To change the time (clock), tap the main part of the screen. Then click on the "wrench" icon (Change preferences). Then, click on the blue arrow (4x) to go to the 5th page (Preferences 5 of 5). Click on the "clock" icon (Set clock). Then select the display preference you want and set the time.

Tap changes preferences on the main menu
then you can do set time or set units depending which model you have. You then set the time zone and the unit gets the time from the gps satellites and display it with your local time zone changes.
You may just have to set or enable DST (daylight savings time ) if after setting the zone/time it is still out.

If you don;t have can;t find your manual you can get a pdf version free from tomtom. Just go to and click on support and then look for user guides. You may have to set your location/country-language before you can get to support. Then just download the manual which you can read or print using a pdf reader ie a free one such as adobe reader. The time stuff is covered under the preferences area on the manual.
