    If that were to be true the that would prove the 600 was running 5 frequencies in multi and after the update multi would be 6 freq on the 600. That would be nice..
    have to see if the 600 will take the update. I wish I had a place to do the update. Last time I had to go to a nearby town and use their computer for the update.

    Does anyone seriously figure that ML tweaked-in a 4K frequency just for the 800? That makes zero sense..

    The 600 was always using 5 frequencies in multi. It's just the 20khz and 40 khz single frequencies that the 600 didn't have. My understanding is that the new 4khz is just an additional single frequency, and not added to multi as a 6th..

    Wish Minelab would explain their upgrades better so we don’t have all the confusions.
    And dose it do anything else in the update. It says for Asia so do we need to do the update on other parts of the world.

    " In addition to the 4 kHz upgrade feature, various stability enhancements have been included. "

    I just updated my 600 today and tried it out for a little while. So far my pinpoint feature seems a little different (for the better) and also picking up deeper targets in places i have previously detected. My tid's are a little different than they were, but seems to be more stable.
    I wish minelab would explain the details better too, but figured it would be worth a shot updating to the newest firmware.
    Still alot of testing to be done, but so far so good for me. I figure if end up not liking it, I can always change it back.. its nice we all have that option.
    I think that it will take some getting used to figure out the details and nuances of how this new version works for us, as we are are familiar with the firmware we have been using. Nothing like learning the same machine again for the third time! But it dont think it will be too hard. I guess time will tell if we all like it or not. Hopefully it will unlock some better treasures for us all!!
    Happy hunting

    I installed it and took it out for a test run and I will say that it seems to have quieted the machine down *considerably*. None of that random (non-EMI) chatter, even at sensitivity of 25. I'm happy, so far at least.

    How reliable is your source for that information? That's a pretty big (IMO) detail for them to leave us guessing on. It seems to me that 4kHz added into the multi mix could be an excellent addition.

    I've installed V 3 on my 800. I'll use it on Cocoa Beach this evening and report back.

    Looking at the youtube test it looks like the 4khz is only added to single frequency and not the multi but I may be wring.
    4khz seemed to be mich more stable and quieter than 5khz. and multi.
    Minelab is terrible on explain to us on what they are doing when they put out an update. They are lacking in public relations.
    We had this same confusion with the F2 update.

    He tests each frequency alone but how do we know if it is added to the multi? Only ML knows I guess.

    Iím not sure but I donít think so because when he had it in multi it wasnít hitting on it as well but I may be wrong. I think it was just added to single freq.

    Minelab has NEVER given good explanations of the internal workings of their machines. Most of us gave up worrying and just enjoy the fact they outperform everything else, however they do it.
