Why the clock is not adjusted?

2018 Nissan Leaf (with navigation system) can not adjust the time! I go to the menu on the central display, to the “clock” setting, adjust the time, time zone - but the clock on the dashboard does not change.
What am I doing wrong?
Imported car from the USA, I am in Ukraine.

The gave you TWO clocks... One in the radio, and one on the dash with the speedometer. They must be adjusted separately each time there is a national time change... !!!!!

You adjust the dash clock from the dash buttons to the left of the steering wheel ..
Not in later LEAFs.

Far from it. When I try to set up the clock on the dashboard, I get the message "to adjust the clock - go to the main central screen" and that's it. And there I tune the time - but it does not change on the dashboard!
There is one more nuance - in our country, Nissan Connect does not work. Maybe because of this?

My Mercedes b250e automatically set the clock. My IoniQ requires me to set it twice a year. It is no big deal since it is only twice a year.. Yes the programmer was lazy. My clocks set it automatically at home. but I can live with manually setting it.

It is POSSIBLE that the clock is set by Sirius/XM, and when they are not in range it doesn't set...

UTC is the answer. :)

Yep on what WetEV said.

On my '13 Leaf SV w/premium and my former '13 SV w/both packages, the nav system clock is synced probably by something, probably GPS satellites and less likely cellular network or Sirius XM. There is no way to separately adjust the clock. It is always in sync w/the nav system clock.

I looked at the nav menus and there seems to be no way to override the auto-setting. One can only adjust the offset (in minutes and hours), turn on/off DST and select the time zone. If you chance the offset or toggle DST, both clock change automatically.

The only time zone choices available are Pacific thru Newfoundland. Unclear what happens if the car's taken outside those zones. Will other UI be exposed like other time zones or a manual settings screen?

GPS antenna has been disconnected!
