2. Use the H and M buttons (TUNE) to adjust the hour and the minute.

3. When you have finished, press the CLOCK button again.

Tip: If you want to jump to the nearest hour, hold the 00 button.

How to Set Your Clock on the Mazda Connect™ Infotainment System Screen

1. Select settings on the home screen of your display. This is usually located on the right side

2. Select Clock.

3. Select Adjust Time.

4. Use the plus and minus buttons to adjust the hour and minute. The am/pm button will switch the clock from a.m. to p.m., if you have the clock set to a 12-hour display; if the clock is set to 24-hour display (military time) and you want to change this, go back to the Clock setting screen and change the Time Format.

5. You can also use the GPS Sync option to set the clock based on your location.

Note: Never attempt to set your clock while your vehicle is in motion.
