Ended up going with the Vanquish. Figure I can always upgrade later, might as well start with the minimum so I can appreciate it when I spend the big $$ someday on a Nox, PI, etc. 🙂

Dealer seemed to think it would suit my purposes just fine, highly recommended it over the Simplex for our beaches since the Vanquish is multi-frequency. Will get to try it out this upcoming weekend 🤙

Congrats. Smart move. Minimize your investment until you are sure about the hobby. Once you decide to take the plunge and upgrade as you become more serious about detecting you can always use the Vaquish as a decent backup.

      I have loved my simplex, and been using it almost every day since I got it. Also finaly finding gold ( now that I know what I'm watching for. I'll post pictures eventually).
      Anyway I was thinking to myself, how could they make a second generation simplex better? I know it's a ways off, but I bet nokta has already been thinking about this. So I wanted to start a thread about features you'd like to see on the next one?
      I'll start. When night hunting, the light on the back seems to be either not quite bright enough, or it's at the wrong angle, and can't use it well to dig. No problem, I've got a headlight. 
      What if on the next one, they had a sensor that felt the detector be laid down, and switched on a brighter higher angle set of lights to illuminate your digging when in night mode?
      Also multi frequency would be killer, even if it had to be a super simple featureless dumbed down machine, at least around here.

      Adds iron volume and some other stuff. https://www.minelab.com/usa/vanquish-software-update-1
      VANQUISH 540 Iron Volume Control
      Detecting in heavy iron trash is enhanced with the new Iron Volume Control feature. 10-step adjustments let you decrease the volume of iron all the way down to a whisper, while leaving desirable targets (non-ferrous) loud and clear. To engage Iron Volume Control, simply hold down the All Metal button, while simultaneously using the Volume buttons to adjust to your liking.
      General Improvements for All VANQUISH Models
      The upgrade also includes improved battery handling capability for all models, as well as a new low battery alert.
