    I tried that and turning off the daylight savings time; however, it didn't work. I had to set mine to mountain time and turn off the daylight savings time to get the correct time.

This appears to be a issue with the Magellan code. The Magellan code is setting Daylight Savings Time according to 2007 rules and not the 2008 rules. Magellan support indicates to change the time zone from Eastern to Central, save it and then put the time zone back to Eastern Time. I do not understand this solution. You can simply uncheck the Daylight Savings Time option and this will put the clock to the correct time. You will need to check the Daylight Savings Time option to put the clock ahead one hour when the clock is off by one hour. Magellan support informs me this is a manual process. Magellan needs to create a fix in their firmware to change the clock according to 2008 Daylight Savings Time when the box is checked.

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.

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.
