This thread might help as assuming the 600 and 800 are pretty much the same set up...

You will certainly dig more iron unless you adjust the Iron Bias, which is an advanced setting! Everything else can probably wait. Just ike the Safari you ave to decide whether to dig foil or not. You can do this by looking at the numbers or by rejecting the numbers where foil tends to appear. :D

2 would be a good start, if you have 2 on the 600

On the 600 it should be set at 1 to start with, which equates to about 2 on the 800. ::g
