To change operation between vibrate and sound mode, turn unit off and turn back on but continue to hold down button 1. The unit will cycle between vibrate and beep options. Let go when desired option is current. Unit will remember this next time it is turned on.
UsageEnsure lens is pointing straight ahead horizontal to the ground.
Swing arm slowly from side to side in cane sweep motion, ensuring lens remains pointing forward and not at ground or sky. When base station is located unit will beep or vibrate.
Once base station is located, turn so chest is towards signal. Keep hand controller still, pointing straight ahead. Swing shoulders to left and right until signal stops on either side. Determine middle point between both sides and move in that direction.
If signal is lost, backtrack a couple of steps, relocate base station and repeat.
We recommend practising a few times before permanent placement of base stations.
