Question How to set the clock?

I know this is trivial, but I am a new Commander owner (3 whole days now) and I can't figure out how to set the clock on my '06 Limited with Nav head unit installed. I know I could have easily called the dealership and got my answer but I am a new member on this site and thought I would throw this out and get my feet wet on this forum. So far I have really enjoyed reading these threads, thanks for all the great info! Paul

Re: Nav Unit Clock programming

Paul welcome to the group.

As far as setting the clock with the Nav unit, look at your navigation manual to set the clock. I had to reset our clock after the time change this weekend (the clock was on the wrong time zone so hopefully it's just a 1 time change). After staring at the owners manual I finally figured out that you have look at the navigation system to make the change.

If I recall you just hit the Navigation button and scroll down to system settings. From there you will select clock settings or something like that.

Enjoy the new ride.
Jeff

Re: Nav Unit Clock programming

Thanks Jeff, I looked at the owners manual and they only gave the directions for the units without NAV. Your suggestion sounds logical to me, I will give it a try.

Thanks! Paul

Re: Nav Unit Clock programming

Once you get to the system settings as Jeff suggests you need to set the clock then scroll down and hit the done button. I may be slow, but it took me a while to figure that out

You recall correct, that is how you change it. The time zone is a one time set, unless you move or the radio loses power for whatever reason, battery change for example. Daylight savings time is also changed in the same screen, I believe it is the next selection below the time zone and I dont think it changes automatically.

Re: Nav Unit Clock programming

Yes, the REC radio clock is controlled by menu selection.

I suggest choosing "USE GPS TIME". This keeps the minutes accurate via the GPS signals.

Once you set the time, using the check-box for DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME allows you to move forward and backward each Spring and Fall easily.

Man, you are right. It is silly. But it is even crazier when in your state but happen to be spending the night on the Navajo nation when the time changes. The Navajo res was on Daylight Savings but AZ was not. I finally got it straight. You live in a beautiful state by the way and my Commander was flawless on a four thousand plus mile trip.

My Owner's Manual does state to see the Nav Manual for clock setting. It does seem that with GPS the clock should automatically change back and forth for Daylight Savings as my computer and VCR do.

How to set the clock?

I have an '06 Limited with the 6-disk changer, NAV and rear entertainment system.

How do I set the clock on the radio? The owner's manual says to start by pushing the 'time' button but my radio doesn't have a 'time' button.

Thanks,
Dave
