I just purchased my unit. Contrary to the latest manual (p.28), I see no menu option to change the units in the RF spectrum display from dB to Watts. My menu looks similar to the menu shown on that page. But my option "RF Browser Unit" does not change the display units which are defaulted to dB. The options on that line are only:
mW/m2
V/m
No matter what I do the spectrum display shows dB.

Hi Bill D. Sorry there's no more option to change RF Spectrum unit to watts. We should update the user guide. The RF Browser unit is for RF Browser screen.

Thanks for your reply. dBm is not as useful as watts and the other screens on the meter read in watts necessitating a conversion. Why was the option removed? (I guess I should not complain since the the RF spectrum display is really a bonus feature.)

We thought dBm is a better unit in spectrum.

FYI, EmfDev, in the All-in-One mode, while displaying EMF, milligauss is misspelled on the units submenu ("milligause"). Not a big deal, of course. I just received my unit so I assume this is the latest firmware--2.57.
