Recently (within the past month), any new items I post to my iPad Calendar which sync with Gmail get changed to show GMT. I have my iPad set to force US Eastern Time zone - somewhere it looks like a field is being left blank or zero, interpreted as time zone zero = GMT and the update forced back. If, after it is forced to GMT, I change the time zone back to Eastern Time, then it holds, so it looks like the communication from iPad going out works - just not the first time. It is a real pain doing this extra work. I confirmed that the change is coming from the net and not the iPad by setting up a new entry in Airplane mode. All fine - the entry stayed as I left it. As soon as I turned Airplane mode off, the little wheel turned and pop! the GMT time label was added in. Any ideas of how I defeat this new feature?
