Just noticed today my clock jumped ahead and hour and when I go to clock adjustment to change it, it doesnt change after i adjust the time. Tried turning the auto timezone and auto dst off and on made no difference. I drive a 2011 exl coupe with navi. Anyone else have the same thing happen?

Seems like there is a bug in the navigation system, the clocks on my 2010 Accord and many other Honda models have advanced by one hour today (2022-JAN-02).

CRV: Clock Fault (Year 2022)

Pilot: 2011 EX-L w/NAV Clock Issue

Ridgeline: handsfreelink and navi problems

Just like the owners in those posts, I also tried manually set the time, but it jumps right back to 12:00 on the Navigation UI after I hit "DONE", and the smaller clock on the radio is nolonger in sync with the navigation system.

And also the GPS status on the navigation is not stable (keep going from no fix (No GPS symbol on map) -> 2d fix (a dimond shape next to the word GPS) -> 3d fix (a box next to the word GPS) -> no fix) even tho I am driving in a low density zone with good visibiliy to the sky.

I wish Honda would release a fix.

The clock on the Navigation UI is stuck at 1200. And the clock on the radio is one hour ahead.

And today's date became 2002 Jan 1 in the Calendar

The clock on the 7th gen with navi has been broken for a few years now, and we never got an update. I wouldn't be hopeful that Honda releases an update for the 8th gen.

This seems to be affecting a bunch of Hondas with the year change. It's been happening to 05-10 Odysseys as well. If I had to guess, Honda's navi software probably has a bug and can't handle date and time in 2022. Not that different from the Y2K problem.

The Odyssey has been having issues as well.

Same issue as what was affecting Microsoft Exchange perhaps?

I just took a look at my '09 and the clock is correct. The calendar correctly indicates 2022, too. I bought a new navigation DVD in 2016.

I appreciated finding this thread today. I was very confused why my 2012 Accord EX-L w/ Navi is doing this as it's usually dead-on accurate with time changes. I've read the same experience with other models as well. Can anyone confirm if getting an updated map DVD (I still have the original 2011 disc) actually fixes this bug? I don't want to spend money on something I wouldn't normally buy if it won't repair the issue.

Updated map DVD may not fix it. Some users in the Odyssey forum are having this problem even with the latest map update. We haven't figured out what the cause of the problem is and why exactly some people are not having the issue.

Y2K22 Bug
The best explanation as the likely cause is from CR-V owner’s club member CRV-32.
“It hasn’t been in the news much but yesterday the date was written by many computers as 2201010001 (YYMMDDHHMM).” said this 2007 Honda CR-V owner.
Many older computers that store the date this way cannot handle any number bigger than 2147483647, so as soon as the year began with a 22, it fails and can no longer register the date/time correctly.
I can’t prove this for certain, but the timing is not likely to be coincidence. It’s basically like the millennium bug on a smaller scale.
The same issue wrecked some Microsoft email servers yesterday too.”
See: Microsoft Exchange year 2022 bug in FIP-FS breaks email delivery
“It is ultimately a hardware and software issue, so I doubt Honda will roll out a fix for vehicles that are this old. Happy to be corrected if this is not right, but the timing and the fact that it has started to affect many cars at the same exact time means it’s likely to be the root cause IMHO.”

The following explains why I have trouble with email at work too !!!!

Hmm. Let me think through a couple ideas. I have a K-Tuner. That doesn't seem like a likely explanation, but there is some overlap between the computer systems because my trip computer data blanks out after a flash.

I've also had to enter the radio and nav codes after replacing the battery. The last time was a couple years ago, but turning a computer off and on again fixes a lot of things. In doing that, I discovered the cancel/map/menu diagnostic screen. I wonder if there's a setting in there that could help.

I find this funny, being an IT guy having survived and sat in a server room for Y2K and nothing really happened.

I love old tech and manual adjustment capability on the 7th gen.

Also an IT guy that hung out in the server room in 1999. I have a 7th Gen and the adjustments aren't working for me...

7th gen means 2003 to 2007 Accords. There is no syncing of the car's clock to anything at all, the clock displays just the time, no year, no date.

You must have an 8th gen Accord

So do our clocks in the 8th Gens use the Navi satellite to set the clocks...do you know? If yes, an updated NAVI disc wont help at all IMO

Like I said, I love lowest tech model cars. I have NO navi in my 7th gen, no issues whatsoever. Don't know if anyone tried to disconnect the nav antenna from behind the headunit, it's worth a shot. You'll need disassemble the console to get to it.

Have now discovered the same problem with mine from 2006 with premium sound system navigation.
