Everythings fine... But the clock
We have an SEL with MFT and several time a week we need to reset the clock. I'd think in todays age the clock could set itself. Anybody have any ideas as to why our clock keeps losing time?

Haven't found any other electrical/tech issues as of yet.

I'd also like to see any responses to this, since I have been having the same thing happen with the clock on my MFT in my Focus Ti.

Not sure without getting on syncmyride, but I did the available update over the holidays and the clock is still acting up.

I had my MFT software updated after I picked up my car in June.. I think it was updated in August if I remember correctly, so whatever version that was... I forget what its called lol.

You would think a reliable clock would be easy, but mine goes in spurts where it will reset everyday, and then will be OK for the rest of the month.

I am on the newest MFT software, they say it's another one of it's glitches until the new version comes out. Sigh.....

They better make sure the new version is right because they are holding it up to "savior" status.

ok thats what I was afraid of. Isnt there supposed to be a major revision coming out soon like 3.0 or something?

I guess thats what you get for allowing Microsoft to have individual people working on lines of code without communicating with each other.

I personally would like to try and install android 4.0 in place of MFT... open source and Android SDK ftw.

This is an issue that is specifically mentioned as being fixed when we get our new software over the next few months. Mine has done the same thing twice but it hasn't happened in a while. I think it happens when the system maintenance borks itself. I agree that its pretty silly.

Happens to me too. Not often but it's irksome nonetheless. A $23,000 watch that can't keep time! LOL

Go into settings and have the clock auto-set according to GPS, make sure your Daylight Savings Time setting is correct, and voila! My clock no longer loses time. Fixed this like 3 days into owning it.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 04:46 PM.
