Hey Brian,

No, but several more additions and you'll be in pamphlet range. thumbs up

This is good stuff Brian as it gets everybody out there thinking about the detector(s) they have and use and are they maximizing the ability of the detector? I spent a lot of time my first year with my 800 of comparing modes and settings over in the field targets. What setting(s) provide best audio and target ID results ?

Since that first year, there have been a couple software updates for the Equinox and each has brought more field visits and comparisons.

Like you mentioned, there are so many possibilities as the modes and options increase on a detector. I have a very simple to use Mojave that I keep for my grandson and there are few settings, but still, the audio of the Tesoro's is very telling as your train your ear to the Tesoro audio language.

To me, it seems that the detectors of each manufacturer have their own language (audio and visual) and behaviors that must be learned to really understand and gain a level of expertise. Randy referred to it with his Tesoro's and you here with your V3i and some others that responded to my expertise question on the general forum. Detectors have programmed behaviors bases on their hardware and software that in my estimation go beyond understanding the generic functions of a detector. It is how these various functions were executed and how they've been interwoven with each other to provide a final product.

Good response and I'll be looking forward to that book.
