    [QUOTE=ColonelDan;6127068]..... reasoning for going with 3 tones.....

    Just checking in to see if you still prefer 3 Tones? I am getting things ready (waiting for the erosion to arrive) and looking at two tones as well as three tones.

    Appreciate all your insight Col.Dan!

    Hello.Great info! i changed my zones and tones in Park 1 with no problem. I took it out and tested. I then tried to change Park 2. It wont let me change the zones. so i tried field 1&2 and same thing....cant change the zone out of T1. Any ideas? or do i possibly have a defective machine? Thanks

    So others can learn, the problem was that the default tones for Park 2 (and Field 2) is 50 vice 5 tones, so if you want to do the same thing in those modes, you need to switch tones from 50 to 5.

    Even if you figure something out on your own, it helps to post back and let people know what the fix was as it may help people now or in the future who are having the same problem.

    Anyone wanting to give this a whirl and not commit to changing the default Park 1, go to the user profile and adjust it from there and you will keep the factory setup intact, then you can just click back and forth while test driving it.

    Everyone hears things a little differently and processes audio a little differently, so this is about providing choices on a commonly used tone option ML chose not include with Equinox. Has nothing to do with "finding more" but preventing audio information overload for Equinox users stuck with the 5 and 50 tone options or the too limiting beep and dig 2-tone option.
