This is what I was told as a work around by a dealer who was reading it from Honda.
At exactly 12:40 AM or PM, doesn’t matter, disconnect the battery for 15 minutes. Reconnect, enter radio and NAV codes and hopefully you have timed it just right to where when the system clock starts at 1:00, it’s actually 1:00. On my car there is no calendar so am or pm doesn’t matter.
I have an 06 EXL and could do this but would have to twice a year. No thanks, please fix it Honda.
IMO, there is really no excuse for this happening…ever!

Buy a navigation update DVD, that's supposed to fix it.
No, no it won’t…

From Honda:

Dear Mr. Hingst ,

We value you as a Honda customer and appreciate the opportunity to respond to your concern. On behalf of American Honda Motor Co., Inc., we apologize for the circumstances which prompted you to reach out to us. We appreciate your feedback and thank you for bringing your concern(s) to our attention.

Upon further review of the circumstances related to the inability to adjust the calendar/clock, we have confirmed that the issue is related to the navigation system’s internal calendar/clock.

We have also confirmed that the internal calendar/clock issue is temporary, and the navigation system will auto correct itself after the summer of 2022. We ask that you wait until September 2022, after which you will be able to manually adjust the calendar/clock to your preferred time.

We appreciate your patience and understanding with this matter.


Kind regards,
Honda In-Car Technology Support

I waited for the time change to preform the workaround. I disconnected the negative battery terminal at 12:50. Waited till 12:58 to reconnect it and enter the NAV code and radio code. My timing was perfect as when the system came back online, it was exactly 1:00 - the time the clock defaults to when power is removed. Now to wait and see if Honda was right when they said “the problem will fix itself” sometime in August or September.
cheers !!!
Eric
