All true Rich, but I don't have dual MFD's and don't need all that extra hardware, so I'm happy with a simple and completely unnecessary clock. In fact I just found a very nice Wittnaeur on eBay that is on its way and still have a new 12v backup handy (plus a watch and my iPhone) if I ever need one.
