So Dilek, Whatever Happened With The Multi Naming Contest?


Recommended Posts

Hello all.... 

YES the name has been picked but will not be shared prior to the launch of the product. As Carolina mentioned, announcing the name would give the impression that the product is ready to be released. 

And Steve is right, the SMF will come in the Simplex housing with small changes in the design. 

It will NOT be compatible with any of the current coils and/or HPs as it is a different machine both hardware/software wise.

Hope this helps...

PS: I know the next question - when? This year ... but cannot confirm a date.

Take care all!!

Thank you for confirming.  

From an upgrade and loyalty perspective I think it would have been nice if it was at least compatible with the Simplex green headphones and the waterproof wired option. I understand on the coils there might be technical reasons for those to be different.

Can you say if it will be compatible with the Pulsedive pinpointer as far as audio through headphones and interference?

I know some of you prefer the proprietary systems as having less lag, but personally I would like all detectors to be aptX Low Latency compatible so one set of headphones works on all detectors. Not to mention every other device I may own. That’s the whole point of having standards. For me aptX LL has reached “good enough” status, and I am certain it will only get better. If there must be a proprietary solution, it should be included along with aptX LL as an option, but not replace it.

Proprietary solutions are short term fixes that are doomed to die out, which is why I do not like investing in them. Minelab has a different proprietary solution for every new machine that is not compatible with their prior version, and it gets annoying if you have lots of detectors to have six different wireless systems, none compatible with the other.

But main thing.... a new multi frequency detector coming in I assume late 2021, great news!

Steve, I would agree on the headphones if it goes to something else, then let it be an industry standard and not yet another proprietary solution.  I chose to go with the August headphones on my Equinox 600 and also bought their transmitter for my other detectors without built in feature. It would be great if I could use these with the Simplex as well without the transmitter. Or maybe if I can on its replacement I might be more convinced to try one. 
 

I guess if they are going to keep going down the proprietary route and releasing a nearly identical detector that is an upgrade to tons of folks that have already bought into the Simplex, why not make the value proposition be better to upgrade by allowing the peripherals from the Simplex carry over?  Or is the better business case for NoktaMakro to get users to buy yet more accessories?  One approach seems better from a loyalty perspective. I think Garrett has done it right from that point of view. And they still sell accessories.

Definitely hear what you are saying and was just adding my thoughts. I am in the same boat with you exactly with a Simplex and a pulsedive. This is already the second proprietary system from Makro, the blue phones and the green phones. Keep in mind when the go multi, the current system may interfere, so we get the red headphones. That’s kind of the problem with proprietary systems, they rarely last long. The other nice thing about standards - choice. It would take all day to shop aptX LL options for headphones, everything you can imagine. Proprietary, what you get is it. And what if the fit is bad? Oh well.

I already have enough headphones, I cant tell you how many times i grabbed the wrong ones, only to find out when I got to my permission. I do have to agree that most factory units really do not fit your noggin, But Steve I do like the color red Ha Ha. The good news is, we can now color code to our machines.

      A "new", easier to operate, gold probability scale 61 kHz nugget prospecting detector using the Anfibio platform from Nokta Makro. I did not see this coming......

      So, I really like the Makro Gold Racer. I keep finding more things about it. Recently, I found a really tiny 14k gold chain visually, just lying on the ground.  I had my compadre and it couldnt pick it up. I took the chain home and tried it on my GR. I had the factory settings, 10 on disc, using Disc 2 the deeper one, and tone break at 30. Nothing, I couldn't get it to detect it.
      So, while I was waving this chain in front of the 10" DD coil I started lowering the disc, I realized the ID number was about 3. So, I experimented with going one number at a time all the way to 0. At 1 I could get a somewhat clear signal. At zero it was a nice signal. Even the big coil coild pick it up at about an inch.
      I have been trying to find micro jewelery with no luck. Maybe this is why. I have not used the disc mode in all metal. You see, I really like the clear signal the disc modes give. I have a hard time "reading" the all metal mode. I can really hear the signals in the disc modes. Why is the all metal mode so hard to understand? So very faint target sounds compared to the really obvious ones in disc.
      So, am I searching in all metal when disc is at 0? It sure seems as deep and sensitive as all metal. I get much more audible info than all metal in my opinion. However, I have to state here, I'm not an expert. I know the all metal has a way of indicating a target with thresh hold sounds too, or, the silence of the thresh hold sometimes on tiny targets. But, it's not as easy as this method. I really could hear this tiny chain this way.
      Can I hunt just as effectively like this or should I keep trying to learn the all metal mode? What's your opinions? And, please, lets keep this discussion to the Gold racer and those who have one. 
      I'm actually really glad to have discovered this. I'm fortunate to have this chain to test.

      The ground is mild. 
      I buried a 14k gold ring 3.77 grams at 15", 14" then 13".
      Equinox 800 w/ 11" coil got a nice hit at 14" with coil raised 2". Neither would hit it at 15". Used multi tone Park 2 & Gold 1. Equinox would hit the ring in the single frequencies also. 40 khz was nice. Settings. sensitivity 24, 2 tone, recovery 4, iron bias f2 0.
      Anfibio Multi w/ Mars Discovery 13" would hit the ring at 13". 14" no hit. Setting, 20 khz, Sensitivity 92, Deep mode, 4 tone and 2 tone. Disc 6, tone break 0, isat 0.
      Anfibio w/ Nel Superfly 11x12 would barely hit the 13" ring. 14" no hit.
      I was surprised the Anfibio didn't go as deep as the Equinox on the gold ring.
      So with my test the Equinox is the best gold jewelry hunter over the Anfibio for my lakes by 1"+. Not a great difference.
      I will be hunting this summer in the lakes with the Equinox and the Anfibio will be my backup.
      I would like to know how the Tarsacci would do in this test with both coils. Would it be able to hit a gold ring similar size as the one I used in mild sand at 14"? I hope someone does this test and lets me know.
      A gold ring at 14" in a sandy beach is a tough test for any detector. For the Equinox to pass this test is impressive.

      Will Nokta get a pi detector this year? The first news I had that nokta would release a new pi detector was on this forum 2 years ago? This week I saw a similar story on a Russian website. Is there any new news that that will happen this year? I am interested in buying from Whites TDI sl after having sold mine 3 years ago so I don't know whether to wait, maybe several years or buy a TDI.

      Curious if it handles the salt at all being such a high frequency.
