I just found out today. There will be 2 different offer models one with a MSRP of $2200 and the other at $2499. I would imagine the difference it these price points would be the wireless head phone and maybe the GPS.
Call me crazy but I just put a order in for one. I personally see the benifit of GPS tracking built in to the machine, and also feel that there shouldnt be that much of a learning curve as I already dig with a E-trac.
Plus last it's waterproof, and just what I have been waiting for.Also who cares what it looks like, this aint a fashion show.

I wonder how balanced the unit is. Kinda has similarities to the Fisher F75 design and the Fisher seems like a well balanced machine. Can't wait to read the reviews. Was looking at getting an Excalibur for beach hunting so I wouldn't worry about getting hammered by a wave.

$1900 (or $2000-$2500) is cheap to many if they are making any money from the hobby. Minelab are selling so many GPX's at a far higher price so they will not worry about value for money. They could just have made it without GPS and the other gimmicks but know that thousands just have to have the latest fashion. I can't see any point to GPS with a detector. Perfectly good/light weight GPS units on the market if you want one and they have the advantage of use when your out not detecting.

Has anyone been quoted a firm price on the CTX 3030 and what all comes with it? Has there been any field tests with it yet to see how it compares with other machines?
May 11, 2012, 06:04 PM
sorry to say, even if there are field tests they are by Dealers & Manufacturers.

I figured there would be an independant out there who's had a sneak peek and an opinion. I talked with Kellyco and they don't have a price for it yet either....even though they say they will take orders for it! Yeah, right, I'm going to order one without knowing the cost and what you get with it? They're supposed to go on"sale" the 28th so maybe we'll know something by then!

No one is going to publish a price till Minelab's set date........All anyone is doing till then is guessing...

I have to say......got my rear end burned by being one of the AT's first buyers. Had to send it back three times and even now, I am not 100% sure it works as advertised. I really think I will wait until the bugs are worked out on this one. Even though I swear by my Excal and I know Minelab knows what they are doing....just don't want the headaches with being one of the first test buyers, especially at $2500.
I will get one. Just will wait a bit!

Personally I don't think Garrett has a thing to worry about, just my opinion

All I can say is this machine is everything and more than what is being hyped. I pick mine up this week at training.
