I was on a trip with my little sister this week in her 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee that has a navigation system in it. The clock was an hour ahead so I offered to figure out how to set the clock to the proper time. I was a little confused when I looked into the settings of the clock via the navigation system menu it seemed as though it should be pulling the time from GPS. So I decided to make the clock correct I would switch the displayed clock to user input and adjust it from the time being provided by the GPS system. Below are directions on how to change the time and set to user input.

Jeep Grand Cherokee: How To Change The Time Displayed On The Clock

  1. Navigation Main Menu: First bring up the navigation system main menu which will either come up by default or you can click the menu button on the right side of the navigation screen. The main menu will be displayed as shown in the below image.

  2. Navigation System Settings: Now use the knob control to the right of the navigation screen to scroll down to System Settings. Once highlighted click the Enter button to proceed to the screen below.

  3. Navigation Clock Settings: From the System Settings menu use the same knob described above to scroll down to the Clock Settings. Click the Enter button again to open the Clock Settings as displayed in the below image.

  4. Modify Clock  Settings: Use the controller knob to navigate to the check box next to “Show User Clock” and click the Enter button to move the check from “Show GPS Clock” to “Show User Clock”. Next use the knob to navigate to the Hr. + or – symbol to adjust the clock one way or the other by clicking the Enter button. Once you have changed the time enough in either direction scroll down to the Done bar. Click Enter to save the settings.
  5. Verify New Time: Now verify the time is correct and if it is not follow the above directions to adjust again.

One thing I didn’t have enough time to look into is why the GPS time was not correct. Hopefully in the future I will get the time to do so however until then her clock will at least display the proper time.

    Hello Milan,

    This was my sisters car and I am not sure the next time I will see her but it sounds to me like this is one of the navigation systems that requires the navigation DVD is always inserted into the navigation DVD player. Does your navigation work? Do you have the navigation DVD? If not I believe you can request a new DVD from your auto dealer or possibly purchase a navigation DVD from eBay or something.

    If I see my sister in her Jeep Grand Cherokee in the next week or so I will check to see if the navigation DVD is in the player at all times.

    Thanks.

    Hello sami,

    Sorry to hear about your problem. To be honest I am not totally sure as I wrote the article after helping my sister configure the time on her Jeep Cherokee.

    Thanks.

    There’s a little clip on the top left hand corner of the Nav DVD cover. You need to get a pocket knife or use a finger nail to pry the slot cover off. Then you’ll see the eject button.
