I just realized that my Flightdeck 6500 came with a 6501's manual. I was trying to figure out how to set the initial mileage per the manual's instructions but couldn't get to the right setup screen. I did a search on flightdeck and was looking at the manuals this person posted when I realized there were two different versions and that I've got the older one. The 6501 has a setup screen for initial mileage but the 6500 doesn't seem to. Anyone aware of a way to do this on a 6500?

Also, how often do you guys change batteries? The computer seems to go through one every 4 months or less. The sensor (I've got the wireless version) battery is still going after 6 months.

I change out battery (about 8-10 mos.) in increments of 1000 miles to keep an easy odometer record.
