After waking my CGEM from hibernate mode, each time the time and date do not retain the current settings. I love this mount in every way, but am puzzled by this glitch. Has anyone had a similar experience? I appreciate all replies.

You have to specifically turn on the Real Time Clock, it's not turned on by default. I believe it's in the Utilities menu.

As Tony said, you need to turn on the internal clock. He is correct that it is located in the 'Utilities' menu under 'Turn On/Off RTC' You can leave this on all of the time. There is no need to turn it off. This will maintain the day, date and time in your mount.

Thanks Tony and Stan. Isn't it amazing how the obvious stares you in the face!?
