Confirmed. Two nexus 7's and a Huawei mobile phone all have same issue, wrong date\time being recorded by Wigle. I'm quite shocked tbh, can't seem to find any information about this issue even though 3 of my devices encounter it.. accuracy does not seem to be affected [more than usual anyway] when I go out to an area and plot positions on the map, they're where I expect them to be..
I'm not clever enough to modify the android app to use the system time instead of time from GPS, but if 3 out of 4 of my devices are recording the wrong time surely I can't be that unlucky.. this surely is effecting others too..?, maybe they aren't aware.. it's not immediately obvious anything is going wrong unless you look at the data in detail.. any chance of an app update to add the option to calculate epoch time from system time instead?
For now, I've learnt how to make up a value for a certain date.. I will have to manually "fix" 3 databases after each run.. bit of a P.I.T.A to be honest.. any help appreciated.
Edit: just thought.. why not compare the two times GPS/System.. and if they're massively different.. there's some sort of issue.. let the user know there's a problem and maybe ask the user which, if any are correct and use those values for the session..?
Edit2: Aaah, I think I may have found a potential explanation: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/02/1 ... poch_ends/
I know the nexus are old but I only got them recently since they were cheap and I'm fully aware of what Google is up to with Pie regarding wifi scanning so they won't be getting any money off me right now.. he he
Edit3: I'm starting to get over my head here but further reading suggests 19.7 years [1,024 weeks] is a key 'date' with this gps update malarky .. 19.7 years ago it was 1999 [and yeah, was a great time for parties, he he].. we have a correlation I believe.. So definitely seems to be because I'm using an older device.. but maybe it's just me getting old but I prefer using devices from before the big companies started going overboard with restrictions, lol
So, do you think there's any chance of a work-around for this? If I've understood it right, It's always going to be 19.7 years [1,024 weeks] out [until the next time they change it anyways, he he]
Fully appreciate this is not a bug with Wigle now, so feel free to move topic elsewhere. Seems to be a big 'thing' though.. wondering how many others are effected.. curious as to how many other uploads [from other users] have same issue..? [my recent uploads I did will be skewed as I always send you the raw data].. I'm guessing since 1999 was mentioned and you didn't instantly pick up on it - you didn't know..?[which is totally understandable given it's only a recent event and only effects "older" devices and nobody would know unless they looked really close] in which case I appreciate you might be a little busy now
