For some reason you can only do that in the non-touring version.

Interesting. I see no mention of changing it between 12 and 24 hour time display. They do mention it on the lower level Blaupunkt.

I have the touring radio (Los Angeles). I called Blaupunkt customer service about this, and they told me YOU CAN'T CHANGE IT! Here we have a friggin blingfest of a radio with tons of useless functions, and the idiots don't bother to add a simple, common feature -- 12 hour mode.

Can we define what we mean by 12 hour vs 24 hour?

Mine says 02:10 in the afternoon. Is that not 12 hour mode?

Randy, You probably have the clock set 12hrs too fast or too slow.

Having been on the military I personally always have my watch set to 24 hr mode, it just makes more sense to me specially for alarms and such, no risk of setting the alarm for 4:00 PM instead of 4:00 AM and such.

If you don't like looking at the clock in 24hr time display, then the Elise is not the car for you.




:D Just kidding :D

YES. Great engineering. How can you overlook something so simple?? Any american could have told you that that was going to be a minor problem in about 30 seconds.

what happens if you set the time automatically via the RDS function?

still military time?
Mine doesnt give me this option. Does the radio "know" that their are no stations around me that broadcast the time signal and therefore not let me select it?

I also cant search by type of music either (rock, news, classic, etc)since the stations dont break it down or broadcast that signal. I found one station that displays the frequency, and the name of the song or artist.

If you have the radio do an automatic search it might dispaly the song. I had "Frank" show as a station since it was playing Sinatra when it scanned it in. To fix it, all you do to change it is hit the button next to the station when it displays the correct info, it beeps and then changes it on the display

Is the radio named the Los Angeles becasue LA broadcasts the station displays, type of music, automatic time adjustments or is that just a name they arbitraily gave to the radio.


Randy or anybody who has driven cross country- Whatr states or areas display all of this information. Is their a website that shows what stations and areas do this. I remember a few years ago NYC broadcast traffic delays and emergencies and certaint radios would automatically pick up the signal and switch stations.
You would think that they would have an industry standard.

They do. It's called XM. Once you have it, you realize just how bad broadcast radio is. Even Howard Stern has figured it out.
