    Arogle1stus, your specs are outdated! A few other members were trying to tell you this before, but here you go again. As of August 2017 the official count of all G-Shocks shipped since inception was:
    100,000,000 G-Shocks shipped worldwide in 35 years!

    While I don't have an official figure, but if you count the total number of all Casio timepieces shipped, it got to be much more than 100 million!

    Well, I guess I'm out.

    I don't speak Japanese, but I studied the pics in the manual closely and so it seems that you actually cannot set a target location without using a phone. At least, I can't find any screenshot in the manual that suggests you could.

    For me, that's an absolute no-go. Even though I have an iPhone, I hate it. I don't want to take it whereever I go, I want tools that I can use without the freaking phone. Not only because I hate the phone, but also because the battery is always dead when you need it most.

    That's the whole beauty in the G-Shock range: G-Shocks give you all kind of handy features, that never break and help you get off the grid.

    If I need a phone to use the GPS, I might as well use my phone for navigation anyway.

    I really hope I'm either mistaken, or they'll fix this, because as is, I just don't understand why they would NOT enable you to just enter co-ordinates. It's not that that's so hard to do...

    Crap, I'm sad. I was looking forward to this watch, but I guess I'm not anymore.

    Thats a real shame if you are correct. What I find interesting is that from the commercial (the guy who breaks down in the jeep) that he pulls out a map and appears to enter in coordinates? I wish someone would do a review on GPS functionality very soon.

    Every post makes me think of the movie Groundhog Day. Same thing post after post, year after year. It used to annoy me, now I just chuckle.

    I would imagine that the watch has to be somewhat autonomous and would have some GPS functionality without the need for an application.

    The concern I’d have for a company’s first venture into this type of watch, how stable will their application be across all phone fronts, etc all for $800?

    As a AD on many fronts, I get to see a lot of the “behind the scene” issues that never make it to the public. Today I had a meeting with a Suunto rep who fully admitted that they rushed the Suunto Spartan Sport and destroyed the brand because of software that was half done. Guess that explained the 75% return rate...

    I’m hoping Casio put A LOT of time into this watch because like any watch that is “software” driven, kinks can be eventually worked out through software updates. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen anything mentioned regarding that about this watch if there are any issues.

    Maybe they are keeping the watch software stone-simple and hoping that any and all updates can be handled by updating the phone app... The downside is this will keep the stand-alone functions of the RM pretty "stupid" when compared to other smart watches.

    I was kind of thinking along these lines too. But in reality I think it makes sense to do it this way if Casio wants to keep this Navi RM mostly "independent" and not like other smart watches. I tend to think this is the approach Casio might have taken. And if so, I appaud them for it. The last thing I'd want to have to do is think about updating the watch's software regularly - nor would I really WANT it to update regularly even if it was mostly an automatic function. I think that could just introduce possible reliability problems for the watch.

    We'll soon find out though...with the release of the English-language manual imminent, and the watch following closely behind.

    I was also reading the manual. I gathered that you can set point of interests as Goal points and use the watch to navigate to them. Even my suunto traverse alpha is unable to create routes without the suunto app. However, entering coordinates does not seem to be present which my suunto can do.

    I think you also can simply begin gps tracking, walk however far you want to go and the watch will show your trail on the navigation screen without a goal point. At which point, you could track back to your location with it. This will come in useful for my hunting and fishing trips. The usage of coordinates is pretty cool and hopefully can be added later on.

    Obviously X Traindriver Art isn't the only person keeping the good ship Casio
    afloat.
    I can buy, for less than $300.00 or so, watches that provide more data than
    I'll ever need (or want) from Team Casio.
    I believe Citizen provides a watch, can't recall model number, that is Solar/
    Atomic. But not in the price range Casio sells them for. End of rant!

    Re: the next new RANGMAN GPR-B1000 ===>800$ ?

    yesterday as the watch date show from japan
    this is the real size of the pictures and they asking you come to store for traying it before you buy woow this is japan yess
    the article after translating it :
    "GPR-B1000-1JR" is before release, but you can try real products at shop front in multimedia Sapporo.

    G-SHOCK is a new product with GPS and navigation function.
    It shows the way I've been walking, and it also navigates the way back.
    In addition, it has a strong structure against shocks, so you can use it safely in any place such as mountains.
    And above all, it is big and has power to see easily.


    Hybrid system of solar and USB charging. The battery-powered time with GPS is up to 33 hours and lasts long.
    Should it be outdoors, even if it is out of sunlight, it will resurrect if it is sunlight at fine weather.


    By all means, please actually try "GPR-B1000-1JR" before the shop at the shop front.
    Since "GPR - B1000 - 1 JR" which you can use from people who are seriously outdoors to those who would like to use everyday is handled at the multimedia Sapporo 2nd floor clock section, wait for your visit We are.

    In addition, this item is scheduled to be released on March 9, 2018 (Fri), reservation is now being accepted.
