    I have a 2018 Prius IV and I have successfully changed the times other years. This time I've read nearly through that damn "instruction" manual and can't find out how to do it! I have the 11" screen version. I wish I had my 2010 back, except for the safety features which is why I upgraded. I do like the nearly 60 mpg I get on this version however. Can anyone direct this old lady to the proper instructions--I will be very grateful for your help.

    My instructions when finding anything about time is for the systems time--does not change the clock time It is somewhere in the settings but so far I haven't found it.

    Thank you for the link to a previous thread. Tomorrow I will tackle this engineering problem--some of the suggestions I quickly scanned just now seemed vaguely familiar. If the powers that be change DST to be the full time designation this might be the last time we have to change.

    Your next car will probably be a little more advanced, and update the onboard clock without you having to dig around looking for the manual.

    On our 2010 I reached over and pushed the hour button once. While driving.

    Come fall I’ll have to push it eleven times; best pull over for that.

    Loved the post about next car being more advanced! I'm 80 and this will be my last car unless I wreck it. Bought it new December 2018 and it only has 11,500 miles on it! I sold a perfectly good 2010 after a minor wreck that safety features probably would have prevented and decided that at my age I needed all the help I could get. Loved th ease of changing the clock on the 2010. Will tackle the clock with the help given later today.

    There are two clocks in the car - the one on the 4.2" MID on the top right and the internal one associated with the navigation system (That gives you the correct arrival time).

    For the clock on the MID:

    Use the right steering wheel control to navigate (left/right) to the Settings menu (the nut). Press enter (the middle circle)

    Once in the Settings screen, press up/down to get to the clock setting

    For the navigation system DST change, press MENU then SYSTEM TIME

    With the very clear instructions I received it was an easy change to DST. it took me a lot longer to get out of those settings and finally find the setting I wanted on the screen--the daily diary with the day's mpg on it. Thanks to all that took the time to help.
