    There shouldn't be one. Try setting the year to 2003 instead of just
    03.

    When I run the setup of the machine, it ask for Date/Time and the Date is in
    mm/dd/yy format. I have tried "03" or "2003" for the year, but it does not
    accept.

    Do you know how I can overcome this?

    Hmm. That's really odd. I just used Setup to change the date on my
    Omnigo, and it accepted "9/3/2003" (tomorrow's date) just fine. Then I
    changed it back to "9/2/2003" and again no complaints.

    What does it say when you type in a date of, say, "9/2/2003"?

    Pretend it works.

    Hi!

    Have you tried setting the actual date with the year 1999 and then
    later changing the year to 2003? (Unfortunately the batteries of my
    OGO120 are empty, so I can't test anything.)

    With my German OmniGo I never had a problem.
    it run out of batteries several times since 2000 and it always accepted
    the date.

    Try a SHIFT- ON - NEXT
    Then in SETUP enter everything the default way, like 01/15/95. Then change
    to 01/15/2003 .Then in DATE FORMAT change to desired format. That should do
    it.
    I also use the DD/MM/YY format without any problems untill now. I have
    everything important ( to me ) on a CF card however.
