I have downloaded one. At $1099 retail it’s not asking a lot for a proper owner’s manual. It’s not like they’ve never included one before, I still have the one that came with my XTerra.Download one FREE, print out the pages you want and save a tree.
Minelab has made several firmware revisions since the 600/800 were introduced. Those firmware revisions also required revisions of the manual to keep owners up to date with the detector's capabilities. The most timely and expeditious way to do that is to provide updated manuals via the web site. This seems to work well for the masses who either want a hard copy manual or electronic version for their phone or tablet.I'm with ya GaryB ,,, they could print and supply the manual cheaper than we could because of mass production .
And if you're like me ,, I can't get the printer to work when I need it .
I printed one for the Legend , even had to buy an ink cartridge to get it done, then the Legend arrived with a factory printed manual enclosed. Once ahead NM is ahead of ML!No body does paper manual anymore. Greta Thunberg cries with each one
I like to have the manual in the field with me while I learning the machine. Fumbling around with a cell phone trying to find what I want to know on YouTube while dealing with sunlight and glare just doesn’t cut it.What's a manual? You tube is a good as any manual IMHO.
Saves money for MINELAB anyway----don't know about the customers!These detectors go all over the world so it has to have many different manuals for different languages is why they dont come with a manual. Instead they put the info on the web site so you can pick the language you need and print it. Save time and money for Minelab and the customers.
