Found date incorrect in GPX file

Recommended Posts

Can someone please explain this for me?

We found this cache on 5th May 2017 as shown on the cache page but the GPX files (both in the cache-page download and the My Finds file) say 6th of May 2017

I have no idea if this has occurred with other logs - I'd be surprised if this was the only one - but I noticed this one as it broke a run of consecutive days finds.

The date in the GPX download certainly used to be correct as we had a 368 day run showing in FindStatGen

The Groundspeak time/date is in UTC or basically GMT.

So depending on which app was used to log the cache you could end up on a different date.

Here in PST anything logged after 5 pm (depending on the time of the year) via the APP used to (and I believe still does) show

being logged the next day.
