So, not sure how many have payed attention. My sport yesterday said the date was 4-1-2010. Today it was 5-1-2010. I set it to the correct date this morning. We will see what happens tomorrow.

Other than the DDMMYY "European" date format (which you can probably change to MMDDYY, not sure how on a MY2010) I don't see a problem... Am I missing something?

Just ran out to the truck again , and btw it is back to 5-1-2010. SO the setting MM/DD/YY is changing itself to DD/MM/YY. This only happened after the new year. Kind of odd how no problems until 2010.

Don't call me the douchebag you're the idiot that can't figure out how to tell time.

Please, calm down everyone. Considering there is a documented bug in the satnav switching back to UK English language overnight (Land Rover has a fix), and another one where the navigation display reverts back to miles if you set it to indicate kilometers and restart the car (no fix yet), it's quite possible a similar software hiccup may have struck the date format on some early build 2010s, why not... Like a small-scale Y2K bug. :wink: I'll keep my eyes open for a service message, if the issue is extensive enough I am sure it won't be long before other owners start complaining about it.

Yeah .. sorry man. It can't possibly be a software problem with the Rover. Clearly, I got so bombed at new years I forgot how to tell time and read a date ...

Sorry for digging up a 3 year old thread!

My Canadian 2011 RRS HSE-LUX has had the NAV switching back to Miles bug on and off for most of its life. It does get quite annoying after more than 2 years. The only way to get the NAV to display KM is by switching it to Miles and then back to KM. Next time I start the car, the NAV will read miles again!! :???:

Would love to get this fixed at some point...

Since umberto is the master of all bulletins, do you know whether there was a bulletin for this by now that I can take to my dealer? They haven't been able to fix this last time I asked...

Thanks for that, umberto!
My car is outside of the VIN range mentioned in that bulletin, so I bet my dealer will refuse to do that. :roll:
