I also have a Magellan Triton 300 and I can not change it to my time zone.. how can I change it?


From the user manual at http://www.magellangps.com/assets/manuals/MagellanTriton_300_400_500_UserManual.pdf
it says:
Setting the Time Zone
The time and date information will be computed from information from the GPS satellites so there is
no requirement for you to input any time or date information. However, to make the time accurate
for your location you must select the correct time zone.
1. From the Map screen press MENU.
2. Select View.
3. Select Settings.
4. Scroll down and select Date & Time.
5. Select the Time Zone field.
Press button
momentarily
Fundamentals

6. From the drop-down menu, select your current time zone. (Time zones are not changed
automatically when travelling. If you travel to an area with a different time zone, you will
need to change it here for accurate time information.)
7. Repeat the process for the Daylight Savings field.
8. Press ESC when done.

IPhone sync with Outlook Calendar - Appointment time put on iPhone 1 hr later.


This solution pertains only to the one hour time difference people notice upon syncing to MS outlook.

In iPhone, there are two areas where you have an option to change your time settings.

1. When you go to 'settings', then to 'general', you can set up time and date, and also 12-24 hour format. Please note that changing the time here DOES NOT correct the problem, despite iPhone displaying correct date, time and time zone. Many people in this thread have stated that the problem persisted despite them setting appropriate time zone.

2. When you go to 'settings', then to 'mail, contacts and calendars' row (NOT the 'General' row) - you get an option to change your time zone at the very bottom of all the choices. You will see that wrong time zone is selected here - likely cause of the problem. Correct this choice and the one hour discrepancy between appointments in outlook and iPhone disappears.


Additional problem solutions - in the solution No. 2, if you set 'Time Zome Support' to 'ON', then all your appointments in the calendar will be displayed in the time zone of your HOME address. In other words, for example, if you are a person in central time zone, your appointments will be displayed ALWAYS in central time zone format - they will NOT change automatically when you travel from central time zone to eastern time zone. On the other hand, if you set the time zone support to 'OFF', then all your outlook appointment display times will change and adjust according to any time zone you travel to - This is often an inconvenience since most of us would like to remember our appointments as they were made in our home time zone, regardless of what time zone we traveled to.

Please note that the above solution pertains to only display of appoint times in outlook - This solution does NOT relate to the time displayed by iPhone and how that displayed time adjusts when you travel to different time zone away from your home time zone. This second issue is addressed below -

You can get your iPhone to display the current time in two ways -

1. Either always show the time in your home time zone, regardless of where you are (i.e., a person from Texas central time zone can set up to see the time always in central time, even if he/she travels to another time zone). This display setup is good for people who always think of time in their home time zone and then do mental conversions to reach at the local time zone time.

2. On the other hand, you can get iPhone to do this for you and change displayed clock time automatically to the local time zone that you have traveled to, away from your home time zone. Please note that enabling this capability in iPhone has no bearing on how the appointments are displayed in MS outlook.

Go to 'Settings'. Go to 'General' tab. then click on 'date and time'. Pick the 'set automatically' option to 'ON'. Now, the iPhone will automatically adjust displayed time to show the current time in which ever time zone you travel to.

If you set the 'set automatically' option to 'OFF', then you can select your home time zone. Then, the iPhone will always display time in your home city time zone and will NOT change even if you travel to a different time zone.

So, in summary, there are two places you need to adjust the time zones in iPhone - to do two separate tasks, first task of displaying appointments always in your home time zone upon syncing with outlook thereby avoiding the one hour skip; Second task of getting iPhone to display either your home time zone clock, or getting it to adjust current time to reflect the time in new time zone you travel to.

Hope this helps.
