I know that Palm has a file to run to "update" Palms with regarding to Daylight Saving (it's mentioned in another forum topic, I know) ... BUT here's my question:

Do I really need to bother running Palm's update ... IF I manually went into my Palm's preferences, then went to my current time "location" and manually changed the "rules" for the Start/Stop of Daylight Saving?

I changed the week to "second" ... changed the month to "March" and left the day at "Sunday". Seems like that should handle it ... is there some reason I don't understand to bother running the Palm update software still?

Sounds like your option will work. However; will you have to update that for the fall also? The download was quick and easy, now, I don't have to worry about changing the settings to my palm. I think its just a matter of preference.

I received an update in my email from palm. Quick and easy install.
I question if you don't update will it revert back to when you sync next? My palm backs up all the data and when it re syncs everything is back. Just a thought

Commenting on the comments of others ...

Yes, I also changed the "end of DST" settings also ... I changed them to: First Week / November / Sunday ... I just forgot to mention that. So in theory I should be "set for life", or at least the life of the Palm.

Good point, not sure what will happen when I sync the Palm ... I should try that. I hope the settings don't jump back. That could be the only reason I see to use the software "fix" (since I've made the change manually already) ... maybe the Palm software on the desktop computer also gets "fixed" by the "fix". I will try that tonight and report back.

Follow-up to my last posting ...

I synced both our Palms ... everything stayed they way it should (ie. time didn't change, the change to the DST scheme didn't change, schedule Calendar appointments didn't change).

To the best of my experience, I don't think the PC-side of the Palm sync process "cares" about what time it is. I see no place to deal with Time Zones or Time of Day on the PC-side.

Also note that both ways are just a soft fix.

From Palm
All users: In the event of a hard reset, this update will need to be installed and run again on your device.

Regardless of which way you go, if your PALM does have a hard reset, which mine has done 2 times in 1 year, you will be back to square one.
