Just looked at a friends Mazda2, and the digital display time has not accommodated DST … I went into the settings and put the time one hour forward BUT the display keeps reverting back to Standard Time, viz. an hour back.

 

There does not appear to be a Save or Click/Tap icon, so assumed after changing time it would stay as set, but no.

 

Anyone got thoughts or similar vehicle to assist please?

Is it linked to the car GPS in one of the other settings?
That's what our Ford Focus does. So had to tell it DST had started.

We have a Mazda 3.  It updates automatically. Possibly from GPS or WiFi?

Radio sat/RDS can have a use station time setting too. Causes things to go haywire in CHC when you move to secondary coverage areas like Sumner or the tunnel :)

i'd bet you it's the GPS.

 

 

 

my mazda doesnt have the gps so it's real easy to change.

 

Family member has the same car but with the gps kit... they cornered me one day and asked me to fix it.

 

 

 

I admit, it had me stumped at first... i had no idea the gps was being used for time. Unlike every other device that blanks out the modify time buttons when it's on gps mode, It doesnt - much frustration was expressed that day with this fact.

 

 

 

 

 

You have to go into the navigation and change the DST/Timezone settings to be correct.

I never thought of the GPS system because he never has it turned on/loaded.

 

Will try that … thanks all.

is hidden under the navigation app.

 

 

 

my next question would be though is, how do you change the settings if you take the sd card out?

 

Does it stop updating the clock from gps then? i suspect not...
