    Great photo comparison. I think the strength of this watch is the large, clear time/date display.
    It is the only LCD watch in the world that I know of to have a complete, fully written, day of the week. That's a huge plus and I hope it carries over to future Gshocks.

    What you describe indeed is something that is possible and something the Rangeman will be able to do as well.
    I thought you meant that you want it to make a breadcrumb route by itself when for example navigating to a saved location, without having actually travelled this route before. That it creates a route which you can exactly follow to get to the location.
    But backtrack is something it should be able to do. Turn on GPS, walk for a few hours and it will make breadcrumbs every minute or every 4 seconds which you can backtrack when finished.

    I’m starting to like this new Rangeman after seeing all these pictures

    Couldn’t go for any hike but tested it during the drive to work. Just set navigation and go. Second pic is screen in backtrack mode.

    To be 100% honest, I think for most people, the GPS Nav functions are mostly a gimmick, rather than truly needed. I realize that's not true for everyone. However, I hunted for many years in my younger days, in heavily wooded areas. When you do that for years, you learn to pay attention to your surroundings and the terrain, and watch for landmarks that you can recall later. I never even needed a compass, and never got lost.

    If it's a true (or possible) survival situation, you should never bet your life on a device, whether Casio, or Garmin, or whatever. It can be used as an aid, sure. But if you are relying on it 100%, you might be in for trouble.

    That said, I understand the desire for a trackback capability and I'm sure the Rangeman provides it. Whether it does so automatically or not....don't know. The all-powerful manual will reveal ALL.
    Im sure the makers of this watch didn't design it as an $800 gimmick. Also many people hunt and trek in areas they have never been before, every one thinks they are an expert tracker till they get lost. Also I know a few people looking at this watch for a military purpose and most of the time when you are deployed you don't know the area well. Just a thought.

    Awesome, thanks for sharing! What interval did you use during your ride? 1-minute or 4-second?
    When backtracking, can you scroll through the route/zoom in and out etc?
    Does it have multiple screens, like one with an arrow and distance, on with just the route (as shown), one with other useful data?

    I used a 4-second interval.

    Didnt pay attention so don’t know if there is a scroll function (The centre crown actually scrolls). Using the the crown one can zoom in and out 40km,4km and 2km as per my pics. Further zooming in will show the compass.

    I'm into it.
    wish it had a bit less tech though.
