A prime example of how every manufacturer should be.... Nokta is sure leading the way in customer service and no doubt satisfaction.  I feel sorry for the other manufacturers that are stuck in their arrogant ways, it's going to come back and bite them sooner or later.  I for one appreciate you coming here to keep us informed Dilek.

It would take a lot to get me to buy any new detector now that lacks an update function. All new releases for quite a few years now have needed updates, and the only ones that have not is probably just because you get what you get and that’s the way it is going to be. Even if the machine needs improving after release any manufacturer that puts out a detector without an update feature will be resistant to the very idea. I’m betting the Garrett AT Max would have benefitted from a post release update, but lacking the update feature... well, it’s just not going to happen.

Just something to consider on all new releases these days.

So I’m assuming (I haven’t tried it yet) that on start up of the Simplex,  one will see the software version on the lower part of the screen. Good to know thanks.

      My Simplex arrived today, and of course its snowing and 25 degrees out.  Yesterday it was 75.  So I'm stuck inside for a few days and  figured I might as well make the most of the situation.  
      Very well made unit.      Here are some Target ID numbers, air testing,  Silver half... 94  .Silver  25c …...90,   silver dime  ...83,   nickle...25, one cent copper...73, 1c zinc  66,  $1 gold coin...22,  $2.50 gold....38, $5 gold, ….56.   I like the wide spacing between the coins at the upper end of the scale. 
      TRASH...……. rusty bottle cap....30's to 50's, plated cap....55,  round pulltab with tail extended....30,  round pulltab with tail bent over the ring....36,  tail.....21, square tab....30, 3/4 " long lead fishing weight.....38.  Alum twist cap...68.             
      The relic mode tested out the deepest , followed by all metal , then park mode.  I 
      In relic mode, I manually set up the GB at 90, full sensitivity , volume at 4, no headphones. Inside my 12 x 24' shop with 3 fluorescent lite fixtures and a pellet stove cranking out heat. 
      Repeatable audio signal,  50c silver …...17"...…. VID readout 11"...……...25c silver ,  14"  &10"...……...10c silver, 13" & 9",  5c......14" &11",  1c copper, 14" &10" ,  Ultra thin womans 14k gold ring......13"  &10"
      $1 gold coin, 11" & 8",  2.50 gold coin..13" &10",  4% gold coin...15" & 10".   
      In park mode with is 3 tone, and a faster speed, for better separation,  same settings,  as the relic mode,   solid audio & solid VID readout is as follows.  50C....13" & 11", 25c....12" & 10", 10c....10" & 9",
      5c....12" & 10",  1c..10" & 9",  ultra thin gold 14k gold ring.....10"  & 9" ,  $1 gold...9" & 6",  2.50 gold..11"  & 9", $5 gold..12" & 10".  
      Air depths in all metal mode  were about an inch greater than the audio in park mode. 
      These are all air tests, it will be interesting how this unit does in real soil testing conditions.  
      I had an EQ800 and loved it, but had to let it go in summer when my wife ran up some hefty medical bills.  This unit is waterproof like the EQ,  but an affordable price tag( for me).  I think I will really like the expanded target readout range.  That was one thing I disliked about the EQ, was the compressed  VID numbers.  The EQ was one heck of a performer , but I think I will have just as much fun with this unit!  When it warms up I will get out and share my results , thoughts and opinions!  HH.  Red

      Hi all...new to forum as I am also new to metal detecting. Just received my Simplex, going over the settings and I noticed something that I hope other owners can help me with. In the manual it says there are 5 Frequency Shift settings, F1 thru F5. In every YouTube video I've watched, that shows the settings of the Simplex, I've seen these 5 "F" settings. But on mine I have just 3 (F1, F2 & F3). Does anyone know why mine is just showing 3? Yes I've updated the firmware and running v2.68. Note: it was also showing just 3 Frequency Shift setting options before I updated the firmware from v2.67.
