    Wouldn't a weather bad enough to impair a GPS make a pressure based altimeter equally unreliable?

    my opinion i think this watch GPS work aspirate if you on it so the triple sensor stay working as before

    Well certainly I'm no expert on this. I'm sure that very bad weather could cause problems for a pressure-based altimeter. But, in my experience it doesn't take much to cause trouble for GPS... Even heavy cloud cover can do it. So I'd think the pressure-based altimeter would probably be preferred over one based on GPS. That's my guess, anyway.

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...

    My understanding is that the accuracy of a GPS elevation is dependent on the quality of the underlying map data -- basically digital topo maps. Sometimes this works well, other times not so much. I think keithy talked about this either on f17 or f296.

    Here is keithy's post about GPS altimeters.

    I was under the impression the triple sensor is the same as the current Rangeman. Compass/Thermometer
    Altimeter/Barometer. Why would the Rangeman have a depth gauge? The triple sensor is still avaible as a alternative/backup in case of GPS system failure. A redundant system that can use solar power only.
