Default TRX-1 No date and time memory?

TRX-1 has no date and time memory? Gets frustrating resetting date and time every day when changing batteries. Is it supposed to be this way?

Goes back to the days of the PSR 800, only have a short amount of time when changing batteries, before it loses the date and time. There is a thread about this from years ago, mentioning this very thing.

Default Thank you

Thanks, tried to be quick but no luck unless I leave it plugged in to my laptop then do it that way.

Get rechargeables and let the scanner recharge them. It should not be this way especially if the scanner is still plugged in.

It's bizarre to me that you can buy $3 digital watch near the checkout lane at Walmart but a $500 scanner cannot keep time and date. Wouldn't it just take a small battery or something?

Send it in for repair because it is supposed to hold time for period long enough to change the batteries.

Leave the scanner plugged into the computer all day or over night with the computer on , the TRX-2 has a internal battery that is only charged by the usb cable and scanner turned off .

Mine does, I don't have an issue. I use an external charger and swap out so I don't lose time.

I have a question on the TRX-2 date/time battery. Can the TRX-2 battery be charged if the TRX-2 is powered off but plugged into AC power and the USB cable plugged in to radio but NOT connected to the PC? Somewhere in I read that AC power will charge the battery as long as the USB cable was simply plugged into the TRX-2 but not connected to PC nor wall wart. Thanks

I've never seen this issue either.
