Took me a while to figure out how to change
the SLK clocks (COMAND and guage) at last
yr's DST. Between cars, appliances, watches,
clocks, thermostats, PDA's, etc, takes much of
the day finding and changing all of 'em.
Somebody should come up with a bluetooth

I love my SLK, but given its GPS unit and Sirius Radio Receiver, both of which receive perfectly good time codes from the satellites, I wonder why it just doesn't take care of this for me.

Here in the U.K. my clock changed itself.

Which was nice. [:)]

When i picked my car up a couple of weeks ago the clock was already 1 hour fast, so i just left it thinking it would be ok. Then it puts itself forward so it's still 1 hour fast.
Impressed.....i think.

So, European (and maybe Asian?) market SLK's automatically syncronize the time, North American cars do not? Anyone know why that would be?

Probably because the the UK is effectively in one time zone with the same rules. Parts of the US don't observe DST...of course, the code to manage all of this stuff has been in the public domain for at least thirty years...

Yep. Should be easy to do. All you would need is an on/off toggle for DST in the SLK control system and have the clock linked with the Atomic clock in Colorado. [:)]

Where in the manual / which manual?

My manual says There is no automatic switching between Summer time and Winter time. You have to do it manually.

This is in the COMAND manual.
