    Help / question about G9300

    Hello so what I am wondering is, when I press the compass button it displays the direction and the temp for about 20 seconds. Like so.

    Is it supposed to do that? Or is it jacked up?

    As expected Noticed this on my GW-9300, after a few seconds of readout it also goes blank. Not sure why, guess perhaps a power saving thing.

    As Rutteger mentioned it's power saving function. In addition to the 20 second continuous compass measurement, it also takes temperature readings every 5 seconds. You can do store bearing memory every 20 seconds which allows you to take subsequent compass measurements:

    During the 20 seconds that the digital compass measurement is in progress, press (A) to store the current direction angle reading in Bearing Memory:

    The Bearing Memory direction angle flashes for about a second as it is stored. After that, the Bearing Memory screen will appear, and a 20-second direction reading operation will start. While the bearing memory screen is displayed, you can press (C) to start a new 20-second direction reading operation, which displays the direction angle for the direction that the 12 o'clock position of the watch is pointed.

    Technically you could have a continuous compass display if you use the bearing memory feature and press either (A) or (C) before your seconds are up LOL.

    From the 3261 Manual:

    Digital Compass
    20 seconds continuous measurement; 16 directions; angle value 0 to 359; four direction pointers; calibration (bidirectional, northerly); magnetic declination correction; bearing memory

    Thermometer
    Measurement timing: every 5 seconds in the digital compass/thermometer mode
