TomTom issues leap-year GPS bug fix

Portable navigator device maker TomTom has issued an over-the-air software fix for its so-called leap-year GPS issue. The Go Live and many other units were affected, and haven't been able to find their location since March 31. Users were met with a grey screen or poor signal message instead.

The software that came from a third-party supplier was to blame, an apologetic TomTom revealed. Users in Australia, Denmark, the UK, and Switzerland were the first to be affected by the issue.

The full list of affected TomTom GPS units includes the Start 20/25, Via 110/120/125, the Via Live 120/125, the Go Live 820/825, Go Live 1000/1005/1005 World, Blue & Me TomTom 2, and TomTom Connect. [via SlashGear]
