You mentioned that you wanted to set the time on your Garmin GPS. Since you did not include the exact model number of your unit I cannot give you the specific instructions. Although at the link below you can select your model number from a list then download the manual and there you will see how to set the time. If you are using a NUVI it is under mobile electronics then automotive

    Hi,
    Thanks for updates.


    To change time settings:
    - Goto main menu.
      Settings> General > Time


    - Select a time format, time zone.




    Once you do that, when the GPS is on, it will automatically set the time as per the zone you have mentioned.




    :)


    p.s. for more, check the manual

The time on my Garmin 120 gps on my boat is 30 min wrong


Seems to me like a system time zone setting adding/subtracting 30 mins based on the geo setting such as GMT / CST etc. Check for the time zone setting in the system menu.

How do i change the time setting on my magellan 1440 gps


the time is automatically set once you choose your time zone and if you observe daylight saving time, you must check that box..

go to the main menu, then system option and click on the time zone tab, then select your time zone and check off the little box for daylight saving time.

No setting instructions.


Atomic clocks are the wave of the future because of their precision. While it takes a scientist to fully understand how these clocks actually work, the general public is primarily interested in their accuracy, rather than their construction. A major benefit to atomic clocks is that they serve as the main standard for calculating time internationally. While each version of atomic clock may have minor differences, for the most part, they are set in the same way.

1. Remove the battery cover on the back of the clock using the correct screwdriver (if one is required). Be careful not to break the cover or lose any screws in the process. Insert the required number and type of batteries into the clock. Most atomic clocks take two AA batteries. Make sure the batteries are positioned with the right polarity in place, and that the clock is functioning, before replacing the battery cover. Place the cover back into its original position and screw any necessary pieces back into place to secure the cover and protect the batteries from springing free.

2. Enter the program mode of the clock by holding down the appropriate button. In most cases, the button will be clearly marked "Set." If not, refer to the clock's instructions to find out which button fulfills that function.

3. Push the button down until the clock flashes its default time zone setting of --5EST. It is now ready to program each function separately as described in the steps below. If for some reason the clock does not respond as outlined, refer to the instructions provided with it for troubleshooting guidance.

4. Press the + button to select the right time zone from the 13 international options provided. The default setting of --5EST (Eastern Time), should appear first, followed by --6 CST (Central Time), -7MST (Mountain Time), -8PST (Pacific Time), -9ALA (Alaskan Time), -10HAW (Hawaiian Time), -11, -12, GMT (Greenwich Mean Time), -1, -2, -3 and --4ATL (Atlantic Time). Then push the "Set" button down again to confirm the time-zone setting you have chosen. Push down the "Set" button again and hold until the selected time zone flashes.

5. Press the "Set" button down two more times to establish the default language setting. Press the + button down to select English, French or Spanish. Then push the "Set" button down again to confirm the language setting.

6. Push down the "Set" button again and hold it until the time zone flashes. Then press the button down three more times until the time 12:00 flashes. Press the + button down to select the hour at the time of the clock's setting. Make sure the hour is set appropriately to AM or PM. Then push the "Set" button down once more to confirm the hour setting.

7. Push the "Set" button again and hold until the time zone flashes. Then press the "Set" button four more times until 00 flashes. Press the + button down again to select the minutes at the moment of setting. Push the "Set" button once more to confirm the minute setting.

8. Push the "Set" button again and hold until the time zone flashes. Then press the "Set" button five more times until the default year flashes. Press the + button down. Toggle through the settings until the appropriate year is reached. Then press the "Set" button down to confirm the year.

9. Push the "Set" button again and hold until the time zone flashes. Then press the "Set" button six more times until the default month of January is reached. Toggle through until you reach the right month. Then press the "Set" button down to confirm the month.

10. Push the "Set" button again and hold until the time zone flashes. Then press the "Set" button seven more times until the default date of 1 is reached. Toggle through until you reach the right date. Then press the "Set" button down to confirm the date.

11. Push the "Set" button again and hold until the time zone flashes. Then press the "Set" button eight more times until the default setting of Sunday is found. Toggle through until you reach the right weekday. Then press the "Set" button down to confirm the weekday.

Hope this helps......best wishes.

Wrong date and time


Your GPS receive its date and time from satellites. Take the unit outside and acquire a satellite fix in order to update your time and date. You can set the time zone and time display (12hr, 24hr, UTC) under the unit setting.
