Factory reset.

Post by DingDong » Sun Jun 16, 2019 9:50 pm

Hi all,
does a factory reset on a 400i tune it to a different coil, found articles saying it does on At Pro and you shd do it every time after changing a coil, can't find any info re 400i

cheers

Still using the original stock coil, suggest contacting Regtons or someone who sells the 400i.

A factory reset will do exactly that and bring all functions back to the same settings as when you first opened the box
It is often used in cases where too many settings have been changed, so resets them all again for a fresh start
Also used as a last resort if the machine develops a problem, it can sometimes be fixed by doing a factory reset
But i have never heard of anyone recommending a factory reset to tune a coil in

Contacted Garrett saying manual tells you how but when & why you should do it, here is the reply, BTW Regtons said the same.

"Is recommend to re-set any detector every time you change batteries, swapped coils or start using it for the first time after you assembled it or you not using for few days and removed the batteries, press and hold the power button until the detector gives 2 beeps. Will help the detector to perform better."
