The 6000 does what the 5000 can do depth wise on larger gold even slightly better, but what’s the point of providing it that way to the market when there is already something much better out there for

Minelab is basically just trying to create their own social media. That's what "detexperts" are, and that's why they are choosing their own no-name relic hunting channels to give exclusive looks into

I think these pictures sum up the GPX 6000 very concisely and also how I feel about those people who continue to suggest my input is biased or just marketing hype!! Tiny piece at stupid depth for

Aahhh goddamn I wish I had the money spare, I’d have one in my hands ASAP.

Unfortunately the guy in the Minelab videos looks like Russell Coights All Aussie Adventures which puts me off the videos a bit. All Aussie Adventures is a comedy show about Russell who believes he is a real Aussie with an intimate knowledge of the bush but in reality knows bugger all and gets himself and the people he is trying to impress with his bush skills into all sorts of predicaments. I think I will stick to the manual.

If it wasn't for the guy in the video, the 6000 wouldn't be released, and would probably be someone's imagination only. If it was Russell Coight, the coil would be backwards, the display would be smashed, and he would have driven over the control box 🤣

Really?  Who is the guy?  Minelab engineer? 

I thought he looked more like Chuck Norris than Russel Coight   🤔 😉

Maybe more the mannerisms and style of photography rather than straight out looks. Finding the big nugget is straight from All Aussie Adventures but then he would have some sort of stupid misadventure which would negate all the good work. Anyway I digress - I think it would be much better to have one large clip rather than 13. If you cut the theatrical nonsense it would be half the time to view as well and half the cost to produce.

Get a little 150 watt inverter that plugs into a cigarette lighter and take your 240 volt charger with you.  

@hermann Good and easy idea above, but also a more convenient and useful solution for you is to run a accessory power cord from your battery up to where you can reach it- a lot of cigarette lighter plugs have a low amp rating and cant handle radios and lithium battery chargers are not a good idea for them as the outlet turns off on some when you turn off the ignition.  You’ll have a high amp accessory plug that way that you can use for an emergency radio, a higher wattage inverter and other accessories, plus a cord to charge your battery from a solar panel.  Blue Seas and other marine suppliers sell waterproof in-line cigarette lighter female and male plugs with caps and twist locks, or you can use other types of waterproof power plugs for the end of that cord and your 12v detector charging cord.  Also be sure to put a fuse or low amp 12v waterproof circuit breaker (also available through marine suppliers) between the +battery terminal and the + end of that cord.

Just shows that you cant please everyone all the time.

The videos were short and to the point. Most only being one minute or so in length.

If some one has a problem with one aspect of the machine then there's a short video that covers the problem. No need to try looking for the section that covers your problem in a lengthy video.

Anyhow, the videos wont please everyone but I'm sure they will help many

      Get a GPX 6000 to use on your old patches before someone else does!  You will be glad you did.

      I was on the team, as were Nenad and JP. Any others here? In any case, if you have specific questions about the GPX 6000, ask away, and get straight answers. If it violates our NDA expect to be told so. In general, Minelab simply does not want how they make the sausage advertised to one and all. So don’t ask about how the sausage got made, or why it tastes like it does. That part is done, and we can’t talk about it anyway. Is the machine perfect? No. But I’ll tell you what, it’s a sweetie for sure. I smell a detector classic, simple, to the point, powerful, gets the job done. That being the case, everyone who took part in it is pretty proud of the final effort. My part was modest, I’m sure, but I for one will be bragging about it for as long as I’m around. Congratulations to Minelab and the entire team. My special thanks to Eng and Simon. 👍🏼
      So any questions about the best little detector ever (just go with it)?  Yes, I do think that if a person can afford it, then this machine is the machine to have right now for the U.S. If you are like me, you can ditch everything else, use the GPX 6000 exclusively, and be a nugget slayer. Add a Gold Monster or Equinox 800 with discrimination for nugget detecting perfection.
