My clock came back today, but the date is reading 31DEC2000. I had to adjust the time manually. Pressing GPS gives a false time.

Guess I'll join the club, battery died 2 weeks ago due to the cold, got another battery and lost the time like everyone else here. Weird because I have disconnected the battery multiple times over the last summer without issue, now this happens.

My customer just told me her clock came back by itself! Knew it was a satellite problem!
:bigroll:

Try disconnecting the battery again and see how long it takes the clock to come back. And did she check the date? And is the Nav locking on quickly like before (no one has answered this yet).

I am finding it hard to believe that some people just think the multi-billion dollar GPS network had a problem that they finally fixed after a few months. But wait, there was nothing on the news, and wait, this problem with the GPS network only affected Denso consumer devices. That's one specific problem.

Don't you think it's more likely that some are getting the clock back because a software routine timed out in the Denso unit. And they still aren't working right. The date is wrong and people are having to set the clock manually because the time from GPS is being interpreted incorectly. But maybe the US Government hasn't fully fixed the problem that only affects Denso Nav units. They are really slow.

Have you disconnected your battery yet? When you do so, tell us how much you like having a nav unit in the center dash that has a clock that doesn't work because of a firmware issue that is/will affect a few hundred thousand vehicles.

My dealer said they had a bulletin from Cadillac which said, “Cadillac engineering is aware of the problem and is researching a fix, will notify when fix is available.”
