    From an ex-marine:

    "I have the Rangeman to and my readings are accurate. What you have to do sometimes is calibrate the settings; even though Casio calibrates them at the factory. You have to remember that the Casio watches will give you the temperature reading in conjunction to the air density readings from your barometer. However, with this said you have to calibrate your watch to your specific geographic location and that is why you have to input the correct latitude and longitude readings for the watch to calibrate to your specific geographical location; the watch will not do this automatically for you it needs your help with this.

    Once you do this the watch will adjust and give the proper readings. I am a retired Infantry Sergeant and in the past we used the SUUNTO's which for real life situations are GARBAGE they won't take the abuse of combat and its a regular battery operated watch. The U.S. ARMY changed to the Pathfinder / Pro-Trek line of Casio ABC watches for many reasons one of them being accuracy as long as you calibrate your watch properly. Ensure your latitude and longitude values are correct and then allow the watch 1 to 2 hours to calibrate its computer and adjust its settings. You should get more accurate readings once this is done. I had to reset the module on my Rangeman and then calibrate the settings. So if after you do this it does not work let me know and I will give you the directions on how to reset the module and then re-calibrate the watch. I've had my Rangeman now for 5 months and my readings are dead on target.
    Hopefully this information will help you. Don't loose faith and confidence in your G-Shock for they are the BEST watches in the world hands down"

    Am still in a dilemma whether to charge it under direct sunlight or not. I kept it in the sun for an hour and the battery meter went from M to H but the watch got fairly hot, that's kinda scary.

    I read somewhere some owners put the watch in a glass and keep it in the sun. Watch doesn't get hot but charges much faster than other weak light sources.

    I would avoid the glass bit. Just give it regular light for 30 minutes a day and you are good

    30 would be nice, manual says even 5 mins direct sun is good enough. Since noon the battery is at H lol.
