Its easier to launch an ICBM than set the hour back just one hour.

Nice. Should be a sticky :whistling: Have to press that button twice a year. Why doesn't it do it automatically? ;)

Alex, What is Congress and states keep changing the rules?

When DST starts, ends. By how many hours. To opt-in or opt-out.

The time on our 430N in our JK changes itself automatically. I just went out to the garage to check and it had already updated itself overnight. I have it set to use GPS time, so maybe that has something to do with it.

U.S. Congress, in its infinite wisdom decided to arbitrarily move when we switch time, so the US --and Canada-- are now one week off at each end when we do this.

I work with clients in Mexico and Brazil, but because we are now out of synch with the rest of the world, the two hour difference we always have with Mexico City was only 1 hour last week, but today it went back to two hours because we just switched.

To make it even more confusing, the four hour difference with Brazil became five hours last week, but today the difference widened to six hours, because the U.S. set itself back one week behind everyone else.

Trying to set up conference calls with other countries last week was like watching Abbott and Costello do their "Who's in first" routine...

I have mine set TO USE GPS... so why in the hell doesn't mine work like that?

Maybe it does and I should give it time...
