Mode Sel: With the unit on, press the button twice and select the Menu option and then Modes option. Select Mode Sel option and choose from Standard, Novice, Tandem or Swoop. Press the button at the appropriate mode you want to use. Follow that by pressing the button when Confirm is shown. Wait several seconds for the unit to display the mode you selected.

Firing Altitude & Speeds for the 4 modes.
STD: 820 ft/78 mph, NOV: 1000 ft/45 mph, TAN: 2200 ft/78 mph, SWOOP 820 ft/78 mph/Standby upon parachute opening.
Alt Adj: With the unit on, press the button twice and select the Menu option and then Modes option. Select the Alt Adj option. The altitude adjustment needs to be set to the landing zone altitude from the take-off zone.
In the demonstration, we show how to set an Argus for a jumper taking off from an airport at Mean Sea Level but landing at a landing zone of 500 MSL.
Select +500 feet under Alt Adj, pressing the button again at Validate and then confirm. If the Alt Adj has been properly entered, the Mode will be displayed in a few seconds with the altitude offset. If there is not an altitude offset entered on the unit, it will only show the mode
To remove the altitude offset follow the same procedures except select +0. Validate and Confirm the change and then wait for the Mode to be displayed without an altitude adjustment shown.
