    Everything that was mentioned for the coming update seems to be well thought out. Mid May time frame from what she said.

    Hopefully they're able to adhere to the mid May release time frame, I have a week long detecting road trip in the works for the end of May, would be great to check out the new firmware then.

    ... If ML doesn't respond, looks like NM and XP have collectively stolen the new detector thunder buzz from ML and everyone else for 2022.


    That is until ML announces the Equinox Pro/1000 at Detectival this fall, then the chaos starts all over again 🤠

    I believe that because the threshold discriminator is software based then it wouldn't behave the same as an analog. I heard it wasn't a depth demon but for most conditions that is not an issue.

    I need all the depth I can get, along with the superior iron handing for relic sites.  The F5 isn't for these sites, but Mike seemed to get along with it pretty well for turf and jewelry hunting.

    When you use the threshold discriminator do you still see the numbers? Majority of VDI machines the discriminator only turns off the audio but don't actually filter out the targets.

    I believe you do.  I had a F5 for a hot minute.  I liked the setup, the analog user input into a digital machine.  it was a solid machine, but in my dirt it wasn't a depth demon.  Like JCR said, the Mike Hillis posts on the F5 will speed up the learning process on the F5, he was pretty fond of it.

    Sometimes that site makes me want to join, but fixed income dictates restraint. 😀

    It's not worth the $.  They scrape ebay auction results, and the information is only as accurate as the seller (GIGO issue), but you can get some ideas, especially on sold values if you can find the same things.

  6. Inline pinpointer as discussed on another Legend thread here.

    A closed loop elliptical DD coil.

    One thing that Minelad did was make an updater that was also supposed to be able to be used to create your custom programs as well.  A bug free, more USB friendly updater/program customization application would be terrific!

    1st day out to the beach with the legend. 


    • Beach
    • Multi - wet
    • Ground Tracking ground balance
    • Stability 1 up to 5 - I tried a few 
    • Sensitivity - 20 to 25
    • Noise Cancel 
    • Recovery speed - varied - I tried a few
    • 1-10 notched out 

    The main issue I'm having is that I get misc non-repeatable chirps that show an ID on the screen. Actual targets are more of a good tone. The VDI for the chirps ranges from the 20s to the 40s.

    I need a lot more work with the unit.  I think eventually I'll realize those chirps are just chatter.  I don't want to turn the sensitivity down too much and miss targets. 

    Anyone else getting misc. chirps in the "good" target range?


    What was your audio setup?  Tone breaks?

    Well Brian I'm sure you would take right to it...you have a keen ear I've hunted with you before...you would have no trouble plucking out nuggets from mother earth... If you liked it then you would want to buy a good PI to complement the Nox. When people ask me about metal detecting I always tell them that gold (nuggets) is the hardest thing to find due to the small size of most of them...it's a different deal then looking for coins jewelry and relics. It can be very frustrating due to the gold to trash ratio. And then theres the the real problem at least for me  is that I'm just a detectorist... I'm not a prospector. It's a long road to understand the geology of an area and  types of rocks where you may find or not find gold...plus being able to understand your surroundings what the old timers were doing in a particular area. For me it's all very confusing at times and thats when I want to go back to coin and relic hunting lol 


    It's definitely an entirely different ballgame for sure.   I've heard folks say that detecting for natural gold is the most difficult sector of metal detecting, and it's common to get skunked.  Still, odds stacked against me, it would still be worth the experience to give it a try one of these days.   Not sure I need a PI though haha  Maybe when they finally make a discriminating PI I'll get one and I can use it for gold and relics 🙂
