If the Clock Time or CT setting on your car stereo is set to ON, your device automatically displays the current time using Radio Data System (RDS)  information.

Note:

  • Not all radio stations transmit RDS data.
  • Accuracy of RDS data varies by station, and the clock time is not guaranteed to be accurate.

If the clock doesn't display the current time accurately, or if you don't want to receive current time through RDS, set Clock Time or CT to OFF, and set the time manually.
