Yes, I have searched Sarge! But my clock is always exactly 30 seconds late. In the menu I can adjust it in 30 minutes up and down or without GPS track +/-1 minute, but that doesen´t help very much. Manual does not help either. See pic enclosed.


Any help is highly appreciated.


BTW, my car is by all means always 30 seconds ahead of every thing>:D

cheap crystals have greater tolerances than more expensive ones. Multiply that by XXX cars and well, 30 seconds is of no concern.

It´s the Analog clock below the Speedo.
how do you know it is 30 seconds off? mine does not have a 2nd hand

what does the comand clock say? does it agree with analog clock?

have you had the comand update done?

My analog clock´s big hand (minutes) is exactly 30 seconds late. Comand doesn´t show the time at all.


No update done, but last year this was not an issue.

No, Comand center console does not show the time at all. I do have GPS in it. And, Yes Sir, I can tell when the clock´s big dial hits the minute that it´s late. Listening to the news at 7, the big dail hits "12" 30 seconds late.

Have to check that later, but I am pretty darn shure that when the menu is on "Radio" there is no time shown at all on Comand. When on Nav or Map, I have to check.


Still, the analoge clock is 30 seconds late - no more, no less.

What EDIII says.
It's partly a mechanical clock so I guess the position of the big hand is very slightly off.
I wouldn't worry about it. I would be more worried if one regards these really as an important issue.
As I once read in an article comparing the pros and cons of mechanical watches, "If you really think you need to know the exact time accurate to the second, you do not need a watch but you need to see a doctor......" >:D

Ohhh, I am a perfectionist - that´s why I drive an SLK! And I am not worried, just annoyed:grin: My wrist watch is never ever more than 10 seconds out of sync.


So now I have to sell the car and buy a new one with a correct clock:D Just jokin>:D
