    Btw I have unit coming. Won’t help salt water hunters much. Other than maybe I can talk about Emi and how the detectors menu is for ease of use. My unit will be a dirt hunter.

    Checked connecting both pigtail for headphones and coil connector.

    Coil connector on control keyed on top, is more or less idiot proof for proper alignment.

    Pigtail connector not as idiot proof. Pigtail when properly keyed and screwed up will extend straight down beside handle. See this pic, detector laying on its left side.

    Took my batteries 3 hours 10 minutes to charge fully. I don’t know how charged they were prior to charging.

    Here’s a real short video at night to show backlight.
    Also I make some preliminary comments on tones of detector in video.

    Some follow up info.
    Seems my unit didn’t come with protective covering on screen. Have already applied protective covering. After installation viewing is nice.
    Menu is very easy to navigate.
    I can say this only after playing with for 20 minutes.
    Hardest part of navigation will be when selecting black sand and salt. Still very easy.
    Coil bolt holds coil in place with little torque.

    At turn on battery level voltage and serial number with software revision number comes in screen. My unit has teens serial number and seems it has revision 1 software loaded.

    This detector how it feels and handles is deemed “precision instrument” imo. Haven’t run any unit that has the feel this unit does. Not CTX, not Deus, not anything.
    Very rigid yet light with exacting feedback as far as sweeping vs holding detector. NO SLOP whatsoever.
    Camlocks are adjustable for how tight they clamp. So with some use break in, some small adjustment may be necessary. Folks shouldn’t overdo how tight they adjust them for closure.

    Tones, you saw in video where I said sounds similar to AKA Sorex and MFT detector units. This is a good thing imo. I have stated on this forum and elsewhere how much I liked the tones on those units. This sound here though not in all modes.

    More later. Need to put more time on.
