    Be aware that if you perform a 'Full reset' it resets, i.e. erases, all MySets!

    I wanted to test something, so I did a full reset, intending to return later to one of my 'MySet's, only to find out that all MySets were reset to 'No data'.

    My suggested work-around is to keep the factory defaults in one of the MySets, and use it if you want to return to these settings, rather than the buit-in 'Reset'.

    That's the idea of a full-reset....it fully restores every setting to the defaults.

    Manual, pg 42 - "To reset all settings except the time and date,
    highlight [Full] and press OK."
