    My clock will not advance. Tesla asks if it says "Jan 1970".... yes it does! Anyone else have this problem and was it solved by replacing the GPS or the antenna?? thanks everyone.

    Haven't had this issue, but I recall someone saying that if you tapped on the time a few times (3?) it resets to the current time. Have you tried that?

    It's possible the car gets its time sync from the cellular connection and not GPS.
