How the clock doesn't work

Update: I mentioned the clock lost time? Well apparently the clock STOPS when the car is shut off. I checked the date and time after work today and it thought it was still lunchtime two days ago.

That's pretty retarded, so I'm now suspecting that they knew the shipped version of the firmware was iffy, and that's why they included a baby CD with a new version of the firmware and a firmware updater utility.

I'm going to get the latest version from Autel's website and try that.

And apparently my OBDII port continues to supply power when the car is shut off, because if I unplug/replug the RJ11 connector, the display will come on again. So it's not like the Maxitrip is not getting power to run its clock.
