    Default RDS time abroad

    Not a real issue, but just noticed this while I was in France at the weekend.
    The Vauxhall car Stereos pick up their time from the RDS time transmitted by radio stations, and use this to set the clock (indicated by the little symbol in the radio display).
    This means you never have to set the clock.
    I would have expected that, when you go abroad, the time would set itself to local time as soon as it picks up a French RDS station, but it doesn't. You never get the clock symbol. Does this mean that French and Belgian stations don't transmit RDs time?

    It does not work on ours either, we where in france for three weeks and went right down to Spain and it didn't update once.

    Same here. Not a huge issue though, as when I'm on holiday, I don't care what time it is as long as it's a good one!!!!
