GLC Digital Clock Slow?

I noticed that the digital clock for my GLC is always running slower within 1-2 weeks of reseting it. I keep needing to reset the time to get it up to current time. Kind of frustrating that GLC cannot do a simple job that a $10 kid's plastic watch can do!

Anyone else experienced the same thing?

Never heard that complaint before. In this digital age wouldn't it make sense if the clock updated itself either from the GPS signal or your internet connection?

Mine keeps correct time and auto adjusts when the clocks go forward in the UK, had to be manually adjusted on Discovery sport.

The clock in the GLC uses GPS to set the time automatically. Mine also corrects automatically for DST, but I'm not sure if this feature is universal or country specific.

Your clock should not be losing time. A call or visit to the dealer is warranted.

I had the same thoughts too. But my GLC is the basic AUDIO 20 without navigation. So I am not sure if GPS signal will help and from what I understand, GPS only helps with setting the DST?

I have not been able to connect my GLC to the internet via my phone's Bluetooth connection yet. So I don't think that is a cause of the time losing?

Whereas my Samsung Galacy S7 edge's time is always correcr up to thw second as it is set to auto time.

Same issue. I notice my GLC with audio 20 is around 5 mins off (comparing to my iPhone). My wife also said that she notice this before.

Hi guys, any updates from the service center with regards to the clock losing time?
i brought this issue up with the dealer and they are saying that they are waiting for a update on the command system to fix it.
Mine is the audio 20 without navigation... so im not really sure how that is going to be fixed and its driving me up the wall.....

Try checking to confirm the automatic time adjustment is set to either "on" or "off" depending on your area and your preference. I am in the US and keep automatic time/date turned on, and mine keeps time accurately. Press the Vehicle button, tip the controller rearward to show the menu, and then select "time." HTH

I purchased W205 last December 17. I discovered the digital clock slowing down in Jan 18 and so I feedback to Sales Person (Authorised Dealer). She advised me the updated solution will be ready in Apr 18. So, I followed up with her in May 18 and she replied me that the software yet to ready. Till now, it has passed 7 months and the defective of the software yet to be solved. It really pissed me off.
From car forum, I found it is a known problem. They should sort out the affected car instead of deliver the car as it is without checking to client.
I felt very disappointed for services from Authorised Dealer.

I am having a similar problem. When I left my house this morning the clock on the radio did not increment during my entire drive. The clock on the instrument cluster does keep accurate minutes but the hour is off by one hour. 2019 GLC, took delivery last week.

My dealership asked me to bring it in and have the radio reprogrammed. I haven't had a chance to do it yet, but will soon.

I noticed the date in my radio says the year1999.
