That would be awesome and makes a lot of sense. Now a days even the clocks on TV and DVD players and phones update automatically. Why not our cars.

Haven't found any other electrical/tech issues as of yet.
The clock loses time because mft is a poorly programmed pos. There is currently no real fix, although in the next version of the software it looks like they have an option of turning off sync with the erratic gps. Hopefully it comes out sooner rather than later.

If I am not mistaken, you can do this (turn off the time sync with the gps) in MFT since the v 2.11 (I had the car with this version before going to 3).

Have you been to the dealer to see if this can be adjusted? Our Ford In-Vehicle Technology rep, Jaclyn, may be able to assist further. Be sure to shoot her a PM: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/member.php?u=87765.

Hey everyone -

Sweet idea! Please submit this suggestion on our Ford Social site: http://social.ford.com/. If you all have questions about this tech, please reach our IVT rep here: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/member.php?u=87765.

In the meantime, please look at our online owner's manuals for more info: https://owner.ford.com/servlet/Conte...OwnerGuidePage.

Have a good hump day,

Thomas

Here I am, Thomas, you beat me to the punch! ;)

Hi everyone -

For those of you with a navigation system, make sure GPS Synchronization is turned on.

To do so, press the clock and select ON for GPS TIME SYNCHRONIZATION.

If this issue persists, and for those of you without navigation, I recommend having your dealership further investigate.

Jaclyn

My car is going into the dealership tonight for this issue. This will be the second time. I have been trying to do some self trouble shooting. It was fixed the last time untill the maintenance update occured. Now at 4:00 pm my time the calendar catches up. That means the caledar is 16 hours behind. It has something to do with the am and pm setting on the clock. I will update you more after I get my car back from the dealership. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

I had an APIM replacement back in early June for other MFT issues, not the clock thing. Didn't do anything for my problem but hopefully it will work for yours. Report back your results. If it works, some of the others on here with the same problem may finally have an option for a fix.
