What is the story with the DST change taking place overnight. My understanding is that this is a week later than usual for NSW so how is a navigator supposed to do the alteration tonight.
Just in case it doesn't can anybody tell me how to do a MANUALl time alteration on a Garmin 510C (yes I've read the bookl and can't see any reference to it) and also on a Nuvi l260

Thankyou

I believe that NSW puts their clocks forward 1 hour to enable them to catch up with the rest of Australia.

You will be the early bird at work if you do.

NSW would have to put them forward 10 years to do that.

Last week our hours were cut back by one hour per day does that mean that I will have a smaller pay packet two weeks in a row has got something to do with the global money crisis

Hey Wigger, daylight saving in NSW is now a full six months, and will be from now on. Times will be altered on the first Sunday in October each year, then will revert back on the first Sunday in April, 6 months later. This is supposed to be a constant in our lives now, no more guessing when it will be each year! I would think your Garmin should adjust itself, assuming the time zone is entered correctly. Hope this is of some help, Dave

I can't understand this Daylight Saving thing.

In WA we've been saving daylight for the last 5 months !

Why haven't we got any now when we need it? It still gets dark just after dinner !!

Surely if I had been saving money for the past 5 months I would have some extra right now. Why doesn't it work with sunlight?

Beats me.

Anyway I'm voting NO on May 16th. You bananabenders can have it if you want it.

I'm glad I ain't too scared to be lazy

My family and I will be voting NO come May. Too hot over here for this nonsense and it is still daylight even at 8.00pm without daylight saving. WA is the nanny state and the pollys want to enforce their opinioins on us regardless of how we feel WE have had three referendums on this subject and all of them have been a convincing NO. Unless you have lived for any lenghtof time in WA - especially up North then you will see the reason why we dont want it. If big business wants it , then let their CEOs and Corporate managers get up earlier - after all its us share holders that are paying their exorbitant salaries - and termination payouts !

ive lived in WA for over 10 years including up north - so dont pretend you speak for all of us with a no vote. unless you live in the sout West the extra daylight can be quite welcome as elswhere rounfd the state the sun rises much earlier and sets much earlier

We are still voting against daylight saving in WA. We lived in Victoria for several years and there it was worth it, as we had twilight, but in WA you dont get twilight, and being over in the West the sun takes a lot longer to go down over the ocean and its still daylight at 8.00 pm with out daylight saving. Its an absolute farce and brought about by the whims a few politicians who, after three referendums, all voted vehementley against it. I dont see the need for a fourth referendum. Leave WA alone as we are quite happy with the way things are. The farmer are dead set against it as well.

Nuvi 260: Go to Tools==>Settings==>Time , then turn off and on manually if needed. There is an "auto" setting if needed.

Streetpilot c510: StreetPilotc510_OwnersManual.pdf, page 19-20

Navigators can have an "auto" setting for DST, though it would need up-to-date firmware to allow accurate changovers. I would think that they are changed over already.

The GPS network isn't concerned with DST for location calculations and accurate timings and only the firmware would handle the displaying of time format using DST.

Just another good reason to scrap DST :-)

Thanks Andrew,
have been away for a week and left before seeing your reply. Problem was I selected "on" for adjustment of DST rather than "auto" on the 510. Have also done 260 as you advised.
