    unbelievably lazy

    I ordered the Equinox 800 from a dealer in in Conn. I had to wait a week for him to get it. I would have thought he would
    have installed the 2.0 update from MUU before shipping it to me. Evidently, that was too much to expect. Unfortunately for me, my computer doesn't have capability of installing this F2 update. It lacks 50 MB of hard drive space and 20 MB of RAM (older Lenovo ThinkPad). Piss poor service for first time customer.

    I tried it in the yard Park 1 with Fe bias on 5. It worked very good with rusty nail on both sides of a dime and next to touching dime and got a clear signal both times. I don't think my old DFX would have been able to do that. Very impressed with this new detector. WM 08 and wireless headphones work great. Over all very satisfied!

    Awesome to hear I know many people who havent and dont want to do the up grade theres lots of thoughts about it on the minelab forum The presets I like cause its easy to use and learn before you tweak it and you dont really have to either.....Tommy

    You're using the WM08 with your wireless headphones? Why?

    Some customers would complain they did not receive a new unit in packaging is opened, updates are typically the responsibility of the purchaser.

    Did you ask for it to be updated? Maybe you should have upgraded your computer before ordering a machine that needed updating.

    I would of been happy to have the chance to update the firmware myself. This enables you to be more familiar with its operation and the update procedure. Unless you asked for it to be updated I don’t see the poor customer service as warranted.

    Nope, complete responsibility of the owner.

    I did the iron update (usually run Beach 1) and I think either there is no difference or I'm finding MORE bottle caps and larger pieces of iron than in the earlier version of the software So I don't think your missing anything. When I get the chance I'll go back to earlier version.
