It seems like every few months I have to readjust my clock because it loses a few minutes. Does anyone else have this problem and is there a fix?

I have this problem. Once a month I have to add a minute or two. Generally I'm happy with the base unit though. Get' s the job done fine. Tom

Yep the 5" sucks :crying:
Mine has been generally pretty good, other than losing a few minutes every month or so. Today though, it rebooted three times while I was just out cruising around with my kids. Not sure what that was all about??

The JK's have the same issue. I'm surprised Jeep didn't figure out a fix for the JL's.
There is a lot of crap FCA did not figure out on the JL and even today with 2021’s they are still seeing alot of the same issues that the 2018’s saw

This has been a constant problem with my JK since day 1. And a coworker with a Grand Cherokee also had the same problem. I was hoping it'd be resolved in the JL, but sounds like... nope.

Guess it's a Jeep thing. 😆

It's not a jeep issue, it's a digital clock issue... All digital clocks have the issue (some drift more, some drift less, but they all drift). Don't blame jeep for a technology limitation. There is a reason the atomic time clocks are a big deal, and there's a reason they broadcast time signals. Sadly, they tried to keep the base headunit barebones.
