    Do manufacturers update software on MDs? How do we know if update is available?

    I saw a 1 year old Garrett ATX for sale and was curious if the software on these newer models is periodically updated (like a gps unit).

    Are there older ATX's (just an example) that have inferior firmware/software? If I buy an older unit could I be stuck with obsolete programming?

    First Texas recently did for the Fisher F-75 and the Teknetics T2. That was the first I had heard about as a large-scale undertaking. Others may do it on individual service returns.

    I imagine some already have a USB port that will allow downloading software upgrades.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    The XP Deus has updates to coil, headphones, and remote.

    Minelab CTX 3030 offers Firmware Upgrade

    From another forum:
    "Whites offers: Spectra V3i Update
    NOTE: YOU WILL LOSE YOUR CUSTOM PROGRAMS AND PROGRAM CHANGES. Write the settings down using the Vision Spreadsheet available from the menu above - Downloads - V3i Spreadsheet.
    I sent my Vision detector with headphones for the V3i update to White's in Sweet Home, Oregon. They received it on September 9th and I received it back on September 27th. Not sure why it took White's so long to perform the update. I also asked to have the switch replaced as it would stick in the depressed position. It was not repaired.
    The suggested Rx gain is now gone. White's felt that you could run higher gain than what was suggested. A new feature that I really like is you can now select which coil you are using (provided it is a White's coil). I am hoping this is to maintain an accurate depth reading. You can also choose between Polar Plot and the more familiar Spectragraph. I set mine for the new Polar Plot to see if it will help further identify targets (since then I have reverted back to the Spectragraph).
    Other updates include Support for Foreign languages, On-board Quick Reference System, Stereo mix-mode audio, Prospecting analysis scan, and Single frequency salt tracking. I have seen on the forums that everyone is pleased with the new updates."

    Garrett appears to have firmware updates available for older MD's.

    Contact the manufacture and find out is the only way unless they advertise a support site for your detector.
