GPS Week Number Rollover Bug - Workaround for GLOG 760 (and others)

The Transystem GLOG 760 Logger is affected by the GPS Week Rollover Bug for recordings in memory.  The values read in real time from the virtual serial port over USB are correct.

As a result BT747 was reporting no recordings in the log file as the reported date was in 1999 for recent recordings.

This was changed in BT747 V2.2.1 .  This version accepts dates starting from 1980 and - more importantly - it adds 1024 weeks to any date before 1/1/2009.

New AGPS URL

A new version of BT747 was released integrating a new AGPS download location.

The application has also been signed with a new signature, https://soft.bt747.org has been updated with these signatures and the jnlp files have been updated to use https.

BT747 - New code signatures

The code signing key used for BT747 had to be upgraded to SHA-256.

Unfortunately that also revoked the old key and apparently the timestamping was not properly done with the previous signatures.  So the java laucher complains that the certificate is revoked.

All files have been resigned and republished.

You may need to launch:

javaws -viewer

[on windows : "Windows Key + R" to access the execute popup where you can enter this].


Installing the Desktop Version of "MTK Data Logger Control BT747"

IMPORTANT: BT747 is updated with a CERTIFICATE to comply with JAVA 7 (1.7.0_51) security.
(I bought a trusted certificate (provided by a trusted authority) for about $300.  Received it on Jan. 17, 2014.
Thank you (!) to the users that donated a bit (thanks!) to partially cover the cost of the certificate.
 If every person using BT747 would donate $1 the cost would be covered in about two weeks (luckyly for you, I did not wait to cover the cost).
