    yep...there are 19 preset programs built into the V3i...only the first 10 are visible on the main screens...but the other 9 are accessible from within the Library... there isn't any inof on them posted from Whites...you'll need to play with them to see how you like them or not like them....so far not many people have posted as to their likes or dislikes on those extra preset tprograms yet...but I'm sure people will start posting as soon as more find them in the V3i...

    yes but i think that some kind of basic info is needed as to what each program is good for, before they can be tested or used. for some kind of idea as to what the program is for.

    i agree we need more info on those programs

    beep dig is just a basic it beeps when it sees something and displays "dig" for you to dig it.
    MXT is Carl's best guess at emulating an MXT
    There are some color theme programs - the themes you see in the configure screen are all programs. Chestnut, pine, sunshine, dusk, fireside, and I think a couple more. Don't have them memorized. They will work if you choose them, but their settings are not set up for hunting - so they will not be good programs to use other than for the purpose they are intended for - colors.
    Coin is the old coin program on V3. Not removed, just moved out of the list that you see.
    Alluvial scan is a prospecting program that has the prospecting scan enabled. Might be a couple other setting changes from Prospect.

    With the exception of the legacy "COINS" program and the MXT emulation, the additional setups are just "demos" to show "themes".

    The MXT program, along with the others have been discussed previously.

    If you take a second to review the settings, you'll see that these programs, AT BEST are simply there as thematic samples and to demo capabilities.

    Other than the COINS setup - which you can easily replicate with the C&J program or the MXT program, I would recommend that you take a look, enjoy the colors, and say "that's nice".

    Hope this is helpful. Da FoX

    You could use those and the factory preset programs to get familiar with the "main" settings and what they do, while at the same time, become familiar with the Owner's Guide and with the menu structure within Spectra.

    Look at the program. Look at each setting, and see what you "THINK" it does based on its "name". Then look it up in the manual and see what it says. Then look it up in the machine and use the on-board Quick Reference to get a bit more info. By the time you get thru a few programs, you'll find that most are just variations in Sensitivity, Tracking speeds, Filter used and level of discrimination.

    If you learn to balance sensitivities, adjust tracking speeds, select the right filter for your sweep speed and ground, all you'll have to set is the level of discrimination - eg: what you want to "accept" and what you want to "reject". The rest of the things you will generally set up once ....

    Hope this is helpful. Da FoX
