Some people would not upgrade their 7000 because they could not use the XChange.  I upgraded and lost my ability to use it.

I was also using it with the CTX 3030 and could see my beach finds quite easily.  Every month or so I'd update.  It was a routine when the memory was full.  I'd be out in the field and go to some of my last find points and continue to detect.  I stopped using the XChange.

Since I stopped using it I have had computer drive crashes and other events happen so now I don't even have the backups to change the file names back and forth.

The Nox doesn't care where you use it.  You just have to keep that data in your head or on your other devices.  History lost and unrecorded.

I was a bit slow to reply Fred but it is pretty simple, in the program when you run it you will see "update available" written at the top of the screen, like in the screenshot below

You just needed to click on that, it will download the installer and proceed to start installing, it will ask you to close down Xchange 2 by clicking the X at the top right on the screen before it can complete the install, then you're done..

Thanks, Phrunt

Beside not having a brain...I quickly forget any technical process that I do not use...it must have been muscle memory-haha

It is a sad and lonely world sometimes...but then everything works and I find a nuggie...

      Have a video on Audio Smoothing up on the Minelab YouTube channel for those interested.
      Hope this helps

      The Minelab GPZ 7000 audio Smoothing function was directly derived from the Stabilizer control used on the GPX series. From JP at http://www.detectorprospector.com/forum/topic/715-gold-i-found-in-victoria-with-the-gpz/?p=6424
       
      "On the subject of Audio Smoothing: Off on the GPZ = 20 on the GPX 5000, Low equals 15 and High equals 10."
       
      JP at the link referenced obviously prefers Smoothing to be left off. Some people are experimenting with higher audio smoothing settings combined with either hotter Gold Mode settings or higher Sensitivity settings or both. I think this is a good thing so do not go thinking it is "wrong". There is no right or wrong per se, it is all about what works for each prospector and their personal tolerance for noise or the lack thereof. Experimentation is good.
       
      I thought it would be informative to copy what the GPZ manual (page 66) has to say about the Stabilizer control. Warning: the GPX Stabilizer control is backwards. The highest setting if 20 is the off position. Lower numbers increase smoothing. So the GPZ at off is same as GPX at 20 (off). Note that the GPZ High setting is the same as the GPX default setting of 10. The default for the GPZ 7000 is Low Smoothing which is the equivalent of a setting of 15 on the GPX.
       
      One final note. RX Gain as referred to on the GPX is the same as the Sensitivity control on the GPX.
       
      From the GPX manual:
       
       I guess I should say that my preferences tend to follow JPs - I run with audio Smoothing off under nearly all circumstances. But I wanted to make this post to create a thread on the subject as it is very clear people are having success with other ways of thinking and again, I like out of box thinking. Lunks settings at http://www.detectorprospector.com/forum/topic/830-lunks-zed-settings/ are at the other end of the spectrum. I also liked Jason's observation on the subject at http://www.detectorprospector.com/forum/topic/827-minelab-video-gpz-7000-ground-type/?p=8276

      Hey guys, 
      I hate being the guy asking for help on the forum. But, I'm really struggling and hope some of you with more experience on the GPZ might be able to share some insight.
      So, here's the scenario. I have what I think is an old equipment pad I've been working. I've nicknamed it my "trash patch" since it is just hammered with trash, probably why it doesn't appear to have be detected much even though close by areas have been beat to death. I found my first nugget in there with my GPZ at about 8", The problem, so much trash I couldn't even keep a single target under the 14" coil. I went back this week and spent 2 1/2 days (sun up to sun down) with my GB2 cleaning about a 2500sf area of trash. I can't begin to know how many targets were removed, but I can tell you my legs are so sore from that many squats I can barely walk today. Once I got the area clean, I was super excited to get back over it with the GPZ and see what I could find.
      And, here's where we get to the help part. This entire pad has basically been built with about 3" of crushed hotrock. I thought getting the trash out was the biggest issue, but it wasn't. I can't figure out setting on the GPZ to get through the top layer. Either it just wobbles and whines all over the place, or you choke the settings down so hard it won't pick up anything. I can't find a working medium. Short of racking and shoveling 3" of rock off this area, which moves way outside the bounderies of enjoyable hobbie for me, I'm not sure what to do.
      Anyone have some detector settings I might try, or other ideas would be greatly appreciated.
      Attached are 8 little micro nuggets I pulled off the surface cleaning trash with the GB2. Everything I have got more than 2"s below the rock layer has been larger.
      Thx, Beau

      This is pretty neat stuff, and I think the applications for prospectors and relic hunters are obvious...
