Daylight saving clock change


Recommended Posts

Hi all,  Spring has sprung and here we are ready to change all of our clocks again.  I have already sorted the manual clock on the dash but I can't figure out how to change the clock in the satnav (the one that predicts your arrival time).  Last summer I had it run an hour behind until they went back again in the autumn.  I have tried the manual suggestions of menu>Settings>General>System Time but there is no 'System Time' on mine. Or time or anything that implies time!

Can anyone point me in the right direction, please?  I tried a search on here and YouTube but what I did find didn't work.  😞

Satellite navigation works on a time base so when it talks of "system time" I would imagine it's referring to the satellite time. Everything should be automatic in regard to the 'navigation time' - the satellites can't be wrong or all hell would break loose.

Hi Herbs, it didn't change automatically last year hence attempting to do it manually this year.  The manual says select Set Up>General>System time and change to daylight saving.  But mine doesn't have the System Time option.  It doesn't do it automatically.  Last year I forgot and got to places late thinking I was well in time! 😞

There is a confusing setting, Daylight Saving on/off. Adjust this. It does not turn on automatic daylight saving on or off but adds or removes an hour.

Hi Paul, this is what I am saying.  My car does NOT have this!  All online and the manual says this. 😞

Can you take a picture of the Settings screen, showing what you do have listed?

In the manual it says go into Set up then General and then there is a tab for either clock or system time above the language.  I have scrolled completely through this last one and there is no 'Clock' or 'System Time'

Curious, your menu structure doesn't resemble that in the handbook? Not just the time setting but the order of other, common, settings.

Which type of mutimedia system do you have?

Interesting question!  I assumed standard for the model.  Is there a way to find this out from the car info?

Sorted!

I can't believe how crazy this has been.  On my system, whatever system it happens to be, I go into <SETUP>  <NAVIGATION> and there is a SYSTEM TIME tab!

Maybe I have been a little dense here but I wouldn't have imagined having to go through navigation to get the the clock settings!

Done now anyway so thanks to all who tried to help.  I really appreciate your support.

I have also gone through multiple menus trying to find settings that intuitively one would expect elsewhere. 

Glad it's sorted, for 7 months anyway! 🤣 👍

Hopefully I'll remember where it is then and sort it in a minute. 🙂

I'm sure it's because the navigation system gets its time signals from the satellites.

now let's turn to my 2006  Honda Legend too .......... been running on the now updated time since last autumn when it wouldn't auto change ....  it used to in years past ok ........ Car Manual is great but doesn't solve my problem ..  Main Dealer might charge £180 ( incl Vat ? ) to sort it so I'll live with it all for now whatever .........  thankfully my old and ancient Mk3 Ls400 is just a manual simple push of the digits ......  now how's me arthritis in me fingers this cold wet Kent morning :unsure:

That’s because you are just setting the time on the navigation system.  This time is only used to set the time of arrival at your destination and it can’t get this from the satellite as the satellite didn’t know what time zone you are in. 
 

glad it’s sorted now.

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
