As those undertaking adventures in nature may often find themselves without network coverage, this device may prove to be handy with its offline ‘low power GPS' and colour maps. A little bit of thinking ahead is required, however, as maps need to be downloaded ahead of time. Nine major developers partnered with Casio to provide the selection of popular outdoors and sports app that can be found in the “Featured App” list. Some of these downloadable options include ViewRanger, Hole19 and Fishbrain.
