Nokta SimplEX detector (price $299). NEW 2019

Makro, the Turkish manufacturer, has announced a novelty 2019 – a new cheap Makro Simplex machine. The price starts at $200, and… this device will be able to search both on land and underwater. Awesome! The metal detecting world has never seen such a low-priced amphibious unit. However, there is one catch.

Nokta SimplEX detector (price starting at $200). NEW 2019

It was at Detectival 2018, the UK metal detecting rally, when Makro-Nokta’s representative Dilek Gonulay declared a new product – the Makro Simplex (maybe it will be the Nokta Simplex, or even the two clones under two different brand names).

According to Dilek, the new machine will enter the low-cost and very low-cost detector segment. The starting price for the Nokta Simplex is $200. There will be different configuration and features options as well, so the unit price may reach $400. Although the $250 price tag will probably be the most attractive.

What will the Nokta Simplex surprise us with? Well, it’s a really easy to operate device. This is the case when you just turn it on and you are ready to go metal detecting. With that, the Nokta Simplex has the minimum set of all features that are necessary while searching for decent finds. An option – the second machine for a professional user – is also included in the Nokta Simplex ration.

The main feature of the Nokta Simplex is definitely to enhance your metal detecting possibilities through underwater searching. Thus, apart from its ground search ability, the Nokta Simplex can be submerged in water up to 3 meters. Plus, the detector can be connected to the wireless headphones.

The Nokta Simplex comes with a DD search coil. Launch schedule: early 2019. It is worth noting that the first info about the Turkish-made novelty appeared in spring 2018. But the device shown as a prototype (it wasn’t operational, by the way) turned out to be a model that looks nothing like the final version. Everything is different including the shaft and search coil.


Nokta| Makro: A compact detector, fully waterproof submersible up to 3 meters (10ft.), with built- in wireless, retractable shaft (25″), only 2.9 lbs, 4 search modes including a beach mode, no GB required, with LED flashlight, with vibration, with frequency shift, backlight, lighted keypad, notch disc, iron volume, very easy-to-use, updateable, with built-in lipo battery, with 11″ DD coil, offering depth of a hi-end detector for $299.

How about GB? Nokta| Makro: No, it has nothing to do with the price…we wanted to make it a very easy to use, turn on and go detector. The ground balancing is auto tracking.
However, if the majority of customers demand a GB function to be added (after using the device) it can be done. easily

Nokta| Makro: Not much other than it is in the works… I went through literally a few thousand names. I personally picked my 3 favorites. If we announce the name now, people may be misled thinking we will release it soon so we will keep it to ourselves until we are close to launching the product itself. Thank you for your understanding,

  • What a gorgeous machine!

  • So when will these new metal detectors be available? Will this top machine be multi frequency like the equinox or just several single frequencies to choose from?

    • SimplEX is low-end metal detector it will never be “multy-frequency”!
      Cheap single-frequency machine for kids and beginners.

    • No machine other than minelab can use true multi frequancy, they’ve got the patent wrapped up.i think what you mean ,will it have a choice of frequancies.

      • Wrong…..Whites V3i also is a multi freq machine that shoots 3 freqs in the ground at once.

      • Is this available in the Philippines? If it is then may I know the details of the distributor?
        Many thanks!

  • Because of the price tag a lot of people consider it to be a machine for kid, it bs ! Look at the features price has nothing to do with for kid or not.

  • Hi i own one of Nokta/Makro machines for over 2 years and i like its performance on salt water beaches of Florida and the depth is untouchable with any single frequency machines made by other well known manufacturers i have used for years, i must say its one of my favorite detectors,knowing that about Nokta/Makro i would like to have the Nokta/Makro Simplex machine for testing , i am very optimistic about the product and would be very happy to own one to compare it with other machines i own and test its capability’s. Thank you Nokta /Makro team keep the good work of quality products.

  • Now they say it will be won’t be able to make it to the market until mid fall. I think it’s all fake news. Why would they make a great machine for$ 300.00 ? They wouldn’t be able to sell their other machines for 3 times the money. Think about that.

  • i ask the nokta for the simplex end they sey august is goingh to the market
