    Hoping I'm not completely wrong, but I seem to remember that World Clock (included with the 650) displayed a map of the world with daylight/darkness indication.

    My "upgrade" from the 600 didn't go so well, so I ended up deleting a few things manually, and wonder if I didn't inadvertently delete the world map.

    Anyone know where it is, or how I can recover it without having to perform a hard reset or other similar drastic measures?

    (I know, I know, deleting stuff manually *is* drastic....)

    Cannot tell you how you managed that one, but World Clock is in ROM and you cannot delete it... and I don't see an option to hide/display world map... you have an odd situation there.

    Yikes. Make sure you don't leave your location till you get it back. Dont want to get lost, even though it's a small world after all.

    Seriously though, this is a weird one. Might want to try a reset if you haven't tried that yet. Like they said above, it is in ROM so the map is there somewhere.

    I had the same experience. When I first got my Treo 650 it had the map with the shaded representation of day and night. Sometime during the process of moving everything from my Tungsten C the clock program became text only. It's not a big deal, but I would love to understand why and how to get it back. Soft reset doesn't help and I'm not anxious to do a hard reset to find out.

    My guess is that you've installed the Tungsten WorldClock in RAM, taking precedence over the Treo 650 one in ROM. Try deleting it (which will only affect the one in RAM).

    While we're on the subject. My Treo 600 was capable fo showing 6 different citities. This was useful for someone who talks all over the world (amateur radio geek... another subject). I noticed that the World clock on my 650 on has 2 city capability. Bummer! Anyone know if it can be changed to show more than the 2 cities?

    Well - I find World clock in App/Info (64k), but it is not there in App/Delete so I don't know how to delete it. In App/Info there is only one version of World Clock listed and that is version 2.0.1

    Your suggestion sounds good, but I don't know how to do it - and there is no evidence of two versions installed.

    I'm open to other suggestions.

    Thanks,

    You can touch the map on the screen and local times in cities all over the world pop up.

    I use City Time, a great program that shows the world where it's dark and it's light.

    Updated to Verizon 1.03 and.........still plain old text World Clock. In the end, it's not a big deal....but it would be a flash feature to have back again.

    I've seen "Filez" mentioned in other forums a few times. Might that be of any help to me?

    I don't know if that's going to help you with the world clock problem....but, it's alright. Resco Explorer is MUCH better, though...it has a built-in zip utility, and backup utility as well. It's one of the best tools you can buy for your phone.

    Hmm...I got it when it was $12, but it's still worth $15...prolly more, really.

    Has anyone tried these files? Are they both necessary or is this a selection? If so, what is the difference?

    Had the same problem of the disappearing/missing World Clock map on the Treo 650. Used FileProg (you can use FileZ) to delete the following file: locLCusLocationDB.PDB

    The great map came back up! However, I don't know if there are any negative repercussions from eliminating the file.

    Good luck!

    Yes, it worked to me too, thanks!
    I made a backup of this file to card before deleting...
