    GSHOCK-RANGEMAN-GPR-B1000: GPS ANTENNA - INCREASE PERFORMANCE

    Hello - is there any way to increase performance (strength) of GPS antenna? I just watched some video, where one guy disassembly Rangeman - and noticed that antenna is this silver ring around the display - maybe there is a way to increase its performance? Like using some wires etc above the display... Beside are there any modds available? Or maybe custom firmware for this watch?

    y tho?

    seems like it would be as fruitful/necessary as taking your phone apart to boost its gps antenna.

    also something tells me a bent coat hanger is going to be rather cumbersome on your wrist :p

    Casio invested millions of dollar to develop their watches — the antenna built in is the optimum for this watch.

    I can’t see any easy way of doing it. I’m not saying that it couldn’t be done but the solution is not what you’d ever call portable.

    GPS Repeaters are the correct way to do this.

    *If* Casio invested millions of dollars into developing the Rangebeast, which I severely doubt (happy if I'm wrong) it's still a compromise. Every consumer good is a compromise of cost, ROI, battery life, wearability, tech, so many many other things. I expect that the antenna built into the watch is the best one that fits in with all the technical, design and commercial constraints that impacted the design.
