Set the clock

The first time you use the car, or if the current to the car's battery has been cut, you may have to make time and date settings. It is important that the clock is set, in order to connect to the internet among other things.

Time and date settings

Select SettingsSystemDate and Time in the center display's top view to change the settings for the time and date format.

Adjust the time and date by pressing the arrows up or down on the touch screen.

Automatic time for cars with GPS

If your car is equipped with a navigation system you can choose Auto Time. The time zone is adjusted automatically depending on where the car is. For certain types of navigation systems, the current location (country) must also be set to obtain the correct time zone. If Auto Time is not selected, the time and date are adjusted with the arrows up or down on the touch screen.

Summer time

In some countries it is possible to select automatic setting of summertime with Auto. For other countries, summer time can be set with On or Off.
