  1. No promises but you will hopefully get your wish granted... we are not done with updates:-)
  2. https://www.detectorprospector.com/forums/topic/19228-legend-update/
  3. Dear Valued Members, Soon to be released 1.08 update will include the following: 1. Iron Filter (Iron Bias) and Stability settings have been added. When the device is working in Multi frequency, select the Recovery Speed setting and press the pinpoint button. Iron Filter (IF) setting ranges between 1-8 and the default value is 8. DEFAULT VALUE 8 IS THE SAME AS THE CURRENT LEGEND WITH NO IRON FILTER SETTING. Lower IF setting will increase the chances of ferrous targets to be classified as non-ferrous targets and vice versa. St setting is the fine tuning for the IF setting. When the IF is set to 8, the St setting will be inactive in the Park, Field and Gold Field modes. When the IF is set to any value below 8, the St setting can be activated by pressing the right or left button and can be adjusted by using the + and - buttons. NOTE: THE st SETTING IN THE BEACH MODE IS DIFFERENT THAN THIS NEW st SETTING! 2. Multi 3 (M3) has been added to PARK and FIELD modes. Ideal for humid, wet and/or conductive soils. It eliminates the moisture in the soils which can cause falses. It also weakens the response of targets generating 10-11 IDs such as coke and aluminum foil. 3. The selected setting in the settings menu will now blink for easier viewing. 4. Mute function has been added. On the main screen, press and hold the Frequency button to mute the device. Letters "AO" (Audio Off) will appear on the right side. You can unmute by pressing and holding the Frequency button. Even if muted, the device will revert back to unmute in the custom discrimination pattern (notch), ground balance and settings menus automatically. 5. Auto sensitivity drop in the custom discrimination pattern When you select the custom discrimination pattern (notch), the sensitivity drops down to 5 automatically. However, if you are using the automatic notch, you may not want the sensitivity to be lowered. In this case, press the Ground Balance button once to revert back to the current sensitivity. Letters "CS" (current sensitivity) will be displayed on the right side. 6. Hearing the audio through the speaker and the Bluetooth headphones at the same time When the Bluetooth setting is selected, if the Bluetooth HPs are paired, press the up button and select 2. 7. Reverting Back to Factory Defaults After selecting the user profile in the settings menu, press and hold the pinpoint button until letters Fd appear on screen. Fd will disappear after 2 seconds. 8. Audio Gain setting has been added. In the PARK, FIELD and BEACH modes, after selecting the volume, press the pinpoint button. Letters AG will appear on the right side. You can adjust the AG using the + and – buttons between 1-6. The default value is set to 3. 9. VCO Tone Pitch has been added In Tone Pitch, as the coil approaches the target, the audio frequency will change in proportion to the signal strength. It can be selected from the number of tones setting and is shown with a P. 10. Discrimination Pattern is now saved. Default discrimination pattern for PARK, FIELD, and BEACH has been defined as “F (Ferro-off)” and as “G (Ground-off)” in the Gold Field Mode. 11. Mineralization Indicator In the ground balance menu, press the discrimination button to activate the mineralization indicator. Letter GI (Ground Indicator) will appear on the right side. When you press the discrimination button again, it will revert back to Ferro Check and FC will appear. 12. The default threshold frequency level in Park, Field and Beach modes have been changed to 10. 13. Threshold parameters have been updated in the Park, Field and Beach modes. 14. Audio during ground balancing has been updated. https://www.facebook.com/noktadetect...35000278261127 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZqqKz4reAg&t=40s

  8. If you have any issues updating your Legend, please read the troubleshooting guide below: TROUBLESHOOTING Windows 1. Disable your antivirus program. 2. Plug the device into a different USB port, if your computer has more than one, to see if the problem is specific to one port. 3. The right drivers must be installed – Go to www.silabs.com/developers/usb-to-uart-bridge-vcp-drivers and install the driver according to your computer’s operating system. 4. Type "Control Panel" into the Windows search bar and select Control Panel. Go to Power Options > Change Plan Settings > Change advanced power settings. Find USB Settings, then drill down to USB selective suspend setting. Disable the options next to On battery and Plugged in, then click Apply. You must then restart your PC to stop it from turning off the USB ports unnecessarily. MacOS 1. Disable your antivirus program. 2. Plug the device into a different USB port, if your computer has more than one, to see if the problem is specific to one port. 3. The right drivers must be installed – Go to www.silabs.com/developers/usb-to-uart-bridge-vcp-drivers and install the driver according to your computer’s operating system. 4. In the Finder on your Mac, locate the app you want to open. Don’t use Launchpad to do this. Launchpad doesn’t allow you to access the shortcut menu. Control-click the app icon, then choose Open from the shortcut menu. Click Open. The app is saved as an exception to your security settings, and you can open it in the future by double-clicking it just as you can any registered app. Note: You can also grant an exception for a blocked app by clicking the Open Anyway button in the General pane of Security & Privacy preferences. This button is available for about an hour after you try to open the app. To change these preferences on your Mac, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Security & Privacy , then click General.
  9. Hello all... THIS QUESTION IS DIRECTED TO LEGEND USERS ONLY: As we are working on the next update, please list the items you would like to be added / changed in the Legend (NO NEED TO MENTION IRON BIAS AS THAT IS ALREADY PART OF THE LIST). You can also list any accessory requests. Once we gather this information, we will focus on those that are requested by the majority of users (not limited to this forum) and will try our best to give them to our valued users. THANK YOU SO MUCH IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION! Dilek
  10. Can you expand on the inline part? You mean you attach the pinpointer to the device?
  11. Hello all.... copied all the posts in a word document and will go through them myself first and then share with the engineers. A few questions - 1) IS GPS NECESSARY/BENEFICIAL ON A PI UNIT? 2) IS COLOR SCREEN MORE PREFERRED? ADVANTAGES / DISADVANTAGES 3) ARE YOU OK WITH AN EXTERNAL CABLE AROUND THE SHAFT? 4) COILS - SIZES AND SHAPES (3 PLEASE) 5) IS 10 FT WATERPROOF GOOD ENOUGH? PS. Sorry if any of these were mentioned already in the posts.... did not read them all yet.
  12. Hello all.... I am way too busy to go through each and every comment. Can somebody summarize what is expected?
