Orx Tone Break?

Noah,

Like you I am a little confused by the manual info.   I have not found any coins with mine just yet. I have only been relic hunting so far.

Let us know if coins in the wild read differently from air test results.

Probably won’t vary much in ground unless a coin were next to a nail or other lower conductor.   

The zinc cent giving a high tone is the deal breaker for me.  Wouldn’t matter for old site/woods relic hunting but for school yard/parks it makea the screen/VDI necessary to wed out zincs.  Same reason I don’t have a CZ. 

Guess I’ll stick with my current tools unless I go full Deus for the tone hunting versatility or maybe give the Equinox a go???

Till then I’ll keep on Kruzin’.

Tones are preset. Your coin will be a high tone. You can only adjust disc. and turn on and off iron tone.

Noah,

the sites that I hunt have very few if any modern coins so it isn't much of an issue for me.  I suspect that the Deus would be a better choice for you.

      took the ORX to cut nail hill , and if it didnt suprize me . it found a Old rimfire shell casing amongst the iron that the Equinox missed with the 6" coil  i was using coin deep and got a nice mid tone amognst the iron and the shell came up so it really has proved itself , and i dont even know how to use it yet . the build quality is very good , yes its light ,  it could not get my 10" deep dime  in any frequincy but it handled the 8" dime with a diggable signal  no VDI the 6" dime got VDI, my dirt has some iron in it  but i think i have alot to learn , but it really does do good in the nails , Kinda like it

      I stopped for a bit of detecting after work and set up my Orx which I have in a backpack. I have 2 Orx set-ups which means two WSAudio headphones and two Mi6  pinpointers, and I had the PP paired to the other Orx so I had to remove the Mi6 currently paired to the remote and pair the one I had on me. So having done that I turned the pp on to locate a target. At this time the remote went to the   
      pinpointer screen and then started just beeping strangely and not working. I turned off the pinpointer but the remote stayed on the pinpointer screen beeping. I tried turning off the remote power but it would not power down - it said
                                 Turn Off   Turn Off 
      but holding the power button would not turn it off but It would just Go back to the pinpoint screen. Nothing was working to turn it off and stop the beeping but eventually pressing the top right arrow button got it out of pinpoint mode and I was then able to power down. When I turned it back on everything was back to normal and I was able to detect.    Anyone’s guess as to what the problem was, but if it happens again I’m going to contact XP service center
      ( does anyone have the phone and email for them in case I need to contact them?). 
       Has any Orx or Deus user had a similar thing happen?  
       Glad I have 2 machines in case one goes out for service  
       
            Enjoy the Independence Day weekend  HH

      I went hunting this evening with a friend who was using his Equinox while I was trying out the orx. Yikes!! The orx doesn't like being near the Equinox at all. Is there something I can do besides turn my sensitivity down. That seemed to work but I was hoping there was another option. Thanks!

      I did a little trading and have an orx coming with the x35 coil. I picked this up to partner with the Equinox 800.
