Tried setting up my cge the other day and I kept getting this weird date configuration, J55360, or something like it. I know that when these mounts get wonky, just reset it. I am thinking the batter needs changing, just wondering if anyone seen it before, thanks.

I don't recall that the CGE had a battery. CGEM, yeah...

Yup. The CGE definitely has a small button battery CR2025? on one of the circuit boards in the electronics pier.
