I’ve been doing some checking and it seems the solar noon tag is wrong. For the past several months its always landed somewhere around 11:46 to 11:56 and some days it goes up, others it goes down. When I do a search for todays solar noon for my Lon/Lat it says it should be 12:22:55 for Jan 16th, my tag says 11:52am. Could you look at that tag sometime when you have time Brian? Thanks
Brians latest update (N build 26)seems to have fixed the solar noon tag for me. It was displaying 11:51 ± 5 mins every day and now it’s very close to the calculated solar noon I’ve found on the web. Should work well now.

Brian changed the zip file again and it seems to be working now, Mine has stayed at the same time all day and it’s within a minute or two of the values on the lookup websites. Download the latest zip update and try it.
