So that you don't have to

So that you don't have to manually change the time when you cross a time Zone boundary.

As I recall, the last time any time zone boundary changed was in 2007 when a few counties in Indiana moved from Central time zone to Eastern time zone.

Sets time based on location

The time zone map is used set the correct time zone based on your location. When you travel across a time zone boundary, your Garmin will automatically correct to the new time zone you are in. It is also used to calculate arrival time if you route to a destination that crosses time zones.

Note that many of the older Garmin devices do not use the Timezone map. On those devices you have to specify the timezone you are in in the device settings.

Yes, my 855 Nuvi always requires the time zone to be set manually. Kind of silly for a device that knows where it is, but it is what it is.

I have no idea why

But it seems that almost always, right around the change from DST to Standard Time, and Standard Time to DST, a new Time Zone Map is released.

Go figure.

A new time zone map sounds

A new time zone map sounds about as important as knowing what GMT, UTC or Zulu time it is...

Well, depending where you live/visit...

Here's the change log from https://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=4747

Changes made from version 20.00 to 21.00:

  • Northern Cyprus has decided to resume EU rules starting 2017-10-29, thus reinstituting winter time.
  • National Telecommunication Cooperation stated a change of time (to be GMT +2 instead of GMT+3) is going to be permanently starting from 1st November 2017. This will not affect South Sudan.
  • Fiji will end DST on 2018-01-14, not 2018-01-21.
  • Turks and Caicos- DST will be reintroduced on March 11, 2018.
  • Tonga has likely ended its experiment with DST, and will not adjust its clocks on 2017-11-05.

Changes made from version 19.00 to 20.00:

  • The Mongolian Cabinet has abolished DST.
  • Chile: The Magallanes Region has opted to indefinitely stay of DST. This will also affect the Chilean Antarctic.
  • United States: A special fix for West Wendover, NV to include it in the Mountain time zone.

TZ

I usually cross only one time zone in the fall and then back in the spring and that's around Nashville, Tn. From EST to CST.
I can still remember that even in my declining years.
This wouldn't do me a bit of good this summer when I'll vacation in Russia, no need for GPS there!

Unless...

...one lives on or near the line, the change is of no practical consequence.

Travelers will cross the line with no awareness of the instant in time.

Do it or else

If you don't update, you'll get that annoying reminder to update.

That alone is good reason to update.

I personally could care less about time zones outside of North America, and I really only care about time zones in the United States. What the Mongolian Cabinet does or what affects the Chilean Antarctic is of absolutely no concern whatsoever to me - or likely to 99.999% of members here. For the 4,261 people that live in West Wendover, NV I'm sure the 'special fix' (whatever that means) to include them in the Mountain time zone was important to them to be fixed.

I personally did care a tiny bit, thus I could care [even] less.

Thanks for the heads up

Probably new TZ maps in the Fall

There has been news about Day Light Savings, and how it is being debated, with some areas choosing to save or not save day light, which will probably lead to new TZ maps in the Fall, or whenever they decide to do whatever.
