    All you road trippers out there... small but annoying problem for you.

    Is there any way to force the clock in the MS to update? When we are crossing time zones, our cell phones update nearly instantly, but I've been halfway through a state before I start to wonder if an hour disappeared driving or the clock finally decided to switch over to the new time zone.

    I have not tried rebooting the dash, I suppose that would be one way, but hoping there is a less forceful means?

    Triple-tapping the clock on the touchscreen will cause it to update time and timezone.

    (EDIT: thought it was touching it for 10 seconds, but searched and found it)
