You are missing a lot! The OBC displays a whole long list of things. If yours only shows what you listed, there's probably nothing wrong with your OBC...You should read your car manual! :P

Yes, the time/clock is included on the display! So is the date.
To display time, press "DSP" (I think, I'm not near my car).

wiseman,

I just checked, I could either press the "DSP" button or the round clock icon. Time can also be displayed on your instrument panel. It's the first click on the lever, before you go thru' the whole list of display items.
