Anybody having a problem with their 2012 clocks being too slow? We reset it weekly, and by the end of the week, it's 2 minutes behind consistently. Just curious.

All jk clocks seam to be that way. It's just a jeep thing. Now you understand! But if you get the nav like I have in my jk, the clock is always dead on and even changes when you enter a new time zone. And changes for DST also. Gets it all from the GPS. Nav is worth every cent, and is smarter then all men and most women.

thanks 4fit. For some reason I never bothere searching the forums first. Is this a warranty problem that the dealer can take care of, or just something that you deal with?

Several on here have had new clocks ( radioes) put in under warranty and the new one does the same thing. A factory nav or aftermarket radio may be the only fix. Kinda sucks though. I have a 05 F250 that looses about a minute a month. So I correct every now and then or when I have to change it every 6 month anyway due to the stupid DST crap. A minute a month is not that big of a deal, and I don't drive it much anyway.

It's not just the 12s. Several threads on this. Mine loses about 5 minutes every couple weeks.
That is a lot to be off. But it's only time, I generally don't care what time it is. It is usually daytime or nighttime and you can usually tell without a clock!

Interesting. I just noticed the other day that my clock was 5 minutes slow. I reset it but haven't driven it in 3 days, so I'm not sure if it has fallen behind again.

I have the RHB-430, but from one of the earlier posts, it seems this only affects the non-nav units?

I think there is a setting in the time section that lets you set the clock manually or set it to satellite time and it does it all itself, like reseting when you move to a different time zone. I think I have the RHB-430 in my 11 also.
