Out with the Minelab Equinox yesterday and getting frustrated with the difficulty of switching to the user 'profile' (plenty of complaints on that since its release) but then wondering why we have only one memory slot.  Sure, many detectors have zero....

Are there detectors on the market (or even from the past -- no longer manufacturered) that have more than one user memory slot?  It's hard to believe in 2020 with gigabytes of memory in so many small packages/products that we can't have 2 or (am I asking for too much?) 4 places to put user custom set search modes.

    This, and several other issues, are why i wasn't too broken up about trading it away! Don't get me wrong, it's one of the best detectors out there! But i really think that Minelab need's to be more responsive to things that overwhelming amounts of owners are asking for!

     If you don't learn from other company's failures, than you are doomed to repeat them!👍👍

The White's DFX and V3i have about 5 user slots, The XP ORX has 2 slots, and the winner is: (Drum roll) Deus has 10 factory programs with and additional 8 user slots for a total of 18 Programs.

That's what I get for relying on my memory. Thanks for setting the record straight.

My Tejon has no user slots but only one user, does that count? 🙂

I wish you could just put a thumb drive on the control box and pick the saves you had and back up ones you create. Then your not really restricted at all, even be able to share settings with others with the same detector.

The Kruzer and Racer only have save all for current setups and a factory reset. Not a big deal on the gold racer as it is super simple to use but the Kruzer has enough settings that can make it a pain to restore if needed.

      So for you experts on EMI interference.  Does EMI effect the powerhead?, coil? or both????   Thanks.

      Is there now marketed or has there ever been available a detector which inverts the audio volume scale?  Many applications produce better finds from the weaker signals, either because those items are smaller (e.g. micro jewelry) or deeper (e.g. old coins and nuggets).  Having to listen through the din of trash to hear the weak signals for most detectors is mentally fatiguing.  I wouldn't be surprised if this is/was possible with analog electronics, but seems like a task that digital processing could handle easily(?).

      I posted this in the vanquish thread but it’s buried fairly deep so I’m asking here too, about the vanquish, it’s multi iq technology rooted in VLF technology or is it something different all together? I was under the impression this is a multi frequency VLF detector that basically samples multiple VLF  frequencies simultaneously to better I D targets and while the way it makes this possible is unique the signal would have the same limitation in heavily mineralized soil same as any VLF detector?

      Winter will be  starting to set in soon, and cabin fever will soon be running rampant ,  time to think about the next dream machine from Minelab.
      What improvements would you like to see over the Nox 800?  Preformance is always a biggie.
      More depth, more Stable ID at that depth.  
      Wider numerical ID system, 0-100.   
      Better selection of optional size coils.
      Or, maybe an etrac or explorer features in the nox liteweight  style? 
      Adjustable handgrip  pod.
      EMI  elimination system.
      If you request it, maybe they will build it. 😁

      How many guys would like JUST A BLING BEEPA. Designed completely for recovering jewellery. Having a lower range and medium so you can just get bling with a bit of rubbish included.
      Come on their from  Nokta Makro you guys can do it.

      Hello everyone,
      I am new here to this forum.
      Recently my home town at my home country,  prospectors started to discover Gold nuggets in large sizes at the surface without digging it, see the attached email
      The creek and valleys are so large that you can not cover by using a  handheld detectors. I did some search and came across two other types.
      One is using a drone metal detector although the product is not out yet https://www.treasurehunter3d.com/dronerover and the other is long distance detectors upto 2km and 30 meters deep http://www.megalocators.com/en/  or http://www.imagelocators.com/index.php/component/virtuemart/long-range-locators/x-finder-gold-detector-long-range-locator-detail?Itemid=0  video is 
      I couldn't find review on the performance on the long range detectors, did any of you use it? or whether these are legit products that work?
      Thank you
