Does your put age as a consideration in dispensing the MultiPro?  My
experience with Resound, with other persons, suggests that sometimes
2 memories are difficult.  I usually start with the identical program
in both memories as a start.  Later I'll modify the second memory for 
less low freq. amplification for noisy situations, like crowds.

My thoughts are that older persons may have trouble remembering what
setting is for what...
