British Summertime

Rather disappointed to discover the time in my 2021MY Macan GTS hadn't changed from when the clocks went forward 1 hour last weekend. 
 
I checked the settings in the Multifunction Display, also those in the PCM and both had been checked at "Auto", but were only recording GMT. I had (wrongly as it turns out) assumed the time would be adjusted automatically for BST - apparently not. 
 
It seems necessary to disable the auto settings, then adjust the time manually. At least, that's the only way I can see of doing it. Perhaps someone has another suggestion? 
 
Only a minor niggle I know, but in this day and age, it's perhaps surprising clocks in the new Macan can't keep pace with the actual time of day!  
 
Regards,
 
 
Clive

I did my Macan S ( Nov 17 ) on the morning of the change date, it was very complicated though, I put the key in the ignition turned it on and the car did it itself. Told you it was complicated😂

I had great trouble with my 2017 Macan GTS as well. I opened my garage, unlocked the car, and drove off with that lovely sound coming from the sports exhaust. Oh, and the time was correct 😂

It's all part of Porsche's latest self-help scheme in order to instil a greater sense achievement and well being in owners by having them make manual adjustments in their latest iterations.

Same on my 992 Clive.  If I wanted manual I wouldn’t have gone for PDK 🤣🤣

And another thing...
 
You will need to save the setting into your key or car memory or time will revert to GMT and auto again next time.👀

Have to say this is one of the best "1st World problem" topics I've seen for a while!
I always enjoy that day before or after clock change when I tick or untick the daylight saving box in my ancient 997.
But I agree that given my phone, computer, bedside clock, central heating clock and tablet all change without any help from me, it's a bit odd that today's all singing and dancing car doesn't.

I'm speeding because I have to get there before I forget where I'm going.

My Gen 2 Macan Turbo changed to BST automatically as has my previous 718 Caymans. I've never experienced a problem with this.   
 
In the depths of the PCM there is a setting for the time which you can select the appropriate time for your location.
 
Maybe worth a check on Good to Know app or your driver's handbook.

My previous 981 Cayman had to be done manually.  My 2021 model 992 has the auto option, but it appears not to work, hence I did it manually last week.  I can live with doing this a couple of time a year.
