    Can you not adjust the clock via Tech2 or other interface?

    I fitted a JVC and bought the steering controls cable to match and I can change the date and time using the steering wheel controls. so answer is yes it can be done.

    Just fitted a Pioneer DEH-P55 BT to my 07 Vectra to replace a CD30. Got a Canbus adaptor - Autoleads PC99 X80 - for the steering wheel controls to work the Pioneer functions. All works fine, but I have not tried the clock adjustment! Never entered my mind. But the other controls work, such as fuel comsumption, stopwatch, etc. Radio/CD info is displayed on Pioneer anyway, so all sorted.
