    When I set up the time on the 350, it reverts itself to 1 hour back.
    I doubled checked my time zone five times and it is correct.
    I tried with Tim signal on or off.
    I have the GPS option.

    I set the time, it is correct for a some minutes and than revert it self to one hour back.

    What am I missing?

    Tech support days to upgrade the firmware.
    I should get the cable today and will do that tomorrow.

    I upgraded the firmware this morning and it is doing the same thing.
    It does not just go back one hour.
    If it shows 7 O'Clock and I set it to the correct time, it goes back to 7 O'Clock.
    if I set it to 9 it goes back to 7, not to 8.

    I think it gets the time from the GPS and somehow it does not know to move it up one hour.

    It does sounds like a day light saving issue, so when the clock will "fall" behind one hour it should be OK. But I did not find anywhere Day light savings option.

    Could it be that with no DST setting that you have to change the time zone compared to Zulu(GMT). I am in the Central time zone, normally GMT -6 hours but during DST I am GMT -5 hours
