    Gulfman - disable mode change animation?

    G-9100 question:

    When I cycle through the modes - time>tide>world>STW etc., the Gulfman takes exactly one second to do a little dance and then displays the page.

    I find that a silly waste of time which makes it feel a lot less responsive in use - is there any way it can be disabled?

    I doubt there is a way, I wish there was as it's one reason I sold my GLX-5600 as it did the same thing.

    Unfortunately it's one thing you'll have to live with on the G9100, unless you can actually hack the module and reprogram it to remove the animation during mode changes.

    i think what Bogeyman was trying to say was simply: "You can't."

    i have the same thing for the GWM850 module. when you change mode, the numbers will "scroll" from the right to left. it takes just a little bit of time. that doesn't really bother me though

    Thanks for the replies. I hope I'll get used to it!

    It probably won't bother me anyway once the next toy arrives
