    button fix

    I was a tester for the Kruzer before it was released and really like the unit. So much that I recently purchased the Anfibio.
    One of the few criticisms I had for the Kruzer was the button placement and size. The buttons most used like pin point and Ground balance were crowded with the other buttons and the buttons themselves were flat/small and close together which made making changes with gloves on frustrating. I shared this with Makro and was hoping that would be improved upon but unfortunately the same set up was used on the Anfibio.
    Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy using these detectors and the performance is up there with the best of them. I just think the ergonomics need a little work. The engineers should put on a pair of heavy work gloves before they start a test session so they have real world data for their ergo testing.
    To be fair, I also had this problem with the Deus as the buttons were bigger but were flush, so with a control head cover on they were hit or miss when wearing gloves.
    I decided to solve this issue the same way I did with the Deus, with self stick buttons. I bought a pack of 100 for around 5 bucks. Works great even with the control head cover on and they can be peeled back off with no damage.

    It can be difficult to hit an inner button with gloves on, add some mud and then it's really a trick to do quickly.
