  1. Right on Andyy, on your BirdsEye how much data (size in MB/GB) does the high res typically use?
  2. Hello all, I was wondering what brand of UTV Buggy you all use? I'm going to get one but can't decide if i want a used 2017 Yamaha Wolverine R-Spec EPS SE with 1,100 miles for 8,899 OR just buy a new Pioneer 500 or 700.
  3. Update: I ended up ordering the Garmin GPSMAP 66s. I'm going to be using high res BirdsEye with the 24K SW map layer. No getting lost now!
  4. Hello everyone, I emailed whites about the voltage on the TDI SL. I asked if it was okay to use Energizer Ultimate Lithiums for a voltage of 14.48v. Here's what he said below.
  5. Hi noob, how are you liking your TDI SL?
  6. Thanks again everyone πŸ™‚ Oh i forgot to tell you all, my girlfriends GM1000 is fine. When she tumbled the shaft by the armrest unscrewed a few millimeters. So i just tightened it and all is well again. You guys are going to laugh (because i did), on the previous expedition when my girlfriend was attempting to use the GM1000, she was doing a new swinging technique i haven't seen before πŸ™‚ just think of Karate Kid and Wax On, Wax Off. lol. What's even funnier is she found a hot rock with excitement thinking it was gold, she takes the dirty hot rock hands it to me and said its gold! I said no...it isn't gold, if it was that little rock would weigh ten times as much. So the GGM1000 is going strong again and I feel like an un-experienced teacher lol πŸ™‚ P.S - GGM1000 = Girlfriends Goldmonster 1000. Next Expedition October 30th.
  7. Thanks guys i appreciate that πŸ™‚ many more expeditions to come.
  8. You're welcome. I just hope i'm not getting annoying to anyone.
  9. Hey everyone, I ended up getting one of these from Rob and it works pretty well. I'm using it with my EQ800 and a Doc's little speaker, works better than i was expecting. πŸ™‚
  10. No problem. I'll be heading out again next week. My goal is to go every week.
  11. I'm back everyone, I didn't find anything because i didn't even make it to the destination. But close. I enjoyed myself nonetheless. My girlfriend hated every bit of it, lol. She also slipped and fell on the GM1000, scraped herself up and now the GM1000 wobbles a hair. I wont even go into the complaining I heard about walking up the hills. πŸ™‚ I got there at about 11:30am temp was about 75F. It was VERY close to highway 87. Decent dirt road to the place where we parked. Continuation to the destination needed a ATV which i didn't have. The walk to the destination is about 3750ft. The area seemed not so touched by man sorta speak. was quiet, saw a prospector come out on a ATV and rode past us. I started at the purple box. I ended up at the light blue box. (notice the white turn in the wash, i have a picture) The red box was my actual destination. I think i'm going to get a Honda Pioneer 500. I can't be spending my whole time walking to these claims. πŸ™‚ Here below is what the new area looks like. I'm to new to determine if this location looks good, but i'm guessing it looks great.
  12. Expedition #5 Detector: EQ800 11" coil, GM1000 10x5" coil City/County: Rye, AZ, Gila County 69F-89F Leaving tomorrow the 23rd. I will report back.
  13. Thanks geof_junk, I'll check out the one with the subscription included.
  14. Hello everyone, I'm getting my first GPS device and narrowed it down to a few. I was wondering if anyone experienced with these can tell me if im doing this correctly or not. πŸ™‚ Garmin GPSMAP 66s or GPSMAP 64s. Which one would last the longest, most durable Also, correct me if im wrong. For us electronic prospectors wouldnt it be a good idea to get the HuntsView map? Or do i get the SE 24k and combine it with the BirdsEye What map(s) do you all use?
  15. Hi Chase, I know i'm fine i just have a soft spot for the TDI SL. Not sure why πŸ™‚
  16. Hey guys, I was curious and emailed White's to see about the new coil on the TDI SL. If anyone is interested here is what Jack from White's said.
  17. I'm looking at the B&Z audio enhancer for the GPX, the one like JP uses. Is anyone using a B&Z and what do you think about it?
  18. Thank you guys πŸ™‚ I appreciate you all for helping me in all this. It's been kind of a confusing time for me. I will take "ALL" your advice and I'm going to use with what I have and you all are right I have some good hardware and not everyone has what i have. P.S - BTW I donated the GM1000 to my girlfriend. She got excited when she found a nail. πŸ™‚
  19. Hi Steve, Do you think with the 12x8 DF coil that the TDI SL could be better than a GM1000?
  20. I like this machine, i want one. πŸ™‚ Now the question is, can we use 8 x Energizer Ultimate Lithium's to gain the voltage needed for depth. 8 x 1.81v = 14.48v
