    Same settings used here as noted above on both Nickel and clad dime.

    US Clad Quarter

    One 2x4



    Two 2x4s


    An occasional 2 triangles shown with this test.

    Three 2x4s



    Four 2x4s



    Five 2x4s



    Based on these tests, I think depth meter performance has been improved with software update.

    How and where do you get it updated? Do you have to send it to Minelab?

    How to update is in this thread posted here.
    Equinox update

    You don’t send anything in to Minelab, dealer, etc.
    You just need a computer, or access to a computer.

    There is a hyper link in the article where it says to download the MMU software on the second page below the system requirements. I didn't figure that out till it was pointed out in the other update thread.

    Did i miss something here . I thought each increment represents 2". the only one accurate in the pics is the quarter with the 1-2x4..the rest are off by 2 ". it`s showing 2" deeper than it should..

    GT,

    I was wondering the something then it hit me, I didn't take into account that the coil was being swept a little above the top of the 2x4, so with that being said, if the coils being swept 1" above the top if the 2x4 and since the the Nox does't read in .5", increments it's probably rounding to the highest number, plus the Nox as well as most machines are basing the depth on Quarter sized targets. This is my opinion only, as I'm no expert, I hope my info is correct and it helped... Take care and God Bless!!!
