  1. Well, I have to admit I was totally wrong about accessory coils for the Simplex+. Every other new model from this company was swamped with accessory coils in short order, and I assumed it would be the same with Simplex. Nothing from Nokta/Makro and no aftermarket coils either after half a year. The difference now is so striking it makes me wonder what is up. Or have I missed something?
  2. Took simplex underwater for first time and after three seconds or so a pop and screen had lines go through it and speaker loud screech and then nothing and will not cut on. This was sent to me by Dilek herself to try out and test. I have contacted her and let her know. No replacement or anything. So I guess since I was testing it and I enjoyed it on land use and found a few civil war buttons but as soon as I submerged it and the machine failed so I failed as a tester? Idk tell me. My Equinox never did this.
  3. First off I am getting the Simplex primarily as a backup for my fresh water wading. It also has a chance to become my first choice as MF is not needed for fresh water hunting. I have used many single freq machine in the lakes here, 12 Khz and high gain should get it done quite nicely which leads to why my request for the proper coil. Wading for jewelry is all about area coverage, the more the better. To cover larger areas requires time and at my age the size of standard DD coils is a time limiting factor due to the resistance of pushing those DD coils thru the water. Looking at N/M's website they are already supplying a coil for the Anfibio/ZKruzer line that would fill the bill for me, the 9" concentric. Less drag will extend my hunt time and the real kicker, the increased sensitivity to small gold due to the concentric design. Please N/M give me my coil! Thanks for the pic Steve
  4. I have a Simplex+ and am thinking seriously of thinking selling the Simplex and buying the Vanquish 440.I have nothing really negative to say about the Simplex. I have the Nox 800 and think that the TID on the Vanquish will be similar to the Nox 800 for the same targets? Am I right?With the Simplex and the Nox 800 I have two sets of numbers to remember. Don't need that.Plus I like the tones on the 800 better than the Simplex. How do the tones on the V 440 compare to the 800?Plus I like the Multi-frequency aspect of the Vanquish.Thanks for any help you can give me.

  6. Many know I like to tinker with metal detectors and customize them to my personal tastes......So that is what I did to my Simplex. Since it is not the version with the wireless headphones and need to use the supplied wired headphone adapter, a mod was made. The supplied wired headphone adapter is too short, the wire kind of whimpy. Also, did not place the headphone wires in a position that wasn't cumbersome. A much longer adapter was made up, so the headphones can be plugged in by the arm cuff. Now the headphone wire will run up the side of the body. Out of the way. Less chance of snag ups or pulling your headphones off the top off your head when you lay the detector down. Not pictured, when the headphones are plugged in, the wires is secured with a cable tie thru the arm cuff strap slots. I can also go wireless using an aftermarket wireless headphone. I can plug in the transmitter into the adapter jack and place the transmitter in the convenient holder under the armcuff. Very nice set-up. As you can now water hunt, a bit deeper. Pictures below.
  7. The manual that came with my Simplex shows I should have 5 Frequency Shifts on my Simplex but the detector shows only 3 . I’d like to hear from anyone on what your detector has . This has been talked about already but if just think about making a change you’re too late. Sometimes you have to push a button just right but again you could be too late because of that . I don’t know how others feel but after about the third time of having to deal with this I’m ready to set it aside. It would help if you didn’t have to cycle from the start point again. If it stayed locked at the last point until you wanted to move would be great. I’ll say Thanks ahead for your response. Chuck

  9. Hello everyone , I am new to this community and I am looking forward to share my detecting experience as I get familiar with the site. I am interested to see if others are having difficulty with the low volume on the Simplex green wireless headphones . I am older and don’t think my hearing is that bad but I really struggle to hear the sounds with these headphones. I bought the Simplex as a detector that my friends can use if I have an extra guest on a hunt . I normally use a Deus and have no trouble hearing the soft tones on deep targets . Does anyone have any info on the Simplex phone volume ?
  10. Hi all! I'm new to metal detecting, and am looking to upgrade my machine soon. I got into detecting in September, when I got my harbor freight 9 function detector. I've had a lot of fun and have made some great finds. However, with all the clad and silver I've found, I've been thinking of upgrading, that's when I started hearing about the simplex. MY first question is if I buy a simplex, how do I get the battery replaced if it ever goes bad? What about after the warranty expires? Am I correct in my understanding that it's internal and has to be replaced by nokta? Is it possible to replace the battery myself? Second, is about coils. Is it possible different coils will be available in the future? Finally, headphones. Is it possible to buy the base model now, and buy noktas wireless headphones later? I currently use some cheapy ear buds, but want to be able to upgrade later, so want to be sure and get the correct variant. Thanks
  11. Well I’m not sure but I think this is my second time out with my Simplex . I was detecting and the last time out I had blocked several ID numbers. Before I left home I’d viewed the video on doing a reset. I told myself just do that and clear all at one time. Well that worked great and away I went detecting. After pinpointing the third target I didn’t have any sound but showed the ID . I checked the volume and all other settings but couldn’t find anything wrong. I did hear the speaker crackle one time but that was it. I called the repair center and they said send it in with a note saying about the trouble I’m having. Nothing was said about the center paying shipping.. But that’s life! Chuck
  12. Hi all...new to forum as I am also new to metal detecting. Just received my Simplex, going over the settings and I noticed something that I hope other owners can help me with. In the manual it says there are 5 Frequency Shift settings, F1 thru F5. In every YouTube video I've watched, that shows the settings of the Simplex, I've seen these 5 "F" settings. But on mine I have just 3 (F1, F2 & F3). Does anyone know why mine is just showing 3? Yes I've updated the firmware and running v2.68. Note: it was also showing just 3 Frequency Shift setting options before I updated the firmware from v2.67.
  13. The detector is able to operate normally even when charging from a power bank😏. It cannot be paired with regular bt headphones😐.
  14. To revert back to factory defaults please follow the steps below: * Turn the detector on by pressing the power button. * Once the SIMPLEX+ logo appears on the screen, press and hold down the Settings and Pinpoint/Confirm button simultaneously until 3 short beeps are heard. For a hard reset in case of any unresponsiveness of the system, press and hold down for about 6 seconds.
  15. I think you would like a coil like this on your Simplex Tom. Very thin. Sweeps thru the water incredible.
  16. A coil issue has been found in the first U.K. deliveries of the Simplex. Some, not all, detectors have exhibited false signals after the coil gets wet. Existing customers that experience the problem can get the coil replaced. Nokta/Makro has identified the cause and is purging the bad coils from the supply line. This may result in delivery delays as the situation is being addressed. As far as I know no U.S. deliveries have been made yet, and this may delay those deliveries for those with orders already in place. Proving once again that waiting a bit is not a bad idea when new detectors come out.

  21. I’m posting this to help our fellow man or woman. What we have out here is a lot of V -Want to be’s But the only place they can get them is at Shaft Sports. So you ask what can a Simplex + owner do . Well first just let them hold your Simplex and tell them they can buy it from a dealer that will be there after the sale . If they ask why holding the Simplex it makes them nervous. Be sure to tell them you got it on vibrate. Do let them know it’s waterproof too . If they want to know how many different Simplex + are they just let them down easy and tell them Dilek said just one . I myself was looking maybe to buy a V but you won’t find me at Shaft Spots buying it . At this time in my life with my Simplex + I’m not sure of the need of a V. Chuck
  22. Hello I am from France where we are lucky, cause I have received my Simplex 1 month ago. My question is : is there a wireless headphone, not from NOKTA, working for SIMPLEX ? Now, there are 5 NOKTA Headphones. Green, blue, red and black and waterproof...
