Thanks for that Simon.  They have some nice looking screen covers.

They're very simple to put on, they can be removed and re-positioned if you stuff it up too.  And they're waterproof so they wont lose their stick under water, I really like it.

My Vanquish keypad cover arrived about a week ago, I've taken a while to bother putting it on.  I made the mistake of cleaning my Vanquish off with damp toilet paper ( Sorry to the Aussies among us with a toilet paper shortage 🙂 ) and that left a bit of white residue on the Red part at the top of the control box, I'll have to clean that off,  I didn't notice it until I saw the photos.

See the residue up the top there 🙂 I have a few bubbles in the screen protector I put on it too, can't be bothered replacing that, plenty of spares but it's doing the job so it can stay there.

All blinged up, ,it gets rid of the little chart at the top with coins and rings and so on, I find that thing completely pointless anyway.

I like the Equinox ones better but the Vanquish one is OK.

You didn't know to use 'official' Minelab TP?  And now we all realize where ML got the color for the Vanquish:

Detecting

I settled on this Nox Keypad Cover from the UK from a place called Detecting Innovations, it arrived pretty quick, a couple of weeks with free postage.

That faux CF keypad cover design is sharp looking.  Nice

Detecting Innovations also distributes a nice collapsible shaft solution for the Equinox called Tele-Knox  It is light weight and makes a great setup for taking the Nox packing into the woods, especially if you just attach the 6" coil.  Not as robust as solutions like the collapsible Golden Mask setup and I would avoid stressing it with the 12x15 coil or water loads, but a nice setup nevertheless (though I rock a Steve's Shaft and counterweight as my everyday Equinox swing setup).  Early iterations of the design suffered from some fit up issues  such as with the arm rest.  They refined the design to resolve those issues and provided updated replacement hardware to me at no charge, so I am giving them a thumbs up on customer service in addition to having some cool accessories for the Nox.20190825_204250.jpg

Mine just arrived from the UK.  Took about 10 days to Montana. 

I like it a lot!  Great recommendation Simon!

If there is one thing the UK got right it's Royal Mail, it seems a fast low cost service.  I assume you got the Nox one? they're the best ones.

      Hi everyone ... I recently updated my equinox 800 to version 3. I have gone to the beach to test it ... after trying on several beaches the detector is unstable ... beach mode 1-2 ... the screen always shows -9 (with any sensitivity) I can not remove it ... sometimes a small triangle comes out next to the battery ... these beaches where I have always detected, never any problems ... anyone knows the reason EDIT: software version 2.1, false signals continuously, sometimes with bad sound (centimes or garbage) I locate with pinpointer but without targets, unstable detector in and out of water
      some reason?
      Thank you
      regards

      Hi,
      Just wondering if anyone knows custom coil builders for the nox?
      Thanks

      When I update/upgrade to the latest version just (today) downloaded from Minelab the software says it is version 3.1.3.  Is that what everyone else has been downloading and upgrading?  The filename of the software that performs the upgrade has '3.0' in it, but when running the software it shows the 3.1.3 number.
      I ask to make sure we're all talking about the same thing when we discuss any noticed changes from previous version(s).

      I ran pk1 50 tone f2-7 and I dug over 50 bottlecaps  since  they repeated a nice sound.I could usually tell a pulltab or ring because of the softer sound but I wanted to see how the update might have changed things.It seems  the bottlecaps had a more broken sound   before even though the settings were the same.I did manage to get a 3.2  gram14k white gold band in very deep water so    at least  I was rewarded  for digging all those caps.

      I read a lot but I'm not sure I have found the answer,  are the 4 Khz in multi frequency or do they work alone?
      In the Calabash Digger video, he sees that 4 khz are better on silver than in multi,  if they were part of multi there should be no difference, but if the 4 Khz were out then it would be correct.
      What do you think?

      A little over 2 years and a lot of water hunting and the ears snapped. I’m not surprised after all I’ve heard about that problem.
      Had another breakdown a couple months ago. All 4 screws with inserts pulled out of the pod. Minelab had to review and decide whether or not to warranty it and finally said it was a one time replacement because I was using a CF rod and not original equipment. They said it was probably overtightened. I stated the inserts were corroded from salt water immersion and constant torque and pulled out. 

      Earlier on, the sleeve on the armrest broke which they also gracefully replaced. Glad it is all under warranty. So it will be like brand new again.
