2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged: Time Check

March 11, 2013

2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged

Our Jaguar XF is running a few minutes behind real time. I can't have the clock telling me I have three more minutes than I actually have. Time is important.

So, I looked in the manual to see if there was some super special premium Jaguar way to adjust the clock. But the only mention of the clock was how to clean the screen.

So, I touched the time with my finger and voila. The clock settings came right up.

Now we'll see if the XF adjusts itself automatically to Daylight Saving Time on Sunday.

On a side note, if you look at the vent in the picture above, you can see the word "Jaguar" written on the vent adjuster. I love little details like this.

    The clock in my 2008 XKR loses time, too. You would think with a satnav in the car that would not happen.

    My 2008 Acura uses the GPS signal from the satnav to adjust the time. I had assumed all modern cars did this now. Guess not.
