Gray RS 3300 vs. Black BH 3300 Discovery

#1
Hi guys,

I've seen people say that the 3300 does not retain notch settings when switching from Disc to pinpoint mode. Some say "you're not doing it right".


NOTE: THE MANUALS ARE DIFFERENT!

Ok, page 11 of the Gray RS 3300 manual:
_____________________________
To use the NOTCH Mode:
The NOTCH touch pad can be depressed at any time. But for
first-time use, place the detector in ALL-METAL mode.

A first demonstration is best accomplished as follows:

1) Turn the power OFF.
2) Turn the power ON.
3) Press NOTCH.
A flashing "R" will appear under the IRON-1 segment.
4) Press the DISCRIMINATION ▲ touch pad several times.
Notice that the "R" moves upon each press of the
DISCRIMINATION ▲ touch pad.
5) Press NOTCH again.
The flashing "R" will become permanently illuminated.

The black BH 3300 acts just like this in DISC or ALL METAL mode and retains notch settings when switching modes.

The Gray RS 3300 does not in DISC mode. When you hit notch (step 4) a flashing R appears under 5c/PT, NOT IRON 1 as the black BH manual says. It does act like the Gray RS manual says.

You can press Disc ^ and move it to say SC and press notch and it will stay there. However, when you switch to pinpoint and back to Disc, the R under SC is gone.

I have tried this several times. Any one have one to compare???

I believe the RS model just flat out has different software and does not retain setting which would answer the age old argument of yes it does, no it don't.
