Default Analog clock?-Why no Digital.

Anyone wishing to get the digital back. There is a digital clock associated with the GPS but I wish it could be displayed.

The analog's ok but I wish they had done it in a way so that it was synchronized to the GPS clock available in the NAV unit.

I like the analog clock. Adds some additional class to the interior.

Having that analog clock in the middle isn't a problem. Its a nice touch to the car and it looks good. What is a problem is having no digital clock. If you wanna see what time it is you've got to look at that analog clock or look at your phone

I've seen a digital clock in the settings messing around and stuff but theres no way you can permanently have one on your screen

It would be nice to have a digital clock in the display between the gauges in front of you. It would keep you from taking your eyes off the road to check the clock on the center of the dash. A digital clock in the HUD would be even better.....and safer.

Analog are nice! Classic look = Luxury. I do agree a digital clock in addition = Happiness for GS owners. Speaking for all...

Analog guages are typically found in performance cars so I think it works nicely for this application.

This makes no sense. The analog clock tells time...so if you want to know what time it is...looking at the analog clock tells you the time so why would you have to look at your phone? Why do you need two clocks? I have a grandfather clock in my hallway...when I walk by it and see the time I don't feel a need to corroborate that time with my phone because the clock is analog.

Many people in the world, myself included have watches that are analog...and we can tell time on them. I learned how in kindergarden How did the world ever survive before digital clocks?

Yes,I think the younger generation always had digital clocks and an analog takes them a second or two to tell the time.
