Address, Route, & Map Problems.
