Hi I just got a flight deck model 6501. Unfortunately
the manual is for the 6500.
I wonder if somebody knows the differences between the
models or even better an online manual for the 6501.

Also is it possible to preset the odometer on the 6501?

Thanks for your help.

I just went through this last month and someone posted the 6501 user manual for me. It was a big help. I have the manual at home on my hard drive and can forward it to you when I get home. Actually, my post should still be in the archives under the "general" discussion group. I'll dig it up and give you the url.

... it's in JPEG format but should be clear enuff...

The main difference 'tween 6500 and 6501 head unit was your abovementioned odo resettability. The 6500 and 6501 head units are interchangable 'tween the older wired and wireless mounts (and again, ironically, the wireless unit still has wires to the lever sensors).

We abide.

Remain In Light.
