I stopped at a drive through really quick on my way to work the other day because the clock on my screen said I had enough time. Then as I neared work, I checked my phone and noticed it was about 8 minutes ahead of my car clock! When I set the clock, I use my iPhone time, so I don't know how that happened. I have since reset the clock to be 5 minutes ahead of iphone time, and now it appears to have slowed to only 3 minutes ahead. Has anyone else noticed this?

My 2013 gained a couple minutes. Thought it was supposed to sync with satilite time. But then again it regularly changes the 911 settings.

The clock isn't synchronized with anything.  There is a button to set it from the GPS time, but that's a one-off; it doesn't stay in sync.


Your is pretty egregious, though.  Mine has kept time within a minute for about a year.

Sadly on mine even doing the GPS reset for some reason it stays 2 minutes fast (not counting the DST 1 hour off issue that I just gave up caring about and manually adjust). Aside from that, it does usually maintain that time pretty well.

Yeah, crappy clock, and it should stay synced, just like your cell phone does. I have no idea how that slipped through not being done.
