What sets the Mel Meter 8704R Pro-Navigator apart from the basic Mel Meter 8704R is that the Pro-Navigator has Glow in the Dark buttons which really makes things easier when used in dark conditions. It also has an expansion slot. This is a cost saving feature for the user who thinks her or she later will want more features built in to their Mel Meter. It allows the Mel Meter to be upgraded with new features at any point in time. New features are released quite frequently. So instead of buying a new Mel Meter this one can be upgraded by contacting the seller. Summary of functions: Digital EMF, Digital Ambient Temperature, Red Back light Display, Red IR Flashlight, Glow In The Dark Buttons, Expansion Slot Included. Note: The Mel Meter does not come with the 9V battery that it needs to operate.

The description on Amazon touts this meter's rugged design and durability but I was a little surprised to find the buttons on the front feel slightly cheap. I have only had it a day so it's a bit early to anticipate whether they will have any problems, but I think they'll be ok if I'm careful. The unit is fairly solid and I'm surprised at how large it is. It's well over an inch thick from front to back.
Performance wise, the EMF detector is slow when the temperature gauge is on, but you can deactivate the temperature gauge to give the EMF readings a "fast" response. The backlight can be turned on or off and it's fairly bright - although I wish it had a half-light setting. The temperature probe feels lose and consists of a small box-like protrusion on the top with a wire sticking out of the top. I'm afraid that this wire will crack or break because anytime you bend wires they wear out faster. You'll need to bend the wire to store it. However, the temperature sensor provides a very good reading (within one degree of two other sensors I have) and responds fairly quickly. It's nice to have these two instruments in one package, although I don't believe I'll be leaving the temperature gauge on while measuring EMF.
A few tests I've performed with the EMF sensor show that my family room (with the electronics and tv) has a background level around 0.1-0.4 and I can get it to climb above 1.0 near the digital cable box. I haven't tried it with any major electrical boxes to see how fast and high it will climb.
By the way, this sensor allows you to choose different units of measurement for EMF (and temperature too), but it defaults to milligaus (the one paranormal researchers want) and resolves 0.1 mG units. It has a fold-out stand in the back of the unit which will work for our needs although I also worry about its durability over the long-term. It holds a 9-volt battery (not included) that has a cover that is sealed shut with a small screw (keep a screwdriver handy in the field for battery replacements).
The manual is a printed booklet - something that I could print in my house, but it covers the operation sufficiently.
I recommend this unit for anyone who uses EMF meters, especially those using it for paranormal research. Just be careful - I doubt it would survive too many drops on a hard surface.
