The Model S is ahead of its time, it sprang ahead already!

    It's 7:30 and my MS says its 8:30 pm already. Anyone else see this? I am Seattle, Pacific time.

    Sprung Ahead a Few Hours Early?

    Wondering if anyone else noticed this -- tonight as we drove home from my Dad's I noticed that the Tesla was saying it was 9:42 -- given that we'd begun dinner at 5:30 I wondered how in the world we'd chatted so long. Sad that I wasn't going to have time to peruse the TMC, once we were home I moseyed over to the computer to turn it off for the evening. And wow, it was an hour earlier than the Tesla's clock.

    So...somehow the Pacific timezone in Tesla land popped over to DST at least 6 hours early. So -- did it happen to others in Pacific time zone, or anywhere points east? I suspect we're the pioneers of the time zone handling -- perhaps the Tesla mothership is on UTC and we all flipped when it was 2AM in Greenwich, or????

    Good news was that at least I still had some TMC time this evening...

    Yes, noticed the same thing here in California. Time and date related code seems to always be a problem on any software project I've ever worked on...

    Same here, east coast. I don't know when it flipped ahead. I've already reported it to ownership.

    Mine is an hour ahead also. Your idea about GMT sounds right.

    Yup. Whenever a time-related task comes up in development, I try to be busy on something else. You. Will. Never. Get. It. Right.

    Doesn't sound like anyone wants to take on the recently approved redo of the Date transformations in our software...

    Yup, I noticed it too, and it gave my wife a fright, as we briefly thought we were going to be late picking up our kids after date night!

    There's speculation that the cars used Zulu instead of Local.

    So why hasn't mine changed over yet?

    update: looks like I needed a reboot to get things started. All is right in the world again.

    Mine never changed. Can't even figure out hos to change the clock manually ... where's my user manual?
    But you say a reboot of center and drivers screen sorts it?

    Yea, I noticed that last night too. I wondered if it was a bug related to the time of DST, but accidentally calculated against GMT rather than my local timezone.

    Woot!! I am THRILLED that issues with Model S are now things like 'it changed time a few hours early' or 'it hasn't updated the time yet'.

    Way to go, Tesla!

    May not be a Tesla isue but an AT&T issue if it syncing time to the cell towers. Here in Arizona, we don't change time like the rest of you. However, the cell phones decided to change time. Freaked the BF out this morning when he thought he was late to work. Reboot of the cell phone corrected the time. Tess was off last night, but this morning is showing the correct time.
