Would be nice if the uploader adjusted automatically for your run's time-zone as per your GPS coordinates.
I'm in the UK right now (normally on the East Coast of the USA): all my runs are a few hours off.

I think this is the problem that Run To Win was having a few weeks ago. It is certainly possible to calculate local time based on GPS data. The hard part is finding cost effective services to provide lat/lng lookup and time zone conversion data. The time zone is tied to your computer's time. As a work around, if you change your computer's time, then the workout time should be correct.
Interestingly, the watch auto-adjusts for local time the first time it hits a satellite. At least according to the watch-face clock.
Too bad that isn't kept anywhere in the data-file. Maybe I'll fix my wife's computers' TZ
The local time can be obtained, but I don't know if it's more reliable than say the computer's time. There are some GPS models that do not update the time zone automatically. I have a 110 and it does it sporadically. I'm not sure under what condition would it update either.
