““GPS receivers obtain time from the GPS constellation using a 10-bit week number which counts weeks from zero to 1023 and then returns to zero rather than incrementing to 1024. This may cause some receivers to report a date 1024 weeks (19.6 years) in the past when the week number is zero. This means that on 6 April 2019, some GPS receivers may report the date as 22 August 1999. In order to mitigate this issue, GPS manufacturers provide software updates to ensure the zero week is correctly interpreted.”

Do Volvo’s need an update?

How bored are you? Are you really worrying about a problems that has not happened, will likely not happen, if it happens it likely won't affect your car, and at worst it will break a navigation system that does not work anyhow? Were you alive in 2000, when the world panicked about Y2k? Remember what happened? Exactly...

My suggestion? You should sell the car. Just in case. You can always buy it back if the bug doesn't materialize.
