GPS: Global Position, but no local time

My GPS — a TomTom Go920 — is one of the most advanced GPS devices I have seen, tried, and had. It’s very good at showing me how to get places, the interface is — mostly — pretty straightforward, and it can do a lot more (like play MP3 music, even broadcast it over FM to the radio; store and show pictures; much more).

But. The most ridiculous thing about it:  how come a GPS, who always knows where it is, cannot tell that the local time has changed to (or from) daylight saving? My old Palm does it automatically. Most other modern — and not so modern — devices do too. Not the GPS.
