Help! Adafruit precise clock with 7” screen

by Knitewatch on Sun Aug 02, 2020 1:35 am

Hi,

I purchased the Adafruit 4282 Real time clock and I noticed that I can’t plug it in because my 7” pi touch screen is already plugged in those slots. What do I do? I also attached a pic of where my screen is plugged in. Let me know. Thanks!

You could maybe put something like this on the Pi first:

and then add the RTC module. The pins will stick through the RTC module and you can attach the jumper wires to those.

Do I have to do any thing to make the clock work or is it just plug and play?

Here's the guide for the RTC:

You do need to go through an initial setup to set the current date and time:
