Curious if the Legend is compatible with the Pulse Dive pointer and maybe the Green headphones. Anyone know?
Had a search of the forum and although there are a few mentions of the 14" DD in various thread content I couldn't find a specific thread for discussion around it.
Did a video a few days ago getting a few small pieces of gold and small rubbish at a location I've found lots of small gold in a small area.
I know that I like watching videos and many of us often encourage others to do a video of this or that. I figure that rather than asking everyone else to do it I should probably do some of the hard yards myself! This is certainly not an advertisement of a Youtube channel and I have no illusions that my production quality or information provided is any better than fairly average 🤣
Something for you Northern Hemisphere folk to watch during the cold months.
Happy for anyone to add to the discussion, link a video, show some DD finds or provide some tips on the thread.
The thing I found interesting about this was that the target shown at 3.55 mins was quite bright in Normal ground mode. It ended up being no target at all and just a small pocket of really wet clay. The fact that it brightened up with the DD surprises me. The fact that it then brightened up quite a bit more in Normal maybe should have alerted me to the fact that it was ground noise and not a genuine target as the difference in signal on small pieces of gold swapping between Difficult and Normal has been quite small.

The new Minelab 17" Elliptical Searchcoils for the Minelab GPX 6000 have been flying off the shelves, definitely high demand. Due to the high demand, I haven't had much time to use one, everyone ends of taking mine ... LOL
I haven't seen much larger gold being found at depth yet, but I'm sure it is. Curious how people and past customers are doing with this new 17" Searchcoil beyond covering more ground quicker?
We still have a few left in stock from the last large shipment and more on the way if anyone is still searching for a new "Christmas present.!" Hahaha
Would love to see some pictures or at least hear about any success with the new searchcoil.
Wishing you all much success on the goldfield.

Seeing how this topic has numerous mentions across the internet, what are the range of faults exhibited? My nearest dealer is over an hour from me so I don't want to travel back and forth after picking mine up if I get a faulty one. So I know what to look for after collection and field test.
My first 6000 was faulty out of the box which they replaced with a new one. I've had the new one for 21 days and probably used it 8 days before it went bad. When i was boxing it up to ship back i heard something rattling inside of it, not good. In researching i found that they've known them to have major issues since March or April, yet they have refused to address the issue with a production stop or at least look at the different production runs and recall those units. I think when it's all said and done there will be a substantial number of them that are faulty worldwide. As it stands now, Detector Center states that there is a" temporary" 10- 14 day time frame for repairing them. My bet is that it's not going to be temporary. If this failure rate continues there may be grounds for a worldwide class action lawsuit, who knows. Oh, and i owned a business for 40 years. Not a very smart way to run a business. JMO.
I was experimenting with Dan(MN)'s mod of mounting the WM-08 to a pair of good quality wired headphones, which works really well. I read the Equinox manual section about the WM 08 and saw that its latency is only 17ms whereas Low Latency Bluetooth is 40ms and normal Bluetooth is up to 100ms.
I have been using LL Bluetooth ear buds all Summer and Fall so I'm used to the way they respond, but when I tested my new WM 08 rig, I couldn't really tell any difference in response time/latency. I guess I was expecting there to be a noticible difference.
So my questions are, for those who use the WM 08 module, can you tell a difference as opposed to Bluetooth? Do you prefer to use the WM 08 setup and why?
