Just received Nox #3.
The first two were bad out of box.
The first thing I noticed about both of them, when I noise cancel, I had to press detect button 2 twice to return to detect screen at times.
This didn't happen all the time, but often.
I noise cancel and press detect 1 time and hear beep, but screen remains in noise cancel until button is pressed again.
If in NC and 1 press doesn't return to detect screen, I can NC and 1 press a few times and then the detect screen will return after a NC and 1 press.
Pulled Nox #3 out of box, connected coil, turned it on, did NC, pressed detect button, screen froze, tried again, same thing 2 or 3 times.
Turned off, turned on, same thing.
Went to video the problem and it worked like it should 4 or 5 times, before a screen freeze.
Does anybody have this issue?
Do you have to press detect button 2 times to return to detect screen?

Is there anyone that for any reason still prefers the older version 1.5.0 software over the newer 1.7.5? If so, why? Just curious.
Equinox - How To Check Version Or Rollback To Older Version
Some folks here may find this interesting, I certainly did!
Testing my equinox 800 in my home test garden today, ground not high on mineralisation, but full of iron, old rusty nails etc.
Had a silver UK sixpence 1930's buried only about 4/5 inches deep iron nails below and all around. (Difficult target)
Imagine a clock face, I'm sweeping from 12 o'clock to 6 o'clock , good 2 way tone, no problem, now sweeping from 3 o'clock to 9 o'clock, 1 way signal, one tone only sweeping from left to right (from 3 o'clock back to 9 o'clock)
Here's the interesting discovery reference ground balance, on my test garden there's so much iron getting a true GB is impossible, when I do try to auto GB it jumps up to the high 90's! However most of my permissions here in the UK read a GB in the mid 40's to the mid 50's so generally that's where I leave my GB most of the time.
Ok GB set at 50, one way target from 3 o'clock to 9 o'clock, sweeping from 3 back to 9 gives me a one way tone.
Increasing the GB to 90 gave the opposite, still a one way tone, but in reverse ,now sweeping from 9 back to 3,, still a good 2 way tone sweeping from 12 to 6!
Lowering the GB to 75, amazing, perfect 2 way tone, 3 to 9,, and 9 to 3.
Just thought I would share this as I found the results very interesting!
(GB set at 0 gave no tone whatsoever from 3 o'clock to 9 o'clock)
Program used field 2 , 50 tones, multi, discrimination -9/+1, iron bias 1, stock 11" coil, sensitivity (tried 17/21 not a great deal of difference)

I have recently been using my Equinox 800 for saltwater hunting. The obvious settings, Beach 2, Iron off. Since I am forced to a slower swing, I drop recovery speed to about 2-3 (4-5 on beach).
I am forced to drop the sensitivity to 15 or below. I have noticed the waves will cause signals and dips in the sand too. This has become frustrating as I use a CTX-3030 and do not get nearly the false signals. Any suggestions to try?
