    Yes ..... i'm sure it's a great machine ......not $560 great over the Simplex is what I figure ! Pete

    To me, adding a Simplex to an Apex to get an Equinox is like adding a Dart to a Jeep to get a Viper. None are bad choices, but, which would you rather drive? There actually are no wrong answers here, just different uses and results.

    I'd take the Dart for the price and a Jeep because it's all terrain and be happy with my game .....tho i'd love to drive a Viper just for the Hell of it !! My point was MAYBE I could have 2 great but different detectors for the price of one maybe so so one according to my needs or wants ! Again i'm only nixing the nox largely because of price and my style and logic ? Please don't read more into this then that . Pete

    Yes I know, its is better than nothing but wrecks my hunting style so I'd greatly prefer no or at least minimal interference.

    The Garrett pin point interferes with the Simplex, Yes, the new software update (fairly easy to complete) will solve the problem by muting (ON/OFF pin pointer function push) the detector; not something I wish to do. I purchased the Nokta Pulsedive pin pointer and the problem is solved, plus it connected though wireless to my headphones...very cool. The new pin pointer is very cool and has many adjustments to play with if your into tinkering.

    The need two fix two things during the next software update to make it an absolute killer machine. (1) The detector pin function should be ON/OFF like Minelab, not continuous hold down.
    (2) more tones per detecting mode need to be added. For example, each mode should be operator selective 2, 3, 4, 5 then say 20. This will give the operator much more visual relief (VID) and can rely on tones, as most experience hunter do.

    Just pick up a vanquish 440. This way you get best of both worlds and keep your $$$. I have been using a Simplex and a Vanquish for a while now and it is working out great.
