    Why my ipad2 timezone auto change to another countries timezone when im not overseas? I'm the setting when I set it automatically it it will change to other timezone that different from my current location.(I'm in London) Also when I sync with my Mac the timezone will change after sync. I can only set the time manually, but there's another problem is when I use my Facebook or twitter I can't see what time is the post that my friend posted. Eg: 15minutes ago. Can someone help me out or somebody encountered the same problem as me?

    Open the Map app. Where does it think you are located?

    Also, try changing your time zone under Settings >> Mail, Contacts, Calendars >> Time Zone Support. That might help the second problem, and might not.

    As a temporary fix you might be able to go to Settings >> Locations Services, and turn it off. You probably won't want to keep it this way, because it will limit quite a few useful apps from working properly, including the Maps app.

    Ok, that pretty much exhausts my ideas. One last thing to try, and for something like this I don't hold out much hope, is a reset.

    Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears (ignore the power off slider if it appears). The iPad should reboot.

    I would suggest verifying that you have the correct timezone set on the laptop or PC that you sync with.

    Go to your ipad Settings>General>Reset>Reset Location Warnings

    Message pop up, click reset and check your time and map location if this help.
