Easy to learn; 3 keypad switches: on/off and volume, sensitivity up and sensitivity down

Volume built into the on/off key; just hold down the key while it cycles through the settings

Electronic keypad that "clicks" when a key is depressed. A "real" speaker is in the front panel, providing outstanding volume.

Microprocessor remembers the volume and gain settings from the last time the unit was on

Non-metered (ML-1) and metered (ML-1M) versions are designed to look, feel and operate the same

Strong aluminum monotube construction from the tip through the end of the handle and ABS injection-molded electronics case (3 ¼" tapered to 2 ½"-wide X 4 ½" tapered to 2 ½"-deep) provide the best structural integrity in a hand-held locator
