    Unexplained symbol on GW500A display

    Hi all,

    I looked through the manual but can't find the meaning to a tiny capital letter "E" that appears to the right of the signal strength display in timekeeping mode (only).

    BTW I notice on Casio's product page a picture of the face that shows a "P" above the signal strength. I assume they're related. See:

    Any ideas?

    No Idea,

    I can't see it in my GW-930 display. Isn't it the sign 24 hours is selected?

    Cheers,

    Well...actually reading the module manual will help with this . The manual for your watch is here (2688).

    Found under "Radio-controlled Atomic Timekeeping", under the subheading "To set your Home City". Right there on the 1st page, it says "E/C/M/P indicator". It stands for the time zones in the US (Eastern/Central/Mountain/Pacific).

    Re: Unexplained symbol on GW500A display

    The letter denotes what time zone in the USA you're in. P = Pacific, E = Eastern, M = Mountain, C = Central, if I remember correctly.

    Ha ha, that explains why I had no clue. Strange it's not on Eu models, we have GMT, CET and EET in the reception range.

    Cheers,

    Thanks all. My bad for poor vision. I completely missed that in the manual. Read it 2x too!

    Feel free to consider this thread closed!
