DESCRIPTION

The start and end dates for Daylight Saving Time (DST) will change for US time zones in 2007. DST will now start on the 2nd Sunday of March and end on the first Sunday of November. Softpaq SP34629 will be available to automatically adjust for DST on the correct dates. This is a RAM patch that modifies the registry. This change will be lost if a hard reset is performed on the iPAQ, and the patch will have to be re-applied. These changes are only supported on units with PPC2003, PPC2003SE and Mobile 5.0. It will work on previous versions, but is not supported.

Symptoms:

iPAQ does not automatically adjust to new Daylight Saving Time starting 2nd Sunday of March 2007.
