    Navigation -- how to set clock?

    We just purchased a 2008 CX-9 GT with nav. Tried to set the clock on the upper display and manual leads me to believe we need to do this through the navigation system. I now have the DVD installed and was able to set the clock via settings, but that is not changing the upper display. It is still two hours off.

    Any ideas?

    Why do you want to set the time on navigation and MID (muli-information display)?
    The time from navigation is one of the most accurate time currently available. It is
    accurate within one second from automatic clock. You can only change +/- one hour to
    compensate for DST.

    I know there are people who like to set their clocks 5/10 minutes earlier....
    That is not possible with navigation.

    I'm just looking for the MID to match the correct setting in the Nav system. Right now the MID about two hours off.

    Hmmm. Strange.
    The two times always sync up in my CX9.
    Exactly two hours off?

    Looks like the NAV had to find satellites and orientate itself, after that both the NAV and MID are in sync.

    If you see "GPS" letters at the top-left corner on the NAVI screen, it is picking up GPS signal just fine.
    If not, wait for a couple minutes.

    Hi, I have the same problem on my CX9 2008 with navigation. I am unable to set the time. The gps doesn't show the any time, and the MID shows a random time. It happened after I changed the battery.
