Although I have not yet tested, I believe my IFD540 most likely exhibits the same airport chart toggle behavior due to the same behavior present in the IFD540 Trainer App.
Yep, that's a bug in flight code.  I just fixed it.  Will be in 10.3.

Steve,
Thanks for the update.  Not that important if it requires a lot of code to be changed.  Easy enough to subtract 4 or 5 hours and voila!!

Sadly, the method that we use to manage time on the IFDs is not allowed on the iPad.  To make it work, we would have to change a lot of code.  The IFD100 is a port of the flight code with very minimal change. We prefer to keep it that way, so any fix for this IFD100 problem would involve a change to flight code. As a result, it's unlikely that this particular issue on the IFD100 will get fixed anytime soon.

As long as you're tweaking the iPad guy, Steve, please see the thread about the fuel datablocks in the IFD100 forum. You might gently suggest to him that he hang out there the way you do here.. unless that takes away from his development time, in which case ssshhhhhh.

Not yet.  I'll tweak the iPad guy to make sure it's on his radar.

Yep, apologies — that’s what I get for trying to be helpful before cup #2.

I’ve slept more than once since I last changed mine, but it is possible. Seems like I rotated the lower-right outer knob until over the local offset line, then rather than trying to select it I just rotated the inner knob to change the offset value.

It is not possible to change that.  It gets it from the IFD but the ETA at destination is wrong as it does not take Zulu time into consideration.  I was hoping that would be fixed in 10.2.1 but maybe next release?

How do you change the local time offset.
It is grayed out in the user options.
