I have the radio/single cd/mp3 option. If I push the clock button I can set the time and date, then push the arrow and set 12 or 24 hour selection. When I am using the radio/cd or if it is off, I can always see the time. But I can only see the date display when I am in the clock setting mode. I tried following the instuctions, but this is the only way the date will display. Does anyone else have this problem? Or maybe I should ask...does anyone else get the date to display all the time?
