GPS (276c) and timezones

Anyone know what happens to the clock on GPS's (specifically the 276c) when you ride across a timezone?

Does it change to the correct timezone locally orstay in the timezone you started in? If the clock on the GPS does change, is there a way to keep it from changing?

TIA

The GPS works based on ZULU time. You can manually change the time zones on the 276 (all GPS's?) so the system clock matches your local time.
