Hi

It is not possible to display the date and time if you are using the DASH2 alone.
If you are using the DASH2 with a data logger, it is possible to get the date and time information from the GPS.

If you would like any assistance in setting this up, please email support@race-technology.com and a member of our technical support team will be in touch.

Please post the solution here for all to see.

I was under the impression this could not be done???

Would be great if it could.

I got this working (on a dash2pro, but I'd think it would work on a dash2 if you have GPS data) - see this thread: https://www.race-technology.com/forum/v ... f=2&t=2802

Thanks. I found that but only GMT?

Timezone doesn't appear to be available in the GPS data. I just set mine to BST permanently (just add the appropriate offset to that equation, i.e. stick +1 at the end) as that's when I mainly use the car.

If it has to be changeable I suppose you could use a spare input to toggle GMT/BST?
