Paper Manual

I know you can get the manual online. But I like to have the actual manual in my hands. You spend this kind of money you would think you would get one in the box. When you learn a new machine I always had one in my back pocket. Does anybody feel the same way?

In all my decades of detecting, I never carried a manual in my back pocket. I read through the manual, learn the functions, then got out in the field and started hunting.
Don’t get me wrong, I too like the idea of a manual in the box. Printing out large page manual isn’t cheap.

I keep a folder in my truck. I carry written permission (if I have that), contact info for verbal permission, manuals of the detector (Fisher supplies in the box), after market coil info if provided, maps of any areas outside the city that I may be detecting, and any other info I deem potentially needed or important. Folder rides above sun visor so easy to access and worth its weight in silver coins when I need it.

If you have a Staples nearby you can download to their website and for $15 you can get a black and white copy on fantastic quality paper in a spiral binder with plastic front and back covers. Well worth it.

I get your point but from a logistics point it be a foot thick with all the different languages and I hate sorting instructions with all the different languages:mad:

I thought it was dumb to not get a hard copy. Same thing for my new car, I had to ask the service mechanic to get me a hard copy.

So I downloaded the Nox manual to my PC and I have printed pages that I took into the field to test the specific functions.

Why would you carry a paper manual with you when you can simply have it on your phone? If I ever need to reference the manual, I simply check it out on my phone.

Half the places I go there is no cell coverage so opening downloads doesnt work so well

Ahhh, then you are clicking a link to the file and not the actual file itself. Ensure you download the file to your phone and then you won't need a net connection. Good luck!
