How do you go about setting the correct moon and tide settings. I live in the UK and the nearest setting would be Blackpool. Tonight it should be showing Full moon and yet my setting is showing blank

If I'm not mistaken, the moon graph looks "full" when it's a new moon and empty when it's full. I was unsure at first too.

Yeah, a full moon will show up as blank (no LCD blocks) and a new moon will show up as fully black (all LCD blocks)

I thought the same thing and was sure something was wrong with it. You'd think it would be the other way around.

If i remember this correctly, in the timekeeping mode when you adjust later in the the settings there is a "n" or "s" and it determines which way it displays.

See LUW in https://www.watchuseek.com/f17/g9300-mudman-moon-function-719490.html#post5283605

"Moon phase display is dependent on latitude, not longitude, so it doesn't matter on what time zone (longitude) you are, but your latitude - if you're North or South of the equator.

Usually when you set your home city the module takes care of the moon display (if IIRC the 3261 does that) ."

For the current moon phase, see http://www.moonconnection.com/moon_phases_calendar.phtml

I can check the moon phase indicator on my Mudmen for the progress (movement of visible part of the moon left>right, or right>left) regarding the upcoming days to see which is the correct setting...N>S or S>N. Somehow the setting for my home city Paris (Amsterdam) is N>S...therefore "reversed" as opposed to what the manual indicates! But check moon phase indicator on your watch to find out which setting applies, and you'll be fine.

Not sure whether the Frogmen works the same though. LUW says in the same thread..."On both my 8200 and 1000 Frogs it was reversed, but I was able to set it right."
