    Whaaaa!!!!!!

    I think it looks good. I've been waiting for features like that. Price point is a bit high but it might be worth it considering the value you get out of it...

    cheers
    Probably not if it’s solar. There’s already a lot going with it for being solar. But if it has Bluetooth and can be paired with a phone, maybe.

    You are right that altitude and depth are both inferred from pressure, but the scales of change are so different between the two mediums it would almost certainly be impractical to use one sensor for both jobs. In water, the depth range 0-80m is a pressure range of 1 BAR to 9 BAR, while air pressure changes (roughly) 0.0001 BAR with 1m altitude change - that is five orders of magnitude different.

    I would think from an engineering standpoint that it would be much more practical, sensible, cost-effective etc to include two separate sensors rather than to build one that is both robust enough to do depth, and also sensitive enough to do barometric/altitude. The Q1000 Gulfman with a depth sensor would seem to back this up, since it does indeed include separate sensors for depth and altitude (described as 'quad-sensor' in the marketing). :) I mean, I'd love to be proven wrong but I doubt it unfortunately.

    Oh...Thanks for the explanation!

    the resin bezel looks a last minute snap on to me. The real product better be better looking.

    The PRG-240 and PAG-240 were introduced in 2010 according to PacParts.

    So.....they are calling this Rangeman "triple sensor," correct? It does have a depth sensor, right?? Thought I heard or read that somewhere. So the triple sensors are what -- Baro pressure, depth, and temp? Then as with current Protreks, I assume the pressure sensor would also be used for an Altimeter? Then in place of the Bearing sensor used for compass readings on all current triple sensor Gs and Protreks, we'd have the GPS navigation system instead...

    If Casio wanted to though, couldn't they allow the GPS tech to function as the altimeter also??? What do you guys think? I guess maybe that's not a great idea, relying on GPS for your altimeter, since GPS can be impacted by the weather - and you want to have the altimeter available when you need it... Plus, it would use a lot of energy.
