    Off Topic post What's so great about the 3031 module??

    While going through the forums I notice a lot of people commenting on how great or cool the 3031 is without really saying why its so good. So I was just wondering, what's so great about the 3031 module?

    For all forumer to lazy to google for it:

    Its the G-9000 Mudman module.

    The feature set is very good balanced on that module:
    2 Stop watches with progress bar in the display
    repeating CDT
    4+1 Alarms
    World time
    Cool double illuminator (for a more nerdy appearance at night)
    Beefy battery CR2025 (amaongst the largest used in current G-Shock lineup)
    Not to much "cinema" in the display
    Low temp resist

    Con:
    Time not visible in all modes.

    And of course some pics:

    d2mac: thank you for the reply and great pics!! but yes I know all that, I have a muddy too (g9000ms-1) . its just that they way people commend it just got me curious as to whether there was something really really special about it lol.

    oh and you mention the battery, so how long is one supposed to last? I just use the alarm,hourly signal and light once in a while.

    The 3031 can be considered as one of the better modules, with more advanced functions than most others. It has a relatively unclutterd display and shows all important data at once in the main menu - time, day of the week and date. Personally I find the 3194 - found in the G-7900 - even better. It is basically an upgraded 3031 with a moon and tide graph added. Casio did an amazing job on the G-7900 series (for me the best of all g-shock's) and they did someting you rarely ever see: A slightly more cluttered display but without being cluttered to the point of annoyance - perfectly balanced.

    ... and the 3194 module is also available as the GLX-6900 in various colours, if you prefer a 6900-shaped G

    The Search function on vBulletin forums isn't very smart. If you want to search for a complete string in the G-Shock forum, or for posts which include multiple words, use Google, and enter site:forums.watchuseek.com/f17 into the search box. Then use normal google syntax after that to enter your search.

    Another 3031 reincarnation:
    The GLS-5600, mudman functionality in the classic 5600 shape:

    Interesting! I don't have one of those, but I do like the 5600 shapes. Does that show time in STW and CDT modes?

    The manual is ambiguous - I infer that it shows the time in STW mode until you start the stopwatch, at which point it shows hours. Is that correct? And the time is always shown in CDT, yes?

    However, I'd prefer a positive display. The search for the perfect G continues...

    Yes, that is correct. I'm with you on the hunt for the perfect module - I also already found it - but unfortunately it's not in a G-Shock but in the Casio databank model DB-E30 ( I wrote a little review about it) - this module is as perfect as it gets IMO. But there are a few G-Shocks that come close:
    G-8000
    GW-9200
    GW-2500 (if it had a 24 hr timer it would be perfect I think)
    G-3010/3011 (only 60 min STW but time in all modes, alarms are not setable for date)
    GA-100/110 (100 hr STW, 24 hr timer, 4 alarms + snooze and time in all modes because of the ana-dig, but alarms are not setable for day/date like on 3031 or the databank models)
    and a few non-G Casios that are even better
    DB-E30 (already mentioned - time in all modes, 24 hr STW/CDT, quick return feature, 5 alarms - AL1 with optional snooze and all with seperate indicators on the display like on the G-9000/GLX-6900/G-7900)
    DB-37 (basically almost as good as DB-E30 but with 10-year battery instead of solar and no real world-time, just double time)
    DB-36 (same as DB-37 but with a few buttons more)
    AE-1000/2000 (only thing missing to make it perfect is the snooze alarm)
    SGW-300 (once again the snooze is missing)
    SGW-400 (same as SGW-300 but ana-digi)
    SGW-100 (very good and has snooze but only 60 min STW)
    Too bad that Casio put those databank modules in some really ugly models :
    DB-E30:


    G-3011:

    G-3010:

    And those stop watches go up to 1000 hours each.
    Nice collection. I want a Storm Trooper to go with my MS-1 : (
