New Minelab Video Clearly Targeting The Apex


Recommended Posts

They couldn't be more clear this is about the Apex and Garrett 🙂

Wow..... Iooked  a lot like a garrett at series I know that!!

 

At least they showed the little guy pulling out his pocket size manual. At least mine lab recognized that garrett does include a manual!!!!😋 I wish they would too

I just got that from Minelab in my email.  The battles are heating up.

Another thing I have noticed about minelab here lately is they seem to be really pushing the multi iq thing.

What about their top dog units?? Do they have something up their sleeve because, all of the hype from the company here lately is about the low to mid priced multi iq stuff. 

Or maybe they took a little advice from Garrett and decided to take advantage of the lower priced new units so they will sell more units instead of the higher priced flagships they are more known for.

Maybe there is going to be a new unit that is priced upwards or more along the explorer series style that will be multi iq or a variant of it. 

And speaking if multi iq stuff I saw last night in this paper about the FCC from.minelab in my equinox stuff a thing about frequencies on the vanquish and also the other units. Here is it if you wanna take a look

We can update that chart for the Equinox now. It should say 4 to 143 kHz.

They were very rude and didn't put a dot on the map where JW and I live, we probably have 5% of the Minelab detectors in the country between us 🙂 so I took the liberty of adding a gold dot where we are.

Don't slip up again Minelab, I expect better from you.  At least you put us up near the top of the world.  It gets a bit old always being down the bottom.

Isn't there a plateau on frequency and usability? Can't imagine why anyone would need 143khz. Get to the point you start picking up trashy talk radio 😬

So with all these engineers farfing around when is ML coming out with a descent pinpointer? My 3rd one is starting to fail again and is only 8 months old. Time to buy a carrot?

I don't think they care about pin pointers, that's the impression I get, maybe they'll task the apprentice/trainee with it at some point.  I wish they'd do a propsecting pin pointer that picks up tiny gold, seeing they're the main gold prospecting detector manufacturer it seems like something they should be doing.  Then I wouldn't need to use my Mini Monster.

I am currently looking forward to the next Multi-IQ detector release, I'm hoping it's one of the 5 new products.

I agree, a pp that can pick up the tiny stuff at a distance would be nice. Current PP they have are borderline trash.

      I saw one of these for sale for basically $200 + shipping. Is that a good deal? What's the typical resale price (Fair Market Value) for a machine like that?
       
      Thanks!

      "The proper threshold on hot ground, any ground type for that matter, is a nice and high full sound, stable and rock solid threshold that cannot be wavered on that ground type.. Allowing the highest sensitivity they can muster. 
      Causing lovely repeatable dropouts in the threshold on deep signals on heavy ground."
      Hello All.
      I have an old Minelab GT16000, and in the process of searching for Coils, came across a post(above) by "argyle" that suggested a completely different Threshold setup for some of the early VLF detectors including mine.
      Just wondering if anyone has used this procedure, as it is different to the manufacturer's instruction?
      Cheers.

      One year ago My husband and I decided to try our hand at metal detecting.We were total newbies with a steep learning curve. We purchased a used Xterra 705 for our starting machine. We downloaded and printed Randy Horton’s Xterra guide and have read it many times.  It is a valuable tool for any Xterra owner. We spent the last year educating ourselves on the basics of metal detecting and getting to know our machine. 
      We are feeling pretty confident about the Xterra except for one issue.  I am looking for advice on any errors we are committing or if we possibly have something wrong with our detector.  We have contacted minelab, but they never got back to us about our issue.  So here goes...
      We are having an issue with TID numbers with in ground silver. We have several old silver coins we use for testing.  They air test  perfectly per published Xterra TID charts. When we place a coin (dime, quarter or half dollar, doesn’t matter) in a dug plug and cover, the coins register as ferrous (-8, -6 or -4) every time regardless of the coil we have installed.  We have the stock 9” 7.5 kHz and the 6” 18.75 kHz Double D coils.  We cannot get silver to register as anything but ferrous in the ground.  The depth does not matter.  
      We usually run in all metal or discrim 1 on occasion.  We go through a set up each time we arrive at a place to detect that includes noise canceling, threshold, sensitivity and manual ground balance, although we usually detect in auto ground balance. We use 99 tones and silver in the ground has a ferrous “thunking” sound to go along with the TID numbers.
      We have reset to factory setting several times in the hope of solving this issue to no avail.  We are out of ideas and possibly need service.  Thank you for reading this far.  Any advice or suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

      I am now the proud owner of both the Equinox 800 and 600 and I no longer have any use for my E-Trac, My E-Trac is 2 yrs old and has no extra accessories. I do have a cheap harness I bought for it but found it to be more trouble than it was worth. Does anyone know what a used E-Trac is worth.

      Which do you consider the best of the two and why?
       
      Thanks  Bill
