    When the clocks changed at the end of October, I have discovered that my OVMS module has not and resolutely believes it is the time it was a month ago.

    consequently, timed charging events fire at the wrong time.

    how do I force the OVMS module to reset its clock please? I feel I must be missing something obvious!

    Replying to my own post.... I can achieve it by changing the GMT offset, parameter #23, manually. Is that what everyone else has to do?

    That is the documented way to handle time changes.

    Bother! I hoped to avoid having to change a clock manually especially given that the GSM signal carries a time code.

    oh well, now to put a recurring reminder in my diary for time change days. At least I can do it remotely which is more than I can for the car's own clock!
