if the time comes from the gps signal and hopefully the unit knows where I am, why is my time off by 2 hrs?  We all don’t live in TX y’all know!  (Thank god).  Where do I set the local time zone since it appears the unit thinks I’m in the central time zone, not pacific?

Before the iFly boots into the gps program, click on 'Option' to find your time zone. There is a box to check for Daylight Saving Time on the Option page.

The unit knows where you are, but doesn't have knowledge of all the time zone boundaries and laws, and there's no plan to implement such, so pielit's instructions for the manual time zone  and DST settings above is the right answer.  That behavior's been the same for years and years.
