Getting Eastern Time Zone to register Model X3-03

I have followed the manual-changed the time zones, set correct date and time locally. When I go back to "map" screen, the time still showes as GMT zone with a 2 hour difference. The other functions of the setup have a check mark to click on to confirm. Nothing on this section.

  • royceiu Feb 13, 2009

    I purchased this GPS on Feb 7th. I was on sale, 50% off. I also can't set the eastern standard time. Wasn't a product quality inspection done at the factory prior to shipping?

How do i set the time on my kindle fire?


Tap the little gear icon in the upper-right, tap "More...", then tap "Date & Time".

If you want the Kindle to automatically set the correct date and time from the internet, make sure "Automatic" is set ON, tap "Select Time Zone" then set your time zone. Otherwise set "Automatic" to Off" then tap "Set Time", set the time, then tap "Set Date" and set the date.

MY NEW TOMTOM HAS WRONG TIME. ONE HOUR AHEAD. HOW DO I RESET THE CORRECT TIME?


Tap changes preferences on the main menu
then you can do set time or set units depending which model you have. You then set the time zone and the unit gets the time from the gps satellites and display it with your local time zone changes.
You may just have to set or enable DST (daylight savings time ) if after setting the zone/time it is still out.

If you don;t have can;t find your manual you can get a pdf version free from tomtom. Just go to www.tomtom.com and click on support and then look for user guides. You may have to set your location/country-language before you can get to support. Then just download the manual which you can read or print using a pdf reader ie a free one such as adobe reader. The time stuff is covered under the preferences area on the manual.

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

Magellan Maestro 3200 GPS - wrong time on unit


My Megellan Roadmate had the same problem the time was way off and the date read 8/06/2009 instead of 06/17/2009. I tried everything the previous posting mentioned to no avail. I called Magellan tech support and they talked me thru it. (1) Turn the unit on outside ( not in a building ) (2) Hold down on the power button for 20sec. then let go. (3) Turn the unit on and go to the map. (4) Touch the upper rt. corner were the bars are, the screen will change and say tracking X (#) of sattilites. wait untill the bars for the sattiligts all change to green now you can go back to the main menu and the time should be correct.
