    MB6 Received indicators

    I have several Casio watches to include two Gshocks that are atomic or Multi Band 6 now. 3 of the 5 have a received indicator that appears on the face to let you know that the watch synced during the night. I really prefer this indicator feature.
    The other two I have, a lineage and an anadigi ProTrek don’t have this feature and require a button push or several to check if the watch is up to date. It’s not a huge deal but I much prefer an indicator on the screen. I know a lot of F17’ers are familiar with these but new people to these great watches like I was when I found this great forum might find this info helpful or relative when looking at or for a Gshock or other MB6 Casio.

    My girlfriends baby G has a small Gshock G emblem in the right most eye that appears upon a successful sync. I think if I am right some MB6 Frogman models have a similar indicator. I find this to be the coolest of indicators! Anyone that knows for sure please respond as I am interested.

    My 5610 indicator is the rcvd in the uppermost left side of the face:

    The Rangeman 9400 indicator is just under the eye on the left side of the face and is a wedge shaped series of horizontal lines:

    My ProTrek Prw-2500 is similarly shaped and appears under the moon phase indicator in the upper left of the face:

    I am curious about other models and modules so any F17 members that have different examples please post them and Casio if your listening I like this feature on MB6 watches.

    Thanks for the response @CC. That model of gshock was the first gshock I owned. Really good size. Unfortunately mine was a negative display and I could not see the info in the sub windows well enough for it to be anything but annoying. I really like the one you posted, and I suspect if mine had been a positive display I would still have it. I really like that color scheme, very unique.

    The "G" inside the circle means successful received signal

    I wish my square didn't have an indicator, I'd rather push a button and then it could show if it received or not. There's so much clutter on the screen, after noon, in addition to time/month/date/day of week my square shows me:

    'P' for PM
    'DST' for daylight savings time
    'PS' for power save mode
    'RCVD' for received

    I could happily live without all of that constantly showing on the screen. And some squares/settings will show even more stuff, like battery level, alarms, silenced beep icon, etc.

    The GWG-1000 has it's own submenue just for that. I actually don't mind that it's not normally shown unless I want to look it up. When I'm wearing a square and it hasn't synched I'm always annoyed at that every time I look at it and will have to find a place to grab the freshest time. That's not actually necessary because it'll be accurate enough anyway so I actually prefer if it's more hidden.

    Gwm500/530 indicator is a satellite dish like icon. Many protreks just have a tiny triangle.
