    Jamie, I think you'll like it much more than what you had. I assume in Florida you'll go to the beach. Make sure it gets submerged sometime in the next few months to make sure yours stays tight and dry.

    Yeah, and your head may explode. Use a stock program with no tweaking at first and dig it all, just not to miss anything.

    Hi JG, similar situations, from somewhat 'toyish' detectors to the latest tech...

    in reality, folks seem to be still digging everything, so not sure what the new kit brings except more depth and sensitivity..?
    From what i can see (youtube) the numbers are all over the place and sounds can be misleading enough...
    Waterproof though.... hooray.

    Let's see ...

    I suggest ignoring anything you see on youtube. Read the manual, do some testing, use it and form your own opinion. Too many read biased "reviews" and come away with un-real expectations or worries.

    Where it shines is where you can't dig everything..... from my limited experience.

    So it has arrived, finally. Equinox 600
    Plugged into PC, updated software in a minute flat..
    Registered with MineLab for warranty..
    Now it charges.
    Tomorrow the testing begins..
    So far so good, plastics do look a bit thin..

    Dig it all for now. Forget air testing it. You'll like it.

    First session with Nox this morning, seem to be just digging deeper rubbish...
    But i will learn the machine quickly..
    I like Field 2 settings, good balance, worked out the ground balance and noise reduction, didn't bother with the threshold settings or the tones etc... yet
    One thing i have noticed, the coil is so sensitive, even a small contatct with a twig or shrub sends a false signal, a good one too, 23 or 25... is this normal ??

    What sensitivity setting are you using? You may have to turn that down a bit.

    Could be sensitivity, i suppose ,but had it turned down to approx halfway, whatever that is, still got a falsie with every slight knock, more noticable on the left side, strangely.

    In all honesty i find the Nox to be underwhelming so far... dodgy build, thin plastics, fussy settings, and now the coil with an exposed nerve..

    AstralDruid,

    You can always touch bases with MineLab...Ask them about that "Exposed Nerve" aspect of the coil...(I.E. - Is this normal or is it just a setting related issue??)

    Give it time. Ok to stick with your Field2 mode, but you will need to put in a lot of time, truly 100 hours of swinging, until all of the little “falsing” tones are filtered out in your brain. The ACE250, was simple to use, but a good machine. Put in the time, and you will become a better detectorist with the Nox, but unfortunately you will probably find less stuff for the first few months if you have the same learning curve as I did.
