		<h3>Forum Graphic GPS Dating station</h3>
		<p>Address: 127.127.37.<i>u</i><br>
			Reference ID: <tt>GPS</tt><br>
			Driver ID: <tt>GPS</tt><br>
			Parallel Port: <tt>/dev/fgclock<i>u</i></tt></p>
		<p>This driver supports the Forum Graphic GPS Dating station sold by <a href="">EMR company</a>.</p>
		<p>Unfortunately sometime FG GPS start continues reporting of the same date. The only way to fix this problem is GPS power cycling and ntpd restart after GPS power-up.</p>
		<p>After Jan,10 2000 my FG GPS unit start send a wrong answer after 10:00am till 11:00am. It repeat hour value in result string twice. I wroite a small code to avoid such problem. Unfortunately I have no second FG GPS unit to evaluate this problem. Please let me know if your GPS has no problems after Y2K.</p>
