Lightbulb Time to set the clocks back....but how??

OK, so I go to set my clock back and in setup/clock the time settings are greyed back. Can anyone advise how to set the time? I cannot find anything online. I checked the infotainment manual and it says should be able to set it under setup/clock...no luck.

It's in settings. Toggle daylight savings to off.

The book is pretty much useless on this. It says to use the 'tune' knob to do this and all that does is change the radio channels.

Anyway, with ignition on, just press the Setup button, press the 'Clock' icon then press the Daylight Savings Time icon to Off.

There have been 12 to 15 major ice ages. They all receded...and I'll bet there wasn't a single smokestack or SUV in sight...

Amazing that this functionality is not automatic on a GPS based info system... It is on most of my $40 gadgets in my house, phones, tablets, computers, digital timers, alarm clock, etc... But on my $50K car, I have to remove the DST manually. Makes you wonder.

GPS time doesn't contain any information about Daylight Saving time. The devices that use GPS time have to be programmed to change based on date and location. And since the dates for Daylight Saving time can and have changed, it usually isn't incorporated in devices that don't get regular software updates.

Cell phones get their time from the cell network which is where the time adjustments take place. Tablets usually ger thier time from an internet time server or have the change programmed in software. Computers get their time through the internet and the change is programmed in the OS. When the dates changed a few years back, Microsoft had to issue patches so the time would automatically adjust properly.

"it usually isn't incorporated in devices that don't get regular software updates."

That explains it. Makes sense. Thanks.

Go to the settings and hit clock and turn off daylight savings time ... then your clock will turn back one hr ... when daylight savngs time is over .. put it back and it will go forward an hour .. took me half a day to figure that one out !!
