I charged my unit for over 24 hours. Every time I turn it on, it requires me to reset the date.

Help!!

Thanks

Pat

Leave it on for a few hours (50 hours to fully charge the real-time clock battery, but it doesn't have to be all at once).

Does the unit have to be on in scanning mode to charge the real-time clock or can I have it plugged in and in the charging mode?

No, it must be ON as in scanning or manually paused. Just turn the volume down.

Ok, I turn scanner on, it prompts me to enter date/time and then goes into scanning mode. I plug in my usb cable and the radio prompts me to select "mass storage" or "serial port" mode. Which do I choose in order to charge the real time clock?

Set to Serial and then leave the scanner on (scanning or paused with volume down) for several days.
