Does anyone deal with devices defaulting their system date back to 1/1/2007?

Frequently a device loses complete power and upon coming back on - defaults to a system date of 1/1/2007. The only place that a scanner user sees date is on saved collected - un uploaded - entries. A date time stamp 'somewhere' on the scanner display would be nice.

This USED to be an issue... one cause was the fact the battery on the scanner (internal) is dying. This is an issue with Motorola MC55 especially.

This is a known problem for the MC9090 device. Unlike newer devices, it performs a cold reset when power loss occurs. Because of this, system times change until partnered with a computer. Best course of action would be to always make sure users charge their devices when they are not in use and replace faulty batteries.
