    Hi to all. I am new at this with my fist question
    I have an ipad2 with 3G connection. My location is Queensland and ther is no way that I can make this fool thing realise that I am not in Sydney time zone. Not really a problem yet but when mickey mouse time begins in NSW and not in Qld I will have problems with my calendar. Google maps shows my location exactly right as does my GPS program but as soon as I set time zone to automatic I suddenly live in Sydney
    Can anybody help?

    Thanks for the input but further to my last post and in reply to yours - I have set auto to off and set location to Brisbane but still I have the issue that every calendar entry has location as Sydney unless I physically change it for each entry. There must be something in some setting that defaults to The auto location setting and not the set location. Pedantic I suppose but very annoying having to change it everytime
