I'm in the Newfoundland time zone (GMT -3:30) which is not listed on my iPod. Is there any way to get my iPod to support this time zone? I find my iCal stuff is syncing (incorrectly) all data thirty minutes late or early (e.g. to the next/previous time zone).

Shouldn't the iPod support manual time zones somehow :confused:

Thanks for any help.

Let Apple know. I don't think there is a manual time zone function.

I get the same issue here (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=130436) but judging by the responses, there aren't many of us. I told Apple at the time but they don't really seem to care. :(

I searched the forums for "ipod time zone" and didn't find that... odd.
I'm comforted to know I'm not *totally* alone.

Ah yes... for every simple problem there is a difficult and costly solution. :rolleyes: I just arrived here, FWIW.

I've been contemplating putting everything on Zulu time (UTC) as a quick fix.

I guess I'll be firing off an email to Apple... :(

Me too, I'll try again. It's really frustrating and would be pretty easy to fix.

Mines the same. Set to Sydney time but alarms go off from iCal on the iPod at GMT!

That's weird. At least you have a time zone though (well, it's under Brisbane from memory). Our problem is more that we are halfway between two time zones so all the events in iCal are out. :(

Why can't the iPod be set to not support time zones, and just be set to the 'puter it syncs with? That's a simple enough solution, right? :mad:

I shall ponder this further.

Anyway, I'm off to class. I hope I'm not a half hour late :mad: :rolleyes: :p
