    Question about DST Setting

    As I understand it we are currently in 'Daylight Savings Time' here in MI until Nov 1st, so on my PAG-240 I should have the DST set to 'ON'

    However when I do that (and set to the correct time) the Sunrise/Sunset times are an hour off from what they should be, when I turn the DST back 'OFF' the Sunrise and Sunset times are correct. I have the correct LAT/LONG input for my area.

    What am I missing?

    Hmmmm, good question. Only thing I can think of is that, that older module does not take into account the DST setting, which I admit, is hard to believe.

    Could be the city code setting is overriding the Lat/Long setting? Just a guess, but reading the manual, this module is more complicated for Sunrise readings than other Casio in my experience.

    Oddly, if I set my home city to CHI (which is in central time) everything works as it should with DST set to 'ON'
