```Hi II,

got an answer from local support which might be worth to share.
The trick is to convert the date into an AbsoluteTime for the Locator
and back to date if you what to see the new date...
Its working now like I expected.

dl = {DatePlus[#], RandomInteger[{1, 40}]} & /@ (Range[12] * -1)

Manipulate[
DateListPlot[dl, Joined -> True],
Dynamic[{DateList[ p1[[1]] ], p1[[2]]}],
{{p1, {AbsoluteTime[dl[[4]][[1]]], dl[[4]][[2]]}}, Locator}
]
