    I went from an ACE250 to the Nox 600. So very similar to
    what you are doing. Here are some learning points:
    -keep the sensitivity around 20, don’t be tempted to crank it up like you could with your ACE. Cranking the Nox will actually reduce your finds and at 20 you will still dig a deep dime.
    -start out with mid range recovery speed. Cranking it to high speed is a difficult jump for ACE users
    -stick with Park1, no Horseshoe until you can identify the good tones from the trash
    -learn the good tones, lots more sounds coming out of the Nox VS the ACE and they come much faster. Your brain needs to be trained to filter out a lot of garbage noise and listen for the tones you are going for, most likely the really high squeaky ones. Cranking the volume helped me as well, with my ACE I could hang the headphones around my neck when hunting

    You should be able to unbox, assemble, charge it then head to a park and start finding targets, but it will take a few hundred hours to fully make the transition and master it. Try not to get frustrated, it will take time. I’m still learning. Just my opinion.

    Some of my buddies and I would get a new surfboard but in the same color so the wives wouldn’t know we just bought another one and I was hoping she wouldn’t see yet another detector. There’s no fooling the wife she sniffed it out immediately! Lol!
    So I thought, ok, I’ll sell my Deus to offset costs and loaded it up for sale and my wife asked, “what are doing? Don’t sell your Deus. It’s not worth it!” So off the market it went. Lol!
    Ah the freedom of marriage. It’s a great return on investment.
