    Not sure there is anything you can do. But I am wondering why this is an issue?

    just seems kind of redundant, with clock right above it. manual shows procedure to remove it, but radio doesn't have clock icon button.

    It would bother me too. Nitpicking, but I have a pet peeve when I see an after market HU displaying the time, and there's a clock a few inches away on the dashboard. Just looks goofy to me. Seeing it on a stock HU would have the same effect.

    The radio clock is a lot more accurate than the clock on the dash.

    Both of my clocks are dead accurate...
    Neither one gains or loses time...
    But for ME...the digital one is easier to read QUICKLY and know if it is 10:22 or 10:24.
    I like to know EXACTLY what time it is and not have to stare at the one in the dash for 2 or 3 seconds figuring out EXACTLY what time it is.

    I look at the digital one first... 99% of the time.

    thanks for the response everyone. maybe my next one will have correct info in manual. my 2004 had cadillac logo on screen, with radio off. this looked much better than digital readout for time.
