Hello,

Is there a way to display the current date and time with Arduino Uno or another Arduino brand board without being connected to a computer? If so, which Arduino can do this?  I am not sure if I need another chip/module.   If you have an example code for this, please post it here as well.  I will be saving the current date and time data using my data logger that's connected to the tx/rx connection.

Best way is to get a realtime clock chip, like the DS1307.  Here is a project that is exactly what you are looking for .. schematic, parts, even source code for the project.
