Logs show different date in geocache.com

Postby lyallpearce » Wed Apr 17, 2013 5:42 am

I am in Adelaide, Australia, Timzone UTC+9:30

Logs that I found, using my iPhone 4s IOS 6.1.3 with L4C 1.2.2 show the correct date on the iPhone but show the previous day on Geocaching.com

Basically, I found 12 caches before 3:30pm on Wednesday 17-Apr-2013 and Geocaching.com logs show as them being found on the 16th.

I have my Geocaching.com profile setup for Adelaide, Australia.

Somewhere, my timezone is not being taken into consideration.

I would have thought that geocaching would have encountered this a fair bit earlier with all their users, so I thought I would start at L4C :(

Should I shift my target to geocaching.com or is there a problem in L4C in how it reports the dates to geocaching.com?

Hi,

the problem is that geocaching.com displays the logs in the PST timezome (Seattle). L4C uploads to logs in the correct format (without timezone, just sending them as UTC time). There is also a open forum request on the geocaching.com forum for incorrect dates.

Here are more informations about this topic: http://www.looking4cache.com/faq/02-wrong-log-date

Best,
Thorsten
