I had the same problem; go into Navigation > hit "I agree" > hit "Menu" > hit "settings" > hit "Localization" > then choose whatever timezone you're in. I'm in the eastern and mine was set to pacific.

Hope this helps.

How do i change the time on my Tom-Tom





To select the time format and to set the time, follow these steps:
  1. From the main menu, tap Change preferences.

  2. Tap Set clock.

  3. Select how the time should be displayed and then tap Next.

  4. The easiest way to set the time is by tapping the Sync button. Your navigation device will then take the time from GPS information.
    Note: You can only use Sync if your device can receive a satellite signal, so you cannot set the clock in this way when you are indoors.

  5. After using Sync to set the time, you may have to adjust the hours depending on your time zone and the daylight-saving time.

The safety lock is enabled and I am unable to turn this off. I am also unable to navigate to an address or favorites. It is also on the wrong time zone.


The safety lock is active only while the device is moving. When you stop, you can access all buttons again. To switch off the feature,
  • Tap the map display to go to the device main menu
  • Tap "Change Preferences"
  • The TomTom XL device hides many menu options by default. If you can see an icon "Show ALL menu options", tap this one next. It should show as "Show fewer menu options" now.
  • Locate the icon "Safety Preferences" (a red heart on blue background) and tap it. This will allow you to deactivate the safety lock feature.
  • You may want to hide the lesser used menu options again.
In order to set the time properly:
  • Tap the clock button to set the time and to change the way the time is displayed.
  • The easiest way to set the time is by tapping the Sync button. Your ONE XL will then take the time from the GPS information it receives.
  • After using Sync to set the time, you may have to adjust the hours depending on your time zone. Your ONE XL works out your time zone and always keeps the time correct using the GPS information.
  • You can only use Sync if you have GPS reception, so you cannot set the clock in this way when you are indoors.

My magellan maestro 4040 is an hour ahead on the time. I have tried changing the time zone and region but no luck. Any ideas?


did you check off for daylight saving time?

its in the time zone settings..make sure the magellan is acquiring the satellites (it it displaying your location...if it is, its probably because the daylight savings time isnt checked

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.

How to set the current time.time did not change when we turn the clock back one hour.


either your 1440 was never set to include daylight saving time or the unit was reset at some point.

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.

Wrong 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.

Change the time on the magellan roadmate 1212?


I was in same situation with a magellan roadmate 1212. From what I can tell, the "daylight savings" is not what many of us may be accustomed to... that is, that it means that the location you are at follows daylight savings as happens with Windows or many other devices.

I bet those in Arizona never had a problem becuase they don't follow time zone... let me explain....

The daylight savings seems to state "are we currently under daylight savings time?" if we say yes (as you would normally state in your Windows computer setting (that would determine when daylight starts and stops and adjust pc time accordingly), the magellan 1212 instead will "ADD" one hour to the time stated by the Satellites regardless on whether it is summer ... or not.

So, if you happen to live in a time zone that follows "daylight savings" and you currently are under "daylight savings" time, then set it so in the "time zone".

So, there are two things you have to do:

/menu/user options/system settings/time zone/

1)Set your time zone
2)If currently under Set/unset the daylight savings set button to yes and manually move to no when not on DLS.

The explanation I found in MagellanGPS website is below, but never mentions what is the meaning (I should say effect) of the "daylight savings" button checkmark.

Magellan GPS receivers are not able to set the Time manually. In order to have the correct time set on your Magellan GPS receiver, you must set the proper time zone you are located in (ie Pacific, Central or Eastern). Once the time zone is set the exact hour and minute will display as information is received from the satellites. The following information will assist you on setting the time zone on your Magellan GPS. For Outdoor Triton series 200, 300, 400, 500, 1500 and 2000
  1. From the map screen press Menu and select View
  2. Select profiles and press Enter
  3. Select hiking and press Enter
  4. Press the Page/Go To key once and scroll down to select time zone
  5. Press Enter to select your time zone and Enter again to confirm.
  6. Press ESC repeatedly until you return to the map screen.
Note: Make sure Daylight Savings is adjusted accordingly. For Vehicle Navigation series Maestro and RoadMate 1200-1430
  1. From the map screen select Menu
  2. Select User Options
  3. Select System Settings
  4. Select Time Zone
Note: Make sure Daylight Savings is adjusted accordingly
