Angry Clock did not change

I just took the M-B out for a short drive and the clock did nothing automatically (I gave it about 5 minutes), so I re-set it manually with the COMAND instructions M-B sent me. I did not turn on the NAV, but if I had this might have been different? I guess I'll now wait and see if anything happens when the rest of the world changes, and presumably, the GPS satellite.

As I feared, mine did not automatically reset either. I had to do it manually, and that was no easy task--very unintuitive. Five minutes of trial and error--mostly error. Even the instructions were not at all clear to me.

Has anyone noticed that the time stamp on our posts is one hour ahead of post time? It seems to think I'm in the EDT zone... Do we have to reset our time here on the board somewhere?

Gee Wizz! For 1992 190E:

"Press knob (for clock adjustment) in and rotate for adjustments".

It is 2:56 pm on my PC clock so I'm checking to see what time is on mine. There is a place to set the time on here, probably in the My Benzworld area.

Yep, works OK. Check My Benzworld -> Edit Options -> DST correction option (very bottom of page).
