    Any detector can be "point and shoot" but where there are buttons and options, kids especially are going to want to explore them.
    Which may be fine, average 11 year old could likely watch a few vids and tweak a simplex as well as any one of us.

    Its the principle of starting with a ding machine and honing your skills with something basic, simple and accurate is what I think is important, then working your way up to something more advanced and capable. Plus, you are not likely to find any simplex under $200 as per the OP, Ace 250 you can.

    Mine Lab Go Find 40 is better. I have a 40 and 66. The 20 lacks pin point mode, I use this mode most (my personal preference)

    I second the 250. Gave the one I bought for my wife years ago to my 11 year old and he loves it. Light, easy to learn and tears up those tot lots.

    Heck, sometimes if I only have time to hit a tot lot before dark I'll use the 250 instead of my Equinox.
