    Rangeman GPR-B1000 navigation screen question.

    Hello!
    I face the following problem:
    Whenever I go to the navigation screen I get only one flashing point, which shows my current location, the Start, Destination and Waypoints. All I can see are the straight lines connecting these points. No matter what I have tried, I can't get the continuous graph connecting these points.
    Please advise!
    Thank you,
    askalot.

    I'm not quite sure what you mean by "straight lines" vs. a "continuous graph" connecting the points.

    Is it a problem of being able to zoom in/out on those points? If so you can change the viewable perspective, smallest view is down to 1 mile I think. And it goes out to like 20 miles. Is that the type of thing you're talking about?

    WatchUP69 has done a series of excellent YouTube vids on this watch so you may be able to pick some tips up there.

    I also like to recommend the videos of WatchUP69 on YouTube! This will answer all your questions.

    On the picture you have posted the point are to narrow. Second, if you have in the app just the waypoints and not the normal points, you will see straight lines from one waypoint to the next.

    Re: Rangeman GPR-B1000 navigation screen question.

    I think it's simply a matter of making your route longer (add lots of waypoints and make it at least several miles long), and making sure on the nav screen that you've zoomed into the smallest scale possible. It's been mentioned before & I agree that the scale should go smaller (like .25 mile instead of 1 or 2 miles). Not likely to happen though, until maybe Rangeman Nav v2.

    When planning a route, a straight line between the waypoints is all this watch is capable of. It will never show a curvy, crooked line between waypoints before you walk the route.

    The navigation screen (with the curvy, crooked line) shown in the manual and on Casioís promotional photos of the watch isnít the planned route. It is the trail of where the user actually walked.

    So, the short answer is- no, what you are wanting isnít possible until you have walked the route. Even then, the path you walked will show up on the screen, but the watch will not guide you back along it. The watch will give you a straight line path back to the nearest/next waypoint. You would have to kind of manually make sure your position indicator stays on the path if you wanted to follow the same route back.

    The thing to keep in mind about this watch, is that itís not intended to be your sole navigation source on a five day hiking trip. It is intended for pure survival purposes. For situations where your primary GPS or navigation tools quit or got lost. This watch can then serve as a back up, programmed with a few waypoints to get you someplace safe.


    And, I absolutely agree WatchUp69 videos are great tutorials.
