    Clock and Falling Back

    FYI to all - I pulled out 3 different cars' manuals yesterday to do the semi-annual thing of changing the clock. For the SRX, look on page 3-81 of your manual - don't bother looking in the index at the rear under "clock" or "setting time" or anything related, because you won't find anything remotely close that will tell you where to go. And you'd better know that the thing in the middle is called the DIC or Driver's Information Center and when you find it and then look up Clock, then it tells you to go to page 3-81 - so I'm telling you now! In fact, here is the procedure:

    Setting the Time
    1. Press the TUNE/SEL knob to enter the main menu.
    2. Turn the TUNE/SEL knob until SET CLOCK
    appears on the display.
    3. Press the TUNE/SEL knob to select SET CLOCK.
    4. Turn the TUNE/SEL knob to adjust the time.
    5. Press the TUNE/SEL knob to update the time.
    VEHICLE TIME UPDATED will appear on the
    display.
    If the CLOCK/RADIO DISP is configured into one of the
    configurable keys, pressing the key will switch the
    display between the radio station frequency and the
    time. See “Configurable Radio Display Keys” under
    Radio with CD on page 3-82 for more information on
    configuring the keys.

    On my 09' you just push the button under the clock!

    You guys with <07's have digital clocks?

    I wish I had one!

    Actaully, I do now - - my Garmin Nuvi has one, and I never have to set it!

    Those are the kind I like - never set or something intuitive. My SL500 has a stalk you pull out and turn left or right and the clock hands move forward or backwards - easy - the CLK500 is at least as bad as the SRX - you have to push this button to find that menu, push that button to get to the clock, push the other button again to highlight the hour, push the other button to set the hour, then confirm with the stalk on the dash - a definite must read every six months!

    I think with a Ford, you just yell at it!

    "TIME"

    "SET"

    "HOUR"

    (State a number one hour back from current)

    "SAVE"



    Actually - - I have no idea if that works like that or not. but if I were a programmer working on the Sync I would have done something like that

    I do wonder why Auto Makers don't do the same as many of the clock companies do! Automatic Clocks! I have a clock on the wall of my office, and one on my desk that I Never Ever have to set. They get some master signal from some far away place that tells them what time it is. I had to program the time zone when I set them up, and that was it.


    All GM products connect to Onstar - - and Onstar can definitely update the clock.

    Any car with GPS, has the ability to pull the accurate time off of the GPS System.

    But then, that would require probably 75 cents per car in development, which would eat into the products profitability.

    I know people who have never set the clock in their car, they just either don't look at it, or just know to add 3 hours and 19 minutes to get the real time!

    My Step-Mother never sets the clocks on her electronics in her home - - they are always blinking. The clock in her car is always wrong as well.

    Some people live by the clock... and some live by the sun. and others have no clue what time it is, or care!

    Such is life.
