Hi there!
Believe it or not, time travel is possible. And I have just discovered such a time travel in a log file of my Garmin Oregon 400t. It happened during a short holiday in Italy, I was surrounding the island of Elba on bicycle. Now I looked through the log file in order to clean it up before publishing and discovered following entries:
<trkpt lat="42.759131" lon="10.260068"><ele>102.52</ele><time>2010-06-01T13:59:59Z</time></trkpt>

<trkpt lat="42.759218" lon="10.260393"><ele>104.44</ele><time>2010-06-01T14:00:15Z</time></trkpt>
<trkpt lat="42.759355" lon="10.260577"><ele>106.36</ele><time>2010-06-01T14:00:25Z</time></trkpt>
<trkpt lat="42.759523" lon="10.260817"><ele>108.29</ele><time>2010-06-01T14:00:38Z</time></trkpt>
<trkpt lat="42.759631" lon="10.261094"><ele>111.17</ele><time>2010-06-01T14:00:51Z</time></trkpt>
<trkpt lat="42.759559" lon="10.261560"><ele>114.05</ele><time>2010-06-01T14:01:09Z</time></trkpt>
<trkpt lat="42.759577" lon="10.261942"><ele>116.46</ele><time>2010-06-01T13:59:56Z</time></trkpt>
<trkpt lat="42.759538" lon="10.262065"><ele>116.94</ele><time>2010-06-01T14:00:02Z</time></trkpt>
<trkpt lat="42.759516" lon="10.262155"><ele>118.38</ele><time>2010-06-01T14:00:06Z</time></trkpt>
<trkpt lat="42.759632" lon="10.262459"><ele>119.82</ele><time>2010-06-01T14:00:20Z</time></trkpt>
<trkpt lat="42.759830" lon="10.262625"><ele>122.71</ele><time>2010-06-01T14:00:32Z</time></trkpt>
While climbing up that steep hill, suddenly after 2010-06-01T14:01:09Z (7th row above), the next waypoint was recorded at 2010-06-01T13:59:56Z - 73 seconds earlier instead of 15 seconds later! But otherwise the record just looks fine, and I cannot remember that I felt anything special during that time travel.
Oh dear, hardly anyone gets such a chance once in a live time, and I did not note it when it happened!
Regards,
Bernhard
