Do we need to do anything tonight to change our clocks?

:nerd: And if so, HOW on the Touring?

Thanks.

You shouldn't need to adjust the clock, as it is automatically updated through the audio system (fin antenna).

However, if you want to change the time or date manually, see page 164-165 of the Owners Manual for instructions (attached).

Just out of curiosity... How does the Honda Insight check for time? Wifi? GPS receiver? Also does it change time zone automatically if you were to drive into another time zone?

I think it’s GPS. Mine changed immediately when crossing into different time zones on my recent trip to the SW. way faster than my phone did.

Confirming that GPS is the source. Per manual: "The clock setting is automatically updated based on your GPS location." If you're driving near a time zone border, the manual warns that a frequent automatic update may occur forward/backward by an hour due to proximity.

"Automatic Time Zone - ON" (circled blue in attachment) is a default setting, as is "Auto Daylight Saving Time - ON."

I have an LX and had to manually set the clock to Daylight Savings Time. At least it was easy to do.

Does Sirius XM require the GPS receiver to work? Seems kind of odd the EX has a GPS receiver(for time) with no navigation functionality but the LX doesn't (I assume not since @BILLBOGEY had to adjust the clock manually).

There was mention in this forum and Civic forums about using the Insight fin antenna to add navigation. It's not fully "cracked" but potential/possible based on the GPS antenna: https://www.gen3insight.com/forum/290-honda-insight-user-interface/422-look-what-i-discovered-service-menu-2.html

Models with "color audio" (LX) don't have daylight savings time as an option (pp 359-365). Only models with "display audio" (EX, Touring) have the "extra" options including daylight savings time and auto-time zone (pp 366-367).
