Hey, Clemenza -

The system maintenance screen occurs when the SYNC module determines the current amount of data usage is degrading its performance, and a reboot will re-optimize the system.

Some users may experience the reboot every day, whereas, others may never see it. It also depends on several factors, such as:

• If you have the Navigation option and how much you use it.
• How many devices you plug in on a daily basis (i.e. iPod, MP3 player, cell phone, etc.).
• Which version of software you have on your MFT.
• Which cell phone/carrier you have and how many applications you have running in the background.

I hope this helps to clarify!

In regards to the clock, is your vehicle equipped with a navigation system?
