2009 Nissan 370Z Touring: Non-Syncro TimeMatch

June 29, 2009

As with my colleague Mr. Takahashi, I enjoy rev-matching on my own, but like him still have to admit that the Z's Syncro RevMatch is pretty cool.

But if Nissan can offer this ground-breaking technology, why don't they have what I'll call Syncro TimeMatch? I'm talking about the two time displays (a stand-alone clock in the upper pod and one in the nav/audio screen) that aren't matched. I've seen other cars with redundant time displays (VW and Audi come to mind) that are synchronized so this strikes me as rather odd here. And yes, I adjusted the clock after I posted this gripe...
