There seemed to be no one place where all the coils are listed, and XP was pretty quiet about the LF coils going away, so I have to admit I was not too clear on the current situation myself. It was as much for my own edification as anything.

Great roundup of specs, Steve.  Couple of comnents.

I know the "inch equivalent" dimensions are approximate, but regarding the HF elliptical, 24 cm = 9.44 inches so I typically refer to that as a 9.5 x 5 inch coil. All the other inch equivalent dimension approximates are close enough within a few tenths of an inch.

FWIW - there are software backwards compatibility issues with the newer coils.

The original LF coils will work with any version of Deus software from Ver 1 through Ver 5.21 (the latest release).

The HF coils and X35 coils are not compatible with SW below version 4.X and the X35 coils require version 5.X for full functionality (the HF coils have full functionality with either version 4.X or 5.X software).

The Deus SW upgrade features allow you to roll back to any previous "stable" or "bug free" version of the Deus software though coil functionality is limited as stated above and HF coils should not be "downgraded" to ver 3.2 or below as you may "brick" them, rendering them unusable and requiring a trip to the repair facility for recovery.  Note that any time you upgrade or downgrade software versions, all custom program and controller/coil profile settings are deleted and reset to factory defaults.

Now that I have confused everyone...enjoy the info.

The pics and dimension/kHz info is straight out of version 3 and version 5 of the owners manual. That's not to say it's entirely accurate, but I am just matching what XP has published themselves. Thanks for the extra software info. I considered getting into that but was keeping it simple. Maybe in the next "deluxe" version. :smile:

Yeah, I have seen XP Americas refer to that elliptical as the 9.5" coil on their website, so I guess they go back and forth on that one.  No biggie, the metric dimensions are exact so people can use Google to do the exact conversion if they are so inclined.  Thanks again for the compilation.  You really have to dig around the various XP online pages to compile this info on your own.

      I stopped for a bit of detecting after work and set up my Orx which I have in a backpack. I have 2 Orx set-ups which means two WSAudio headphones and two Mi6  pinpointers, and I had the PP paired to the other Orx so I had to remove the Mi6 currently paired to the remote and pair the one I had on me. So having done that I turned the pp on to locate a target. At this time the remote went to the   
      pinpointer screen and then started just beeping strangely and not working. I turned off the pinpointer but the remote stayed on the pinpointer screen beeping. I tried turning off the remote power but it would not power down - it said
                                 Turn Off   Turn Off 
      but holding the power button would not turn it off but It would just Go back to the pinpoint screen. Nothing was working to turn it off and stop the beeping but eventually pressing the top right arrow button got it out of pinpoint mode and I was then able to power down. When I turned it back on everything was back to normal and I was able to detect.    Anyone’s guess as to what the problem was, but if it happens again I’m going to contact XP service center
      ( does anyone have the phone and email for them in case I need to contact them?). 
       Has any Orx or Deus user had a similar thing happen?  
       Glad I have 2 machines in case one goes out for service  
       
            Enjoy the Independence Day weekend  HH

      Looking at Uber expensive detectors. As we all know White's is on the way out and the V3i will not be available long. This may be the last chance to get hands on a factory new unit. In light of that it has crossed my mind to get one as a historical investment. Now with all that out of the way, we know it is heavy and that it loves batteries but can use Ni-MH batteries in the pack. Weight, nothing we can do about that. My mind is more about the longevity of the V3i, is it a very durable detector?  I know all about the multitude of settings, and that is one thing that draws me to it. A Tinkerer's dream, more like a computer than a detector. Bottom line, is it worth the price?
      XP Deus. Had an ORX a while and loved the weight and ease of use. Hated the wireless headphones and they dug into my ear but I tell ya when it is hot weather that would sure be better on you. The ORX was somewhat crippled compared in settings, only giving 3 tone audio. It also had higher frequencies than the X35 coils do. The model I am looking at is the one with WS4 headphones and 9" round X35 coil.
      Between those 2, which is worth the bucks??
      Thanks
      Rob

      I went hunting this evening with a friend who was using his Equinox while I was trying out the orx. Yikes!! The orx doesn't like being near the Equinox at all. Is there something I can do besides turn my sensitivity down. That seemed to work but I was hoping there was another option. Thanks!

      I see that the coil itself has a battery, in it ? question how hard is it to replace one , or is it even possible ?
