    My subject GPS has the wrong time. How can I reset it? This started a couple of weeks ago.

    You need to supply more details, e.g. :-

    1. Does the unit get a satellite fix?
    2. What Date does the unit display?
    3. How old is the unit?
    4. Is the time displayed a complete hour or more out (with Minutes correct)?

    Normally the time and date are set when the unit gets a satellite fix, so even if the time was wrong the 'fix' should correct it, I'm wondering if the time error is always the same e.g. always off by 14 hours and 45 mins, or does the time start a 00:00 when the unit is turned on and you read the time 12 minutes after it was turned on

    The unit will timestamp points when it creates a Track so you could determine if it is just the displayed time that is incorrect by examining a Track file, this will also show the date
