    Why is the time so far off (usually about five minutes) when I set Time to automatic?

    5 minutes off from what? What's your control time?

    The iPad displays actual time. Your reference is wrong.
    :) :)

    Purple is asking you what source you use for 'actual time'. Why is it more accurate than the iPad time display?

    Has anyone found a site to sync the iPad to the world clock? I haven't found one that works with Pad yet

    iPad time is correct for me and I have it set to auto.

    Your referance time may be off. I'm checking my iPad with an atomic watch that is syncronized via WWVB Atomic Clock time signal transmitted from Colorado. So I know my referance watch is exact.

    Thank you all for your replies. I seem to have a problem. My reference time is the US Atomic clock (as well as my cell phone and cable TV signal - all of which are in sync). My iPad consistently gives a time reading about five minutes ahead of the all the others. I wonder what I can do about it?

    Does it really matter?? You don't have a watch or cell phone? Or do you just need them all to change at exactly the same time or you can't leave your home?
