Erroneous Time Zone Setting Affecting Clock Time Accuracy and Estimated Arrival Times – 2015 Subaru Legacy & Outback

NUMBER: 15-180-15
DATE: 03-31-15

APPLICABILITY: 2015 Legacy and Outback Models with Fujitsu-Ten (F10) Navigation System
SUBJECT: Erroneous Time Zone Setting Affecting Clock Time Accuracy and Estimated Arrival Times

 

INTRODUCTION

This bulletin announces availability of revised map data to address customer concerns of an incorrect clock time being displayed (one hour difference ahead or behind) on the HVAC control unit and an incorrect estimated destination arrival time being displayed by the Navigation system.  This condition only occurs in certain geographical areas located near the crossover between time zones (e.g. the border between Eastern and Central time).  It is a result of erroneous time zone data contained in the map data on the Micro-SD card.  An enhanced Micro-SD card has been released to address this condition.  This part number change does not affect the actual maps on the Micro SD Card as they are the same as originally supplied with the vehicle.
