believe theirs an H (hour) & M (minutes) set of buttons located directly above the ac control, underneath the clock display itself. hope this helps out, good luck.

Hi Jason,

I had to laugh at this post; because I felt just like you.

I got out the Owner's Manual & looked it up, and then I felt foolish.

It really is right in front of you,

And come to think of it, the original question

. The answer, on "HOW" to change the time displayed is, push and hold the corresponding Hour (H) or Minute(M) button located on the display, just left and below the clock digital display, until the desired hours, or minutes number(s) are shown then release the button.

Yes, a simple question, easily answered, I just couldn't resist.

The buttons are so small they're really hard to miss. I remember trying to change them via the menu on my navi and then realized the buttons were right below the clock lol

That is always the best place to hide something. Right out in the open, for everyone to see.

You're not the first and won't be the last to ask this question. Besides look how many responses you garnered, all interested to read, knowing we've all been there before.

alternate clock setting method:

+ hours>turn wheels hard right>pump brake pedal for each hour increase
- hours>reverse steps above
+ minutes>place 1/2 full starbucks half caf latte grande in cup holder>turn 1/4 turn clockwise for ea. minute
- minutes> reverse steps above above with foot smashed on the accelerator peddle

if that doesn't work, try the clock setting buttons.
