    Europe and dst does Casio need to rebuild their modules?

    Hello,

    I got my Though solar a few days ago. A great feature are the world times. I noticed that some cities in Europe for ex. London, Madrid and Lisbon do not state the right time. The whole of Europe uses daylight saving time. The dst is switched on. So my Amsterdam time is ok. The module does not ad the dst to the other european countries. Other world cities are correct. Am I right about this or is there something I forgot?

    The usual wolrd time modules have to be manually set to DST in every city.
    The only exception is the DST on the home time zone on atomics which is set by the time signal (if this is enabled).

    Thanks! I didn't know this. I am already setting them all to dst now.

    However, IMO Casio still needs to rebuild their module :)
    Setting BY DEFAULT main cities with their known DST mode, while letting the user modify them manually like currently (which is necessary since all cities in the same timezone don't have necessary the same dst policy, and this policy is even open to changes).
    This default dst setting attribution could be useful in MOST cases.

    This website link below shows you which countries have DST and which don't:
    http://www.worldtimezone.com

    I use it for seeing the DST and the world time for all of my Casio G-Shocks that have world time. Check it out.

    Well I thought about this but what happens if a country decides they do not want to have dst anymore? I think this is the best option and another excuse to play some more with your watch.

    That's one of the reasons I wrote that there should still be the option to set the dst manually.
    Still statistically I think it would be worth implementing that default setting, it would benefit in most cases, and in the remaining cases you would just have to set manually.

    Trouble is countries switch to DST on various dates.

    In the USA different states have different policies regarding DST.

    Yep, we're somewhat "spoiled" in europe in this regard. But there's actually one country in europe, which dont use DST at all, and that's Iceland...
