Date is correct now. Seems to be tracks in March, or saving in April, the current track with start points in March. Probably a Feb 29 Leap day bug.

Hi Guys,
I recently bought an explorist 610 and noticed the wrong dates here also. It even wrote 2012-03-32 in the GPX file while we were walking/recording that track on the 31st of march...
That can't be right !
We live in the netherlands and are only +1 hour shifted from GMT time.
Attached you will find the GPX file with the InValid dates.
Looks like a bug to me !

I'm shure difference between local and GMT time in this case does not matter. In my region the shift between local time ant GMT is +6 hours.

So far, I have the following statistics:

2011-Nov-09 - Date correct
2011-Nov-10 - Date correct
2012-Jan-17 - Date correct
2012-Jan-18 - Date correct
2012-Mar-09 - Date incorrect, set to 2012-Mar-10
2012-Mar-29 - Date incorrect, set to 2012-Mar-30
2012-Mar-30 - Date incorrect, set to 2012-Mar-31
2012-Apr-02 - Date correct
2012-Apr-03 - Date correct
2012-Apr-06 - Date correct

It seems that the wrong date in the tracks appear in March only...

//Cheers, Victor

It is not a satellite problem. I have two tracks recorded simultaneously by two devices located close to each other. One of the devices - Magellan eXplorist 310, second - GPS Logger Qstarz BT-Q1000P. The track, recorded eX310 date is incorrect, in the track, recorded Qstarz - is correct.

Please email (Zukicacher@gmail.com) me one of the track files with this problem and I will get it to the engineers at Magellan so they can get this fixed. When you email it to me, please include the model number and firmware version. I beleive you said this is a 110 so it will only have the original firmware - but please include this so I don't forget...

Thanks,
David

I was about to post the same problem when I saw this. My 110 is showing the track log date 24 hours ahead. I am familiar with track logs and the UTC time. The actual track points have a date one day ahead, although the UTC time is correct. And the date of the track listed on the Track screen shows one day ahead. And the date of the active track sometimes shows 31 as in 2031.

It did not do this previously, and the change was either after leap year or the time change to daylight.

The x10 uses UTC time (GMT) internally. The file creation date for a track seems to be obtained from the time that the track was saved. Depending on your location, this might be one day greater than the local date. In my case, any file saved after 4 pm will have tomorrow's date, depending on the vagaries of daylight saving.

The time field for each track point also uses the UTC date and time so that it will exhibit the same behavior.

Vantage Point seems to adjust the date and time for the track points and for the file based on the local time zone.

I don't know if this is your problem, but it is one possible explanation.

I encountered a strange problem in my eXplorist 310 (FW ver. 1.17). Sometimes (I do not understand under what conditions) while keeping track of points of its date is set for the day ahead of the true.
