And sometimes one wants to reset whilst driving. In the old days, one would simply push a button on the dash, and job done! Now I have to push and scroll and hold, and do that three times. It's a laughable approach.
In the old days, elapsed time was based on your wrist watch - there was no elapsed trip timer in the car. If the elapsed time is reset last, it is within a few seconds of your actual launch. That's how I did it when flying in combat.
