  1. Good for you on getting one, is there a manual in the box?
  2. Getting started video....https://youtu.be/pckWOwS1Tpg
  3. Testers short video... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m67JE_CZFNA
  4. I used the ML80 headphones maybe twice with my Equinox. The sound quality in my opinion was lacking. I use the WM08 99.% of the time. I have been unable to find any Bluetooth LE transmitter-receivers or BLE wireless earbuds on the market so far. I am hoping that by springtime some affordable BLE products will hit the market. I live in Central Texas, by spring it gets way too hot for over the year headphones.
  5. I'm thinking I'm gonna have in invest in a Garrett Z-Link, Minelab Pro-Sonic or a Detecnicks wireless set-up. I use earbuds almost 99% of the time these days, it would have been nice to have a factory wireless module, boo on Minelab.
  6. Tom D. posted this last night..... "A little more data that I can share: None of the bluetooth/wireless stuff from EQX will work on the Manticore. This sounds terrible/disappointing ........ BUT: The new next-Gen bluetooth/wireless system on Manticore presents: 1. Even lower latency. 2. Even lower EMI. 3. Better audible clarity. This could not be achieved with the EQX bluetooth system."
  7. I use some Panasonic earbuds that have held up for 3 years now. I bought them on Amazoon for 8-9 bucks. here's a link.....https://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-Headphones-RP-HJE120-K-Ergonomic-Comfort-Fit/dp/B003EM8008/ref=sr_1_3?crid=52D0IMZ1B23L&keywords=panasonic+ear+buds+earbuds+wired&qid=1665874493&qu=eyJxc2MiOiIyLjA3IiwicXNhIjoiMi4xNyIsInFzcCI6IjIuMTAifQ%3D%3D&sprefix=panasonic+ear+%2Caps%2C376&sr=8-3
  8. Here's another video featuring Mark Lawrie... A little bit of Q&A. .....
  9. There's no fixing to it, they will replace the control pod with a new one. From what I've read, they are out of 800 pods right now with no ETA available. I'd take the pod off the handle and get it ready to ship to the repair center on PA. I'd be calling Minelab customer service until I got hold of someone that will give you a RA# I went thru this process 4 times in the last 4.5 years. The reason I said to ship only the pod is to save on shipping which you'll have to pay. On the plus side, since it's still under warranty, it'll be a free replacement. Good luck and really sorry to hear what happened.
  10. It looks like the part of 50% must be in the transmit power according to a statement Tom made. ....... "IF you could figure out a way to wire a EQX coil to the new Manticore...... the Manticore would blow/burn it out. Soooo...... coils are NOT interchangeable. (There's also other reasons for incompatibility). The coil has tighter tolerances....and more stuff in it; hence, soooo........it must be built heavier-duty. The extra 2 heli-arc'd fore-aft curved ribs are not very hydrodynamic; yet, are a necessity."
