    WTF

    I just got my dud pair of Leica Geovid HD-B Binoculars back (after an absence of some 10 & 1/2 weeks) and was checking through the menu of the new firmware that was installed in the Leica factory in Portugal, and in the SID (Sight In Distance) feature, it give three options in Meters and in Yards.

    The first sight in distance for the yards and meters said 100, the second option said 200, the third option, for yards said 300, however, the third option for meters said GEE, which was exactly what I said when I saw it also! Knowing that this was a bug in the newly installed firmware, I checked the instruction manual (page 42) to see what it 'should' be saying, and it says 'GEE' meters!

    Is there such a measurement, or is 'GEE' what these German / Portuguese ('foreign') people think we (English speaking humans) say for 300, I mean, do I select GEE if I want my sight in distance to be 300 meters or what?

    Nah, two of us here in our 50's and never, ever heard of it! So GEE m = 300 meters, in other words, yeah?

    Just Googled it and got this:


    "Urban Dictionary: Gee
    Urban Dictionary: Gee
    Top Definition. Gee. Dublin slang for female genitalia. The whack of her gee was brutal ... Gee. Irish slang term for a vagina. "Mary is a complete pain in the arse."


    I fail to see how any of this correlate's to hundreds... at any rate, I'd prefer to see '300' myself!

    Wouldn't have a clue Martin! I'm still grappling with what 'GEE' has to do with meters??

    If you find out either, let me know!

    Maybe read the rest of the manual. That could be just a code for setting the zero distance, but when you actually use the rangefinder in real life it will display 300 as normal.

    Yeah, my trouble is, I've read the whole manual before, and didn't even pick up on this! All I was wanting to do is set the zeroing distance to 300m, for both this and the rifle!

    Check page 214 (at least on the version I found)

    "TABLE: 3 ZEROING RANGE GEE (MOST FAVORABLE ZEROING RANGE)"

    GEE seems to be a unique zero point set for each of the default ballistic curves.

    Yes, I can see the page you mean alright, that's probably it alright. Have you seen or heard of GEE before?

    No, it's a new term to me. Appears to be an abbreviation of the German wording..

    "TABELLE 3: FLECKSCHUSS-ENTFERNUNG GEE (GÜNSTIGSTE EINSCHIESS-ENTFERNUNG) / TABLE: 3 ZEROING RANGE GEE (MOST FAVORABLE ZEROING RANGE) /"

    I just ignored it and set for 100y as that was the zero when I had a 7mmRM.

    It broke Google translate and tells me that the german phrase "GÜNSTIGSTE EINSCHIESS-ENTFERNUNG" translates into english as "GÜNSTIGSTE EINSCHIESS-ENTFERNUNG"....???????

    So I added spaces and got a literal translation of "Favourable On Shooting Distance". What that is supposed to mean I am not certain....
