    Default Wrong time in iGO Nextgen

    Hi.
    Since a few days suddenly the time ( in top right button ) is one hour later on my tablet.
    After app launch the time is ok for say 10 / 20 sec but it looks like when it finds the gps fix, time jumps one hour later while Android time is correct.

    I started GPS UP app and I see this :
    Spoiler: GPS UP tablet
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    15-07-2001 ?

    In iGO settings > GPS info also shows the wrong GPS UTC time ( or not available ) and no GLONASS at all, outside under a clear sky :

    GPS UP on my smartphone Android 10 ( next to the tablet ) :
    Spoiler: GPS UP Smartphone
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    So, that is ok.

    No Android and app updates installed, automatic updates always disabled although sometimes when starting the tablet I see the little download arrow on top downloawding something ?
    Maybe Google screwed up something again ? Had that a few times in the past after such a invisible update of something, no idea what.
    But did not noticed that the last few days.

    Does iGO Nextgen use GPS time or Android system time ?

    Wrong time is not such a big problem but when I calculate a route of let's say 10 min after calculation that route will take 80 minutes.

    What's happening ?
    Is there a setting in sys.txt to use the system time maybe ?

    I noticed the same problem a few days ago in my car Head Unit ( Android 6.0.1 - same iGO version ) yesterday but I checked today a few times
    but everything seems to be fine suddenly.

    Tablet Android 5.0.2

    Someone has the same problem ?

    Perhaps something a\o somehow went wrong with Daylight saving time (DST)?

    Have you tried with a GPS application other than GPS UP? (And after removing GPS UP!)

    Hi all

    Just a question : are you sure that it is not the infamous GPS bug (06/04/2019) ?

    I have exactly the same issue one time on two with my S2...

    Well, daylight saving time is March 27 - 28 so I don't think so ?
    And that bug ?
    Android system time stays correct, it only happens in iGO.
    I deleted gps up already and installed again, no result and no other gps apps.
    Besides, as I said, with gps up I never had problems until last week.

    >> Androļd system time is given by network and phone connection...

    >> GPS-time is given by the satellites and many old devices will never be updated for the new calculation mode used since 04/2019


    But for that...
    with gps up I never had problems until last week
    ... no explanation at all

    So correct me if I'm wrong, the time displayed in iGO is gps time, not android system time.
    Why did I never had any problems since 2019 ?

    Why not trying with another GPS app, which has a Refreshing/Updating A-GPS data feature?

    And, DST does not refer just to a date but to adding/subtracting one hour.

    @ kwbs

    I also ran GPS Reset COM - GPS Repair, Navigation & GPS info, nothing changed.

    As you can see the GPS Time is correct.

    But in iGO :

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    GPS UTC time is always 14.25.51. Time never changes.

    I have also TomTom Go, Copilot and Magic Earth on this tablet, all of them give the right arrival time except iGO gives driving time + 1 hour.

    Hi rider

    Yes, the same on my Galaxy S2 --> confirms GPS-Bug on your device


    NB: you cannot do anything because it needs manufacturer's correction files
