2004 Ls430 Nav Calendar Is Wrong!

Recommended Posts

I live in the Pacific(Calif) timezone and when it's past 4pm, my calendar on the Nav display tells me it's the next day! I'm told that this is a Lexus issue in that the calendar uses GMT time even though the clock adjusts for Pacific time. Anyone else notice this?

Not the case on my ES300, but I will check my dads 04 LS when I get a chance...

I noted this on my 2004 Lexus LS with NAV. My understanding is that the time is in conjunction with the date and time set on GPS system.

That's interesting. Is the GPS clock different than the clock above the console? My clock displays the correct time and if I go into "Set Clock", it is set for the correct timezone. So if the calendar is getting it's timeset using the GPS system(which is probably GMT), then it's not adjusting for local time. This may not be an easy fix for Lexus. I'll let you know, but I am somewhat amazed that no one else has noticed this. Maybe that's why Lexus is being very slow. Like the ES300 tranny hesitation...

You can manually override the time so it appears the right time on the clock console but I do not think we can overide the date. I have ask my selling dealer and they have not even noticed this. They will check on it when I bring it in for my one month service.

Every time I set it to automatic it goes right back to the set time on the GPS system. I have read the NAV manual but does not even touch on this topic.

Keep us informed Lexuskrzy. The 2003 doesn't have this problem. Maybe a batch of Navs snuck in from the UK! By the way, how do you see the GPS clock? And what exactly do you mean by "...set it to automatic..."?

Well the 2003 and 2004 navs are a completely different system, different manufacturer etc.

Tried this on my dad's and sure enough, its the same way.
