Here is my twice a year reminder

Daylight Savings time starts Sunday March 11th 2 am for those that participate. Spring ahead 1 hour.

In Europe it's 1 am, 28th March.


top is for audio 20 and below that is for Comand

Setting the time
This function is only available in vehicles with
audio system.

Move the selection marker with button
+ or - to the Time/Date submenu.
Press button Up arrow or down arrow repeatedly until
the message Time-Hours.
Press R To Confirm or Time-Minute(s)
Press R To Confirm appears in the multifunction display.
The selection marker is on the current setting
Press button + or - to set the hours
or minute(s).
Press reset button R to confirm.



Vehicles with COMAND ngt 2.5 system:

Setting the Time Zone and Switching
Between Daylight Saving Time and
Standard Time
The correct time zone and daylight
saving/standard time must be set for the
following navigation system functions to
operate correctly:

Time stamps for calls received and calls
dialed

To set the time zone: Select System
Time -Time Zone.
A time zone list appears.
The dot indicates the current setting.
Press down or up arrow to select the

for Comand 2.0

There is no automatic change from standard to daylight savings time and back.
This has to be changed manually

From ETYU (Eddy):

For COMAND NGT 2.0 or pre-facelift R171 (presuming Sync with Head Unit has been enabled in the MFD menu, so the analog clock will sync with COMAND head unit when the date/time has been changed in the COMAND unit):

Press SERV to call up System menu
Press Time (soft key), Date/Time setting menu appears
Use < or > to select the hours/minutes that one wishes to change (selected item will be highlighted in darker colour)
Press ▲ or ▼ to set the hour/minute
Press Back (soft key) or wait for screen to change

Watch and enjoy the movement of the hands on the analog clock move to the newly set time.

Date can only be set if GPS reception is available (for those who are doing the change around midnight local time).

For R172:

Adjusting the time zone and switching
to Daylight Savings Time (Summer)
Press system
Select Time by turning the COMAND
controller and press to confirm.
Select Time Zone and press to confirm.
A list of countries or time zones appears.
The dot indicates the current setting.
Select the country or time zone by turning
the COMAND controller and press
to confirm.
A time zone list may also be displayed,
depending on the country selected.
Select the time zone and press
to confirm.
The entry for the Automatic Time Set‐
tings is accepted.


If none of this is clear, get out your owner's or Comand manual for goodness sake!

And that changes the dash analog clock as well the two digital times (all three at the same time)? First time doing this is why I ask.

Good question. Please R172 owners, consult your manual and let me/us know so I can add it to the thread. Thanks :D

Ah - progress!


For the R170, pull the instrument panel clock setting knob. Turn anti-clockwise to set hours or clockwise to set minutes, then release.

Did you remember to put your clocks back?

Hi All, just a quick question, Did you remember to set your clocks back one hour, we did ours on Saturday prior to travelling to the Donnington Park Brekkie meet.
Got a bit of a surprise when we got in the car Sunday morning to drive over and discovered the the clock was in fact back two hrs.
Appears the clever little monkey was already prepared to turn itself back one hour all on it`s own.

Our question is HOW did it do it, we only have the basic Audio 20 radio fitted, no sat nav etc.

We can only think after chatting with Dave that is was the radio station RDS signal that changed the time. R)

My COMAND system (does not have NAV) automatically adjusts the clock for daylight savings time. It just does it on the wrong date as the firmware has not been updated since the date of manufacture (2004). Instead of changing the time this coming weekend (early morning Sunday, November 6th) it adjusted the time this past Sunday, October 30th. Therefore, for the next week the clock will not be correct. Same issue in the spring, but not a real big deal as the car does not get driven daily.

Mine has Nav but still does not adjust automatically.
I have to change for summer/winter

That's what I gathered from this thread but then realized mine does, in fact, change (had not really thought much about it before). There must be a setting in DAS that switches on the automatic time adjustment. Maybe Sean, our resident DAS guru, can clarify this issue.

My manual r172 <55> says I have automatic DST (I have NAV) when selected . Guess I'll find out next Sunday (even though she'll be in hibernation for the winter :frown: )
