Hi
I've just recently purchased a Garmin Oregon 450 to primarily do Geocaching. I'm using GSAK to transfer the caches to the unit. The problem that I am having is that the Garmin changes the date format in the logs to American mm-dd-yyyy format. I have hunted high and low for an option to change the date format, but can't find it anywhere. Any clues would be most appreciated. When I import the PQ into GSAK it originally comes in in the American format but by clicking on reformat date in GSAK it resets the date format to the same setting as the computer, dd-mm-yyyy, but it still gets changed on the Oregon.

Thanks
John

I've never understood why the Americans run the date format they do. It makes more sense to run day-month-year - smallest to largest - why is that not simple and obvious!
