    Nox 800 Help / Mentor

    Yeah, I could do but guess what it seems comes with days and days of rain. I have never seen it this wet here this time of year. I haven’t seen the sun since last Thursday. And when I did see the sun it was for only 2 days.

    Jim, Bury some targets like relics and coins at various depths. Play with your settings to see their effects. Vary sweep speed. You’ll start to get the picture. The chart in this link will help too.
  7. I believe this hunt is in Utah.

    How Much Are You Willing To Pay For The Orx

    And it seems X35 coils (right now anyway) don’t look to be offered with packages offered with ORX. So a person has to buy additional coil to get X35 performance.

    Nox 800 Gold Mode

    I have used gold mode for relic and coin hunting, Don’t have 15” coil though. Seems recovery can be lowered (slowed down) a bit using bigger coil vs stock. I run stock at 0 iron bias, speeds 5 and 6 depending on how littered with with ferrous. Using gold mode vs other detect modes. Gold modes you are listening for shape of signal, usiing other detect mode other than gold modes a user is listening for sound of signal. Best way I can explain distinction. When in areas where targets are sparse, gold modes best choice. Coil sweep/coil position more forgiving vs other detect modes hence gets a person to stop and investigate signals odds wise. Depth too is an advantage for using gold mode. I primarily run gold 1 mode.

    Minelab Equinox Software Update

    How about this. I had my Equinox loaded with latest version using older dated utility. I downloaded latest utility with update. When I hooked up my Nox, no update necessary. So that would tell me hopefully, update hasn’t changed.
