    Most worthless review I think I've ever seen. What's with the comment about the charging cords??!! LOL!

    Minelab Equinox Update Released

    Updated both my 600 (For sale) and 800 today without any issues whatsoever using Mac OSX. Fast and painless. It provides a warm, fuzzy feeling to know that as Minelab continues to improve the system and add features, that updating will be this easy! Awesome company for sure!

    How To Rollback Equinox To Previous Software

    LOL! I remember when tens of thousands of folks went back to Windows 3.11 after the dismal failure of Windows 95! I stuck with Windows grudgingly until they forced Vista on us. Convinced me to try Mac OS, and I've never looked back! 😁
  7. Haven't been around for awhile. Busy being a trophy "wife" for my senior commander spouse! That aside, and after many weeks of oppressive heat and humidity here in Oklahoma, the weather has FINALLY moderated, and we don't have to worry about heat exhaustion and melting while outside! So it's getting right on time to attack the ground for her hidden treasures! Have a pretty good plan for initial areas I will be attacking, and more as high grass dies down after the summer. Gotta get ahold of Steve G soon to joint hunt some areas we have previously discussed on Tinker AFB. Loving my 800, and decided to put my 600 up for sale after making a decision NOT to keep both. (It's listed in the For SALE forum here). Also extremely pleased that Minelab is being so proactive about updating a virtually new detector. WOW! Great company!! Cheers!
  8. Selling my very lightly used Equinox 600 in exceptional condition. Bought and used to learn the EQ system while awaiting my Equinox 800. I had planned on keeping both, but find that I really don't need both and would rather put some $$ away for an intended GoldMaster 1000 purchase later this year. All original items, including box included. The detector has none of the problems that have been experienced by other owners (eg. Shaft wobble) Has less than 20 hours use. The detector has been updated to Ver1.75 Firmware. $525 including shipping to lower 48. PayPal friends and family or add 3% for PayPal CC charges. Will ship next day after payment.

    Minelab Equinox Update Released

    The download links do not work in Safari. Had to use Firefox to download. ????
  10. Would love for someone with the expertise to post a tutorial on using the data with Google Earth! Lots of potential for this tech in Oklahoma, where the land rush happened in the 1800’s. Probably many homesites that disappeared, and only known ghost towns have been explored. Much more as yet not found!

    Equinox 6" Coil

    I’m first on the list with my dealer, so I should get. Word the moment it,and ANY Nox accessories come to market!
  12. Where is there information on LIDAR, and how to use it?
  13. Minelab Pro-Find 35 technology: Minelab’s Detector Interference Free (DIF) technology significantly reduces interference with an operating metal detector, when the pinpointer is switched off, by disengaging the pinpointer coil’s magnetic field.

    Minelab, Eq, Availability Suggestion

    Wow! Sorry you feel that way. I suspect you would also complain about different models of the same automobile because you wanted the Bose speakers that were available on the XL edition, but not on the cheaper base model. These two detectors are already worth MUCH more than their selling price. The 600 DOES have wireless APTX LL capability but doesn’t include the WM-08 external wi-fi unit. Works perfectly with APTX LL wireless. So what are you after? You think they should include the $278 WM-08 for the extremely reasonable $649 price of the 600??? if so you don’t understand marketing. Oh, and the 600 DOES have the “gold” modes...just like the 800, just not individually.
