programing without coil


Active member
Curious as to whether you can have just the control part on and do program adjustments or what have you with no coil connected.
Have a new V3i and spend considerable time sitting in my truck in ferry boat lines and would like to be able to just have the control box and touch pad in the cab and be able to run through adjustments etc.
Any harm in that?

Howdy Tbone1,

The only harm that I could see would be getting a ticket for distracted driving or getting rear-ended by someone texting and driving. :devil: . Customizing a program though, without a coil on, wont hurt your detector. Best of luck and...

Happy Hunting!

Been programming mine inside without the coil since 2009, no problems here.
