I don't know about non-US cars but ours has a check box for that (it's called Daylight Savings Time here) in the Time/Date menu in the Infortainment system.

That’s all you get here too because I’ve ticked the box this morning.

I think what radox (that name sounds relaxing:D) is saying that the auto setting only can be set with VCDS.
 
Yep been waiting 6months to check if it worked and pleasant surprise to see the correct time without having to touch it. Should be set to that from the factory.

I thought mine had changed, then I looked at the mfd and it was an hour behind. Then realised my phone was plugged in. ��

Nice find!

Stuart, on your site you recommend reading SSP442. That SSP442 describes the old
'Dieselgate' EA189 CR Diesel used in the Mk.VI, while your Mk.VII TDI has the current
EA288, on which is put a finer point to in SSP514. You may even like to read all Mk.7
related SSP513 to SSP522.

My DST button just adds subtracts an hour, only the minutes are correct from the gps :(

t's easy to set the automatic change but I change the time manually as all my clocks inc. car are set 5 mins fast. That way I'm usually 5 mins late for everything instead of 10 mins late. Look up in any dictionary under 'Lat'e it will state: 'someone who is never, ever on time'. 'See also Genegenie', under which it says 'always late'. :rolleyes:....

Just confirmed that the "Automatic summer time" setting (enabled with a tool such as VCDS) does cause the clock to change to summer/winter time automatically. See http://www.stuartdalby.co.uk/vwgolfmk7/VCDS/index.php#automaticsummertime.

I wonder why Volkswagen doesn't enable this setting by default?

This setting has been discovered about two years ago.
