Just recently got a CG500 for my birthday... Looking for others with this strange calculator...


I am disappointed CG500 fails to perform operations and actually lacks features of their better calculators fx 9750/9860/CG10/CG50...


For example, they failed to include a CONVERSIONS app entirely now in CG500!

It's still a clumsy process to extract and use constants; or am I missing something?


There is no proper formal Matrix Editor which would make creating, and editing existing Matrixes much easier!

CG500 uses same method that TI-nspire does, but is prone to problems.


I actually do like the Stylus approach! CG500 accurately, reliably does highlight, copy, paste properly in my experience.

Moving objects from one screen to another does work; although you must be certain what it is you are dragging!


The lack of a simple Drawing, Doodling app seems silly as with such a nice large screen, it would prove itself useful in many classroom demonstrations!


I have successfully done the TI-nspire "Personal Polynomial" tutorial on the CG500, although this is a rather trivial affair; it was useful to learn about CG500.


I also have no issue with CASIO considering using RECHARGABLE BATTERIES in their calculators, because this would allow the charger to be connected,

WHILE a student/instruction uses the calculator! This means filling landfills with batteries COULD BE GREATLY REDUCED!


I have so many questions for anyone who has emersed themselves into the CG-500, many things I still do not quite understand the philosophy behind, so

if you would like a technical review of every feature of the CG-500, feel free to chat with me... :)


I can also be reached via Twitter :: https://twitter.com/Maverich40


Hope everyone is having a productive day and week!


I look forward to hearing from other CG-500 users :)

It seem there are not too many fx-CG500 users here. I have the feeling Casio's development for the smaller models is much more active.
