Clock

Just started messing with mine and wonder if those outside of the US can set the clock to a 24 hour display. All I can get is the AM/PM crap. TIA

clock does seem to run a bit slow though, loosing a couple of minutes each month. I end up adjusting the time at least once a month so I don't get caught out in school zones.

Yep, mine too. It's a bit surprising really, getting a clock to keep time with modern electronics is pretty basic stuff...

I have the 24H Format and want to change it, but don't know how. Does this varies from Region or can I request the dealer to flash it with 12H Format?

Must be a regional thing, I'm sure the dealer could flash it to display the 12h format at your next service. I'm not that fussed, but would prefer 24h if I had the choice.


If you do get it flashed, make sure all your other formats remain the same e.g. date format dd.mm.yy, consumption format L/100km

My Tiger Explorer lets me make the choice in its Setup menu - just another field after the Hours/Minutes settings. Pity that BMW didn't add a line or two of code to let us make the choice.

Need to talk to the dealer to see if they can change it and throw a small rock at BMW while I'm at it.

My brother's Kymco C650 Sports was due for service, had him asked the dealer if they could change my G310R's time format. It's confirmed they can and are willing to free of charge. I'll visit them to have it changed as soon as I have the time.

Thanks for that - now to go and pester my dealer.

Just curious - what do you have now - AM/PM or 24 hour?
