Wow, what can go wrong, will go wrong.  Upon arriving in AZ, I set both the cameras and the Garmin to local time, unchecked
Daylight savings time on the GPS, synched the cameras within seconds, took a photo of the clock on the GPS to use for matching
the camera time EXIF with the II GPS synch option.  3 days later I had a big track log and 3 4 gig cards.  The first card, with the photo
of the clock was garbled, and I had to use ImageRescue to get the files.  That program killed the EXIF /XPM data, leaving me with just
tifs and no data.  Now I have no GPS data for the files on that card, and no accurate way to verify that the GPS data is time synched correctly.
Real bummer.  What's the best solution here?  2am now, trying to put the pieces together so I have at least my photos, if not full GPS.

Ok, 3am now, but worth the effort.  Turns out the rescue program PhotoRescue is way better than
ImageRescue.  Photorescue will get the RAW files back, whereas PhotoRescue only gives you tifs
with no data.  So I have GPS data for the card that was garbled, except for the one photo of the clock
on the gps so that I could have matched the Camera time and GPS  time on ingestion.  Still pondering
a way to verify that gps data is in synch.

That sounds OK as long as you know that the Garmin was displaying local time, which it sounds like it is. Presumably the display on the Garmin is the same as the display on local clocks.

When you ingest, make sure you tell IIP that the camera is set to Phoenix standard time, and all should be OK.

GPS is available via Canon's Wireless File Transmitter:  40d:  WFT-E3A, 1DMkIII and 1DsMkIII: WFT-E2A, using a separate gps unit, connected by usb.  I use mine on one of my 40d's, and have been very happy with the results, since the coordinates and elevation (meters, with no option to change to feet)  are transferred as part of the metadata into Lightroom  (1.3)
