    Probably a long shot, but can the XP Deus II link to and work with the previous Deus Stardard and HF coils? I'm assuming it's a yes but unable to go into MF mode? But everything looks the same, and since those original coils are adjustable frequencies and even frequency offsets, then that...

  12. Detectors with threshold?

    Hey everybody. I'm part of a MD buy,sell,&trade group on FB. I want to put my Minelab GoldMonster 1000 up for trade, but one of the rules of the group is you have to state an asking price, or what you would trade for. So you can't say "make offer" or "just seeing what's out there." I figured...

  16. Questioning the Spanish and old timers

    Has anybody ever wondered how the Spanish were so good at finding gold? It appears that wherever the Spanish had mined, the old timers stumbled upon those same sights 250-300 years later.
