Setting Your Clock in Your Car

Whether you’re on vacation in a new time zone or you’ve reached Daylight Savings Time in Cordova, learning how to set the clock in a Nissan is a useful skill to have on hand. If you drive a 2021 Nissan model with navigation, you can tap into your touchscreen display to adjust your clock settings easily. Just follow these steps to change your Nissan clock setup:

  1. Press the “MENU” button on the control panel.
  2. Tap the time display or touch “SETTINGS” and then “CLOCK”.
  3. Click “ON-SCREEN CLOCK” to turn your display clock on or off.
  4. Click on “CLOCK FORMAT” to switch between 12-hour and 24-hour formats.

Change Nissan Clock Mode

One of the most common questions we get about the Nissan clock setup is the “Clock Mode” settings. Each mode offers a slightly different way to adjust the time of your car clock. Some may prefer to input the time manually, while others prefer to set it and forget it. See which clock mode suits your preferences:

  • Auto: The “Auto” setting utilizes your GPS to determine your precise location. Based on this location, your car will automatically pull the right time settings.
  • Time Zone: If you want to set your clock for a specific time zone, click into “Time Zone” mode to choose from a long list of options.
  • Manual: When you need to set your clock manually, use the “Manual” mode to set the time of your choice.
