    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.

    So, I called Minelab in Pennsylvania. They said, 4th frequency is stand alone. Designed for deep silver targets in Asia. Apparently as a result of different soil types. It should work well for silver. That's about it. It is not in the multi frequency settings.

    Correct James it is a stand alone for now. Hopefully we will see something with it included in a future update.

    OK, one more thing. I needed to do the 2.0 download first. Go into deep settings and change it to F2. Then to the 3.0 download for the 4mhz. Machine seemed to work better. less noise, slight better discrimination and I can't wait to try for some big silver objects in Asia....who's in?

    I think ? When it checked what upgrade you have it may ask to upgrade to 2.0 and then you could do that then upgrade to 3.0.
    or it might just load both.

    How on earth does someone get Minelab to add a specialized feature like that?

    Good question, especially since they won't listen to the many US users who have requested an 8" coil since the machine came out. Maybe time to start bugging them again to make an 8" coil available.

    It wanted to load the 2.0. I went back later after talking to Minelab guys and they said go back and find the 3.0. So I did. Machine seems to run quieter all around. You do need to go into deep settings and change discrim to F2

    One could probably get a pretty good deal on airline tickets to Asia right now...

    The problem is... what part of Asia? Its kind of a big place. Siberia, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam, Borneo... does it matter?

    Maybe there's a FB group for metal detecting Asia.

    OK, the update is 3.0 Type tthat in google and it will take you to the right page. Other people reported the machine running quieter all the way around. I noticed it too. It does work better with silver.

    In the middle of the DL , stops dead . It turned the machine off and it will not fire back up . Download failed contact ML support . Reset / nothing . I can hook up the charger and the green light blinks like it is in a race . Emailed ML support seeing its sunday . First hickup with the machine for me but it was the update not the machine / performance issue .
