    Rangeman GPR-B1000 GPS issue

    I noticed that when the battery changes from 3 notches to 2 notches the GPS automatically goes OFF and is no longer available. it seems strange to me for a watch born for survival! Because?? Normal???

    It is not an "issue." It's how the watch was designed.

    If you read the manual there is a section that talks about it behaving this way and it is intended to do this.

    Re: Rangeman GPR-B1000 GPS issue

    As I noted in the other GPR thread, I have used my beast extensively since I’ve had it (albeit only a week), and am running a constant 4 bars with only solar charging....

    It's a survival watch. GPS eats batteries. When battery gets to 2 bars it shuts down GPS but all other functions are available. BTW You can use a battery pack to recharge. Notice the charging indicator is on.

    Re: Rangeman GPR-B1000 GPS issue

    I think it's a forcing, the user should decide until they go with the use of GPS, even to the end, however after the initial euphoria, I find this model an attempt by Casio that was not followed up in development and upgrade, a boundary line between a clock and something more, so the owner would have liked development and support activity, which is completely lacking. I sold both my Rangemans. Another piece of Casio's choices, from the GWN-Q1000 onwards, that did not particularly satisfy me. I know I am very critical, but I am faithful and fond of some principles that have accompanied me in over 4 years of collector.

    With this future I'm sorry but my choice is Garmin fenix 5 Plus, everyone has to do their job, Casio may have forgotten it and she needs a few years of testing to learn that of others

    Dear fcasoli!

    After using the Rangebeast excessive in my holidays, I may disagree! Used in bright sunlight it will run endless. Tracking and saving waypoints is easy, so the most important function: the trackback!

    I also have a Garmin instinct, but was disappointed , since the highly praised runtime, goes down to two days, if used hard.

    Getting lost is easy, even in Austria (not in the jungle). Finding back, going from saved point to the next, is the main feature of this watch — with the solar charging.

    Criticism is only as long, as it is a toy, in real usage it is a great tool,
