I know exactly when it's coming out. Less than a week after my next detector purchase!

I guess they can't call it the Apex now.

Australia doesn't have Ostriches 🙂 There are Emus which are similar.  There are also cassowary's that are a bit like Ostriches which like most Australia wildlife wants to kill you.  They're known as t

I was wondering if we in the USA would get a shot at entering the contest naming the new detector coming out in 2019.

Dilek if you could just send it to me I think I’d get a better feel on giving it a name.

I do thank you for giving us the same opportunity as others to give it a name and maybe win one too.

No I thank you for showing the interest! Let's just hope that it is developed and done the way the majority of us would want it to be! the rest is easy...

  • Steve Herschbach changed the title to Naming Contest For New Multifrequency Detector

Now that Nokta/Makro have caught up or surpassed most everyone when it comes to single frequency and selectable frequency it will be exciting to see what appears for a true simultaneous multifrequency detector. And hopefully a pulse induction model one of these days!

The MK is my first experience with any of your products and I am  300% loving its abilities.  I am convinced that whatever your engineers and techs come up with for the simultaneous multi freak detector will be a success.  

That being said, my MK keeps me too busy digging goodies to think about a new detector for many more years hopefully! 

Cant wait to see what the future holds!!! Thanks for making great products 

EDIT......the only thing I would change on MK or add to future models would be to have the backlight be Red. I do some night hunting when it’s hot in the summer and the stock back light really hampers nighttime vision. I usualyy keep a red lighting gel over the screen at night.

Melquíades

(One hundred years of solitude)

 

"Many years later, as he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendía was to remember that distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice. At that time Macondo was a village of twenty adobe houses, built on the bank of a river of clear water that ran along a bed of polished stones, which were white and enormous, like prehistoric eggs. The world was so recent that many things lacked names, and in order to indicate them it was necessary to point. Every year during the month of March a family of ragged gypsies would set up their tents near the village, and with a great uproar of pipes and kettledrums they would display new inventions. First they brought the magnet. A heavy gypsy with an untamed beard and sparrow hands, who introduced himself as Melquíades, put on a bold public demonstration of what he himself called the eighth wonder of the learned alchemists of Macedonia. He went from house to house dragging two metal ingots and everybody was amazed to see pots, pans, tongs and braziers tumble down from their places and beams creak from the desperation of nails and screws trying to emerge, and even objects that had been lost for a long time appeared from where they had been searched for most and went dragging along in turbulent confusion behind Melquíades’ magical irons. ‘Things have a life of their own,’ the gypsy proclaimed with a harsh accent. ‘It’s simply a matter of waking up their souls.’ José Arcadio Buendía, whose unbridled imagination always went beyond the genius of nature and even beyond miracles and magic, thought that it would be possible to make use of that useless invention to extract gold from the bowels of the earth. Melquíades, who was an honest man, warned him: ‘It won’t work for that.’ But José Arcadio Buendía at that time did not believe in the honesty of gypsies, so he traded his mule and a pair of goats for the two magnetized ingots. Úrsula Iguarán, his wife, who relied on those animals to increase their poor domestic holdings, was unable to dissuade him. ‘Very soon we’ll have gold enough and more to pave the floors of the house,’ her husband replied. For several months he worked hard to demonstrate the truth of his idea. He explored every inch of the region, even the riverbed, dragging the two iron ingots along and reciting Melquíades’ incantation aloud. The only thing he succeeded in doing was to unearth a suit of fifteenth-century armour which had all of its pieces soldered together with rust and inside of which there was the hollow resonance of an enormous stone-filled gourd. When José Arcadio Buendía and the four men of his expedition managed to take the armour apart, they found inside a calcified skeleton with a copper locket containing a woman’s hair around its neck.

      Metal detector sales up 30% (Recreational 11%, Gold Prospecting 42%) -

      Africa is the largest market by far (due to gold prospecting detectors) -

      New gold prospecting model coming GPX 6000 -

      X-Terra and Safari discontinued -

       
      Thirty million invested in Engineering / R&D. No wonder the competition can't keep up! I found it interesting that even with the new Vanquish and Equinox, sales growth is heavily weighted to the gold prospecting models, illustrating the relative size of the markets. The big money is in gold prospecting detectors, as further evidenced by sales in Africa in particular. And although a new GPX model is specifically indicated, there is no such hint about a new coin detector release soon.
      FY21 OUTLOOK
      Well positioned for FY21:
      • Strong start to the year and in line with FY20
      • Demand for our metal detection products remains strong
      • Minelab will benefit from a full year of Vanquish® sales and the release of a new gold detector
      • Current travel restrictions may impact Tactical Communications business development
      • Minetec is expected to return to profitability
      • Strong balance sheet allows us to explore strategic opportunities

      Outside of other risks, if a person purchased an unopened, never registered Minelab detector from a unauthorized dealer/party, say a pawn shop.  Would Minelab cover warranty service without a receipt from an authorized dealer?

      Come to find that forum member Mike Haer has a weekly podcast each Monday that I have been generally oblivious to though I think I linked to it in the past on a given subject. Anyway, Mike had another new forum member, George Kinsey, on last week and the forum was mentioned. Many hours of listening available there from past shows so check it out. And thanks for the mention guys!!

      Does anybody here readily know how to check exactly how much longer your warranty is good for right off hand? I registered my minelab and didn’t get a confirmation so was wondering if anybody could point me in the right direction.
