Date not correct on Kindle Voyage
« on: May 22, 2018, 08:14:14 AM »
The date on my Kindle Voyage is not displaying correctly. It's 2 days off (ie it says it's May 20 but it's the 22nd). I've updated software, I've connected to wi-fi and synced, I've turned off and on, I've gone to the time and put it to a.m. and then p.m., I've restarted while connected to wifi. Nothing. It's still off.

I have the latest Voyage and wifi only. The wifi is off 99% of the time. I can't find any place to adjust the date; just the time.  Any thoughts? Thanks!

Hmmm. The date on my Kindle Voyage doesn't display at all! :o I was not aware it was a feature so I don't know where you can set it. I just went through all the settings/menus on my voyage and I found nothing. :(

You do have to set the TIME -- it doesn't adjust, for example, for daylight savings time or anything of the sort.

I just spend the last 5 minutes trying to find a date. I couldn't. Now sometimes my time is off, usually when the savings time changes. My kindles are wifi only and they don't seem to adjust the time to that. But I have no clue where the date would be on it.

When you are on a page on a book on the Kindle and you touch the top of the screen and it shows you the home button, the back button, the light button, Goodreads, store, search, wifi on or off, battery level, time, 3 dots for settings, go to, x-ray, font, bookmark. On the bottom, it shows the date, book progress, and two buttons. My date says May 20th and it's May 22.

LOL!!!!! So it is. In my defense, it is confusing when you are reading a book with the chapter name that is close to the date of the month you are reading it on.  :P ::)  Or clearly it's just me.  :o  Obviously before I never noticed that the chapter name popped up!

Thanks!

:) The only reason I realized it so fast is because I happen to be reading a kindle manual at the moment and just a few minutes ago, I read, "chapter name, if available, will appear..."

 ;D That is so much something I would have done too.

 At least I don't have to dig into all my kindle settings anymore trying to find the darn date.  :P

Yeah ... I was just going to say: mine says "chapter 20" . . . but I can totally understand the confusion!

You should keep reading really quickly so you can catch up to today! ::) ;) 8)
