Re: Daylight Saving on SPIII
GPS satelllites only transmit GMT (Greenwich Mean Time, or "Zulu" time for you military/aviation types). The offset from GMT is setup in your setup screens, and you have to set DST on or off yourself. The automatic switchover in most GPS units is still based on the old dates, and will not be affected until a software update is done. It is controlled totally by the software in the unit, not the satellites. I don't think there has been a firmware update available for some time now on the old Streetpilot III units, may never be, as this is basically an obsolete unit now in Garmin's eyes.

No bike now, but maybe in the future.
