    Things you dislike most about your Deus

    Yeah... it's about to get real.

    I know we all love our Deus's but..

    What are the gripes?

    What would you change?


    I'll start...
    In no particular order:
    - I wish the stem stand was long enough that my darn machine wouldn't roll away down the hill
    - I wish it chattered less, it's a bit noisy
    - I wish ground balance tracking had an assignable + and - value

    It would be nice if it had a bigger color display...

    Something more like a smart phone display.

    But it's perfect isn't it?

    Hmm, off the top of my head, I can think of a couple wish list items:

    * I wish there was a coaxial coil option.

    *The inherent flaw of the design is that accessory/replacement coils are expensive and cannot accommodate a small form factor like a sniper coil.

    *I wish ID norm was referenced to 8 khz instead of 18khz, don't understand why anyone would find scrunching all the high conductor TIDs together would be a good thing.

    *I wish the silencer default was -1 or 0 irrespective of reactivuty setting.

    *I wish the pinpointer discriminated or provided tone ID or displayed target ID on the remote like a sunray probe.

    *I wish the HF coils also accomodated the low end legacy frequency settings (at least as low as 8 khz) and that TX power was not locked at 2.

    *I wish TX power could be adjusted for 4 khz or at least not locked on TX3.

    *I wish there were more custom program slots.

    * I wish you could modify built-in programs and save the changes in the associated built-in slot for future use and be able to easily revert them back to the factory default if things got too crazy (without having to do a global reset or reload of the firmware).

    *I wish you could upload saved custom programs from your PC via USB or from your phone via a wireless connection.

    Is that enough?

    Agreed with ground balance tracking plus and minus.
    Reactivity adjustments changing the silencer settings.
    Not exactly the Deus, but I think they missed an opportunity of having the pin pointer sound out the actual tone that it is detecting.
    Better timing on updates as vs 4.0 was supposed to be released a year ago.
    I know the Deus is a tone machine but maybe TID readings on deeper targets?

    Mine digs everything to the point I don't think I have a bucket list anymore. No complaints. Except the dirt doesn't clean itself off.

    I loved the design and all it's tweaking capabilities, my only gripe is that it sure does like to ring in big iron as big silver. I dug more iron with the Deus than with any other detector I have used.

    Not enough time to use it!!

    But really I agree with the other comments, I think they would only make a great machine better.

    A mute button would be nice so when you lay it down to dig it would quit chattering.

    1 - better high carbon iron discrimination
    2 - the damn thing ALWAYS rolls down the hill!!
    3 - the fact it bends with heavy coils on.
    4 - sound is to low when using just the LCD
    5 - no after market coils period.
    6 - small coil selection
    7 - everything that V said above I totally agree with and hope XP takes this thread to heart.
    8 - the fact that the Dues II will come out with all above issues addressed and I'll have to spend another $1.5K ☺️

    What V said, but I will add... plugging the USB recharger into the WS5 headphones is a nightmare. A year later, I still struggle.

    One of the reasons the new pinpointer is great, tho kind of an expensive mute button.

    Plus it doesn't actually dig all your banner finds and coin caches for you. It still makes you dig 'em yourself, Smokey. Cruel machine that Deus. Lol.

    1.: charging clip. Had to make my own due to breaking 3 of them so far.
    2. Inability to turn the volume down on iron tones. Would be nice to be able to run the detectors disc wide open (which I do) but turn the volume down on the selected tones. I hunt in full tones and would love to be able to turn down the volume of anything below 7 by 50%. Currently "Iron volume" is useless when wide open disc is in play.

    Other than that, i am pretty happy with my Deus. I am using 3.2 version and sitting out the software upgrade.
