I can't believe you can spend $85k on something and it can't even keep time! In fact you can't even set it up to the right time. My clock will always be an hour off even if you go through all the setup to make it correct. Seems kind of nit picky but really........

I can't believe they can't install locking nuts on the interior parts. Been out 4 times on a new boat and my son hands me a couple of fender washers and nuts. No attention to detail.

If your out on the boat, who cares what time it is? As long as the sun is shining, lets have another set.

I don't know about other people but I sure try to lose track of time when I'm on my boat. I hate it when people constantly remind me of what time it is. If I'm on the boat I could careless.

THIS!!!!  I've had my boat for 3 years and never bothered to set the clock on it.   With phones and watches, what's the need? 

I never set it due to once the weekend is over I shut the batteries off and then have to reset it again... and I never look at it .... use phone for music... so the head unit is there just to fill an empty space ;)

However I can relate to his frustration... It is on the boat and it should work... however, are we sure it is not UIE ;)

What boat do you have? Mine had the headunit under the arm rest. I removed it and installed a plastic dash pocket. Great place to store my keys and wallet. 

 

I have no idea how to set my clock.

Oh but I do and I understand, but I just keep the head unit display on things other than time as well as the LCD display on depth or cruise screen.  If it wasn't I would go insane....just a work around that's all!  I'd rather focus my OCD in other areas like wiping, waxing, cleaning, vacuuming, washing, straightening, cleaning, waxing, wiping, vacuuming, cleaning, wiping, straightening....and so on.

You have us by a few degrees, got out Saturday was 90 and 81 water temp.  Ton's of fun, taught 8 newbies how to surf with 4 of them figuring out how to throw in the rope.
