Im having issues with my 700hdx where the time alaways shows an hour out no matter what time i set in the Time/Date settings. Im also having issues with it not changing from night/day colours automatically it keeps staying on day colours.

Thanks Mark

    Hello Mark,

    In early April 2019, the US government updated the time signals on the GPS satellites (has to be done every 9 years). Some GPS units resynchronized themselves with no issues others were out in time by random amounts.

    You have two options - 1. you can change the time manually, and will have to do so again when daylight savings starts (if applicable in your area), or 2. Install the firmware update (onto a blank SD card). - The 100% fix

    To change the time manually, from the Street Navigation software tap Menu - Spanner icon - scroll down to Regional - ensure that Time Zone is set to Manual and untick Daylight savings, and change the GMT offset to suit your location: Plus 8.00 Perth. Plus 9.30 SA. Plus 10.00 East coast. You will have to add an hour when daylight savings commences.

    One further setting you need to check is the date and time settings in the system menu.

    From the screen - Street / Offroad - tap Settings then Date and time. Tap on the icons on each line to enter the adjustment screen, ensure that all is correct for your time zone - Time - Date and GMT.
