When I first got my 2017 Impreza, I used "Settings" in the head unit to tell the unit to automatically get its time from my phone, and it did.

This morning, my phone adjusted itself from Daylight Savings Time to Standard Time. However, despite two starts today with the phone connected via Bluetooth, with one drive lasting over 20 minutes (& also connected via USB/Android Auto), the displayed time in the "Info bar" did not reset from Daylight Savings Time to Standard Time.

Note that the Subaru firmware update intervened between the above two events.

I can of course set the time to "Manual" update, then update the time, and then reset the setting to "Auto" update. However, I'm wondering if anyone else saw this.

Yes, another reason why I hate DST!! Ran through the menu, saw Date and Time was grayed out... (I'm thinking how the heck do I change the time?)
Oh...Vehicle settings on the Display. Changed to manual instead of Auto.

I'm thinking the "Time" would probably set itself if XM satellite was owned. Since I refuse to pay for Radio, I guess I don't get automatic time either.

The time is supposed to set itself w/ "Auto", from the phone's Bluetooth connection (if the head unit does not have a GPS).

So mine was set to auto and the time did not change, then I set to manual but can not find where to set it manually. So how do set this clock? I have a sport with the HK system.

Same - wife reported no change in clock this morning. It was even plugged in directly.

Maybe it's more of a one-time sync function? As in, it syncs when you set the setting only?

Press the buttons ...

On my Impreza, there are two buttons (plus, minus) next to the clock, for setting the time manually. Those buttons can also be used to change between 12-hour & 24-hour (my preference) format.

Edit: Switching to manual mode, setting the correct time, and then switching back to "Auto", just displayed the wrong time again. However, later on Sunday the car picked up the correct time in "Auto" mode.

Looked at the owners manual. The it reads to me is if you have the nav it will auto update. Base cars get the buttons. My Sport has the HK upgrade/ non nav. For a manual change it has to be done via your smartphone. What a bunch of BS for a time change!

Owners Manual, p 3-64

Looked at the owners manual.
OK:

Clock setting with automatically
To set the clock automatically, the “Auto” mode must be selected in the clock adjustment setting preparation procedure.
>> Models with navigation system
The clock will be set automatically where a GPS signal is available.
>> Models without navigation system
The clock will be set and adjusted automatically when a smartphone is connected via Bluetooth® for transferring phonebook data.
  1. Register the smartphone to the audio system. For details, refer to “Bluetooth SETTINGS” in the supplemental Owner’s Manual for the audio/navigation system.
  2. Transfer phonebook data to the system. For details, refer to “Bluetooth SETTINGS” in the supplemental Owner’s Manual for the audio/navigation system. The clock will be adjusted automatically.

Also if I read it correctly, with an IOS device go to settings, notifications,
subaru starlink and allow notifications. Thats supposed to do it for non navigation units also.

1. Easy to forget, you can't manually change the time when the car is in gear.
2. For Android, you have to have shared the contacts for the time to autocorrect.

Forgot to come back and update this, but I noticed after running some errands after work that mine had indeed updated automatically. I don't pay for satellite radio so it must have grabbed the time from my phone.

Mine didn't change with the clocks going back, I opened up the screen and clicked it from Manual back to Auto and it switched the time.

Strange, Nothing is consistent with these new info systems. Perhaps it depends on what software patch you are running.

I gave up on Auto and changed it manually. FWIW - I have the 8" non-navi non-HK system. While in the menu where you select auto/manual, I noticed the description on that option made mention of getting the time from satellites which implies that you need nav. I'm now thinking it was an oversight - it shouldn't be available for the infotainment config of my model.

Changed our Premium time manually. Took all of 10 seconds to figure it out and do it. Sometimes the least technical solution is the easiest.
