Press the buttons on the left side of the steering wheel until you get to settings, press the arrows on the left side until you get to time, set the time and confirm by pressing the trip reset button

One of your multifunction display (speedo) choices is to synch the dash clock with COMAND. This is the best way to do it.

I use the COMMAND as well. You can set the clock by pressing the service button and you should see the date/time as an option, or you could check the owners manual if you don't have the button or it's different than mine..

The clock will sync based upon the command time (which the time does not show in the corner of my command, PITA)..

That is the best way to do it. The clock will magically start spinning its hands
to the correct time that has been set in the COMAND.

Just set the Hour

The trick on setting the time is to ONLY SET THE HOUR.

The GPS system in Command knows the minute, but does not know the hour. (It is going to have to be reset after every daylight saving time change.) After you set the hour go thrugh the steps to let the system to autosync as previously described and it will do the rest.

If you try and set the dashboard clock maually (or set the dash clock a few minutes fast) it will not sync.
