Clock

Hi, I bought a new Escape here in Taiwan in summer 2011. This is the old style which is still marketed here now. I have been happy with the vehicle but some really basic things frustrate the heck out of me! The one thing which aggravates me every single time I drive it is the lack of a clock. I simply cannot believe that it wasn't fitted with a clock - even my 61 TBird had a clock. When I have talked to the dealer about this their answer is that you can see the time when you turn on the entertainment system. Ok, but I don't always want to have that turned on simply to see the time. Before I go out and buy a cheap stick-on clock (really....I can't believe I am going to have to stick a battery operated clock on the dash) are there any better solutions?
Best wishes to all,
Mark

Re: Clock

Some after market radios will show the time when off, that's the best I can do for you.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

Re: Clock

I can't hardly believe that it doesn't have one. Might not be working for some reason? Some might not come with a compass.

Re: Clock

Well, my '73 doesn't have a clock, I believe it was an option.I also owned a Taurus that had a clock in the dash and on the radio and I couldn't figure out why I needed 2 clocks.

My suggestion: turn the radio on so you can see the clock and if you don't want to hear it, turn it down.

Re: Clock

Just checked on our Ford cars here and they all show the time and date even when the radio off . Might be worth checking radio hand book , settings , menu .

My '78 does but it's analog.
