I would leave the RTC there - it works as a reliable backup. It's a DS1307 based circuit (fine as a backup) so you're never going to get great accuracy with it, but it's intended to keep the clock right between updates.

If people want to skip installing it, that's fine.

The alternative is to go the other way: Put a DS3231 on the board, which can be used totally offline.
I avoided this in the past because there isn't a good through hole alternative easily available,

Hi MikeS,

You're making the incorrect assumption that all users would at all times have WiFi (and Internet) available.


No, I expect this in 2020 AD.
If we do not yet assume this in the digital age, we are wrong here.

Let's leave it in there for the moment - it's a long road to get retro tech people to get into the 21st century... ;)

How parochial. I'm happy that you have WiFi and Internet when sailing in the middle of the ocean, or camping in the middle of a national park or deep in a mountain valley.
