You don’t need to bypass anything. Many ppl get confused by this. See if this write-up makes more sense;
Normally you begin each new fitting session by selecting a database client (which defaults to the latest fitting session) and then connect the hearing aids.
Upon hearing aid connection, the hearing aid fitting software will warn you about mismatched settings when the DateTimestamp of the hearing aid settings is a mismatch with the DateTimestamp of your database settings and it will prompt you to choose which settings to use (hearing aids or database).
When you get this mismatch warning, think carefully about why your hearing aid/HA settings differ from your database settings? If your hearing aids were last programmed by your Audiologist and you have a new/blank database then naturally you want to use the hearing aid settings from your audiologist. If you are replacing lost hearing aids with new hearing aids then your database has the only copy of the settings.
At the end of each fitting session the software gives you 3 choices for where to save the settings;
- The hearing aids
- The database
- Both the hearing aids and the database
For your first-self-programming-fitting-session you will want to use the settings from the HAs, make no changes, and save the original settings to your client database. This will produce a database copy of your Audi’s original unchanged-settings in case you need to revert back to these Original Professional Settings. Don’t worry about how to find it again. It will be the very first session. You can also tag it with a session name such as ORIGINAL SETTINGS. TIP: When viewing a client you may need to click an expansion arrow> in order to change the condensed view into an expanded view showing all client sessions, including the first session where your original settings are saved.
