I just wish I could get the clock on the command center to change with daylight savings time.

But not a big fan of the stealth mode clock, not easy to read.

yeah it's not the most practical clock. Honestly I just want an option to have digital number speed-o in stealth mode as I don't use the stealth mode clock and sometimes find it kind of difficult to read the digital needle speed-o when I'm trying to stay within a couple MPH of a number

A big wish from all of us. It probably won't be part of update 6.15, which has to focus on quickly fixing some more important issues. But hopefully it will be in one of the later updates.

in stealth mode I just drive with the pedal to the floor.. cruises right around 85 which is perfect.. :)

Exceeding 100 is not a fun ticket to get.. this car keeps me tame

If the brightness of the command center would adjust in the daylight, that would help make the clock more legible.

System > Time/Date > Options > 3rd or 4th option down.

I think @Deep Ocean meant to have it change automatically, the way computers, cell phones and similar devices just change the time when they are supposed to without user intervention and are always showing the correct time.

Cell phones get the time from the network. With interesting results when the network is wrong. :D On one of my earlier trips down to the local Fisker dealer (which is in Utah County, not Salt Lake County) my cell phone got very confused about the time, because T-Mobile was broadcasting the wrong information. We (girlfriend and I) claimed it was "Utah County time: rolling everything back to the 1950s!"

Right, and the time base for the cellular network, along with a surprising array of other applications, including the 60HZ cycle of the power grid comes from GPS signals that have the most accurate time base generally available. So it should not be particularly difficult for the car to use the GPS signal to get the correct UTC time, and based on current location convert it to local time by applying the DST/ST rules.

If we went to a single global time all this time zone discussion would not need to be and the world would be a better place. China used to span 4 time zones, I believe, now they have one. Makes complete sense to me. Who cares if you eat lunch at 2000 or go to bed at 0700. I could tell my brother in Scotland that I will call him at 1500 and there would be no need for calculations, knowing if they are on Daylight Savings and we are or are not, etc. The passing of time is natural, the keeping of time is man-made, it would be quite simple to do it. In fact, the military already does with Zulu time which is the same as GMT, we just need to spread it out to the civilian populace.

It appears the digital odometer only works in Sport mode, there was no option to change it in the system>settings>date/time area

You are correct. In stealth you get the stylized clock and in sport you get the digital speedo. There are no options or settings. It's been a frequent topic/suggestion/complaint/request on these forums but AFAIK there is no announced plan to change or augment this.

I like the clock, now that I am used to it. In fact I wish the clock was there all the time. Though I must confess having it change from clock to speed-odometer makes it easy to see which mode I am using.

There are words below it that clearly state what mode you are in, especially if they eliminate the stupid word 'Hill' coming up which can clearly be determined by the letter or number in the center of the speedometer.

With the analog Speedo not having the hash marks on the inside it would be nice to have something to more accuarte gage the speed.
