This is a very basic question. I'm writing a procedure to synchronize data between a local sqlite table and remote MS SQL table. I was going to use the GMT formatter to convert the device local time to GMT to have a fixed reference point. There are some steps that would be unnecessary if the Ticks value you get from DateTIme.Now is based on GMT.

All that to ask: Is the tick value returned by DateTime.Now based on GMT or is it based on the device time zone?
