I do like that feature on the CTX.
Something so simple but I can check it while water hunting.

It would be a great feature, but please make it bigger than on the CTX so old folks like myself can actually see it.

I have a watch... a clock in the car... a clock on my cell phone.. I don't need another clock. Just something else to go faulty.

"I pushed hard to fit 'a clock' in the CTX
They did.
This is the very 1st post I've ever seen remotely referring to the topic since the CTX was released.
I don't think too many rated a clock as a valid feature?
It 'sounded right' when we were designing it but, ???"

Des,to ME....it's needed. I run a tight schedule ALL the time and don't own a Rolex,or even a Casio. Being able to glance at the screen for yet ANOTHER piece of valuable information during my detecting has been SO helpful that I cannot believe I'm the only guy who thinks so. Maybe people don't mention it because it's such a no brainer that it ought to be on EVERY machine built by ANYONE. And,obviously YOU thought it was not only a frill,but really a valuable built in tool that probably costed next to nothing to add,relatively speaking. Why the EFF would anyone be AGAINST it? Something else to "break"? We're not talking about strapping a cuckoo clock to the display pod! The CTX clock,with a tad larger digits....perfecto!

Cuckoo clock to the display pod? Anyone who doesn't think that's funny has no sense of humor. I agree a clock would be a welcome feature.

Does the CTX have a small internal battery to keep time when the main battery is removed?

Hello

That is an EXCELLENT observation,along with the settings and everything else it keeps. I never even considered that it was doing that. It could be an internal battery or another capacitor of some kind...it's gonna bug me now. Thanks a lot Hello!:lol:
