Here’s a pictorial review of what’s inside the new Nokta Makro Legend machine. An interesting survey and a must-see for everybody who wants to buy this detector. Plus, it will surely come in useful for those who will be minded to repair their machines themselves (but don’t do it as in this case you’ll lose your warranty).
All about the Nokta Legend is collected here (news, tests, comparisons with other devices, different reviews and opinions). Plus, on Knowledgebase pages there is additional information you should know before buying the Nokta Legend. The experience of others will help you save your time and money. Happy hunting to everyone!
can you get a clear shot of the CPU chip or just post the number
If possible, post a picture of the internal circuit of the nokta macro dd coil. Thankful
Is the Legend just a Simplex with a faster processor? Compare and contrast.
No, they tried to copy the tones and functionality of an Equinox and priced it a bit cheaper. They literally targeted the equinox in their marketing. I’m already noticing people buying them, comparing them with the Equinox and selling the Legends on ebay as used or open box. That’s what I was going to do but just decided I’ll wait till I run into one down the road since it didn’t best the Equinox. I got their multi cruiser to check out. It reminded me of a copy of a Garrett Apex. I did not like that since I prefer Minelab. I think many other people felt that way that’s why they came out with the legend.
I came back to this to remember if the Legend can be disassembled for repair. I have now sent an Equinox 600 in twice for replacement. I was sent one back that had something rattling in it. I also have the 800. My 800 warranty is coming to an end if it hasn’t yet. I chose the 600 over the Legend. I am going to have to pick up a cheap used legend eventually since they can be worked on after the warranty runs out. The equinox is sealed shut. Might be time to sell the 800 and get another with some warranty. But that is a positive for Nokta in that they make their shallow water machines servacable. Good for them, I will get one eventually.
Structure, technology and performance far surpassed the equinox. Best of all, it’s really waterproof, unlike the equinox that loves to drink water.
Really?? So when the buttons rubber will exhaust, the machine could drawn? Too old concept for me…weak mechanism.
And now what will happen with Legend when Minelab is suing Nokta ?
Minelab has to run to recover the loss, it launched a device (manticore) that flopped. And now, in order not to miss too much, it has launched eqx again with the version most similar to The Legend. They only added a frequency and other functions that Nokta uses (they could have done an update on the old eqx) but there are too many people to be fooled again.
