Minelab Equinox 600/800: software updates

Minelab have released a software upgrade for their Minelab Equinox 600 and Minelab Equinox 800 metal detectors. According to the manufacturer, the biggest problem – silver target indication, because of which the Equinox owners even threatened to sue Minelab – has now been solved. This issue became a hot topic in summer 2018: the Minelab Equinox users complained that their devices couldn’t see (or properly identify) silver finds, e.g. coins. Continue reading

In-line filter for Minelab Equinox coil. A good thing?

The Minelab Equinox owners have come up with a suggestion – to add an in-line filter to the coil cable. This poses two questions at once: how can this filter help you increase the amount of good finds? And, if it really works, why don’t other machines have this thing yet? Dear expert metal detector users, please give us your opinions about the viability of this improvement to help our readers decide – whether or not they should put such dirt-cheap filters on their devices or, the other way around, should avoid wasting time on a fool’s errand.

Minelab Equinox: underwater wireless signal test

Do you believe in miracles? Not many deteсtorists know that all wireless technologies are up against difficulties when working underwater. By way of example, in order to transmit a signal from your heel to your head a submersible XP Deus unit should be used with an antenna that has the same length as the shaft itself. However, this doesn’t mean that the signal will be successfully transmitted, especially through the salt water. And how about the Minelab Equinox? This machine has a new-generation Bluetooth function, capable of reaching up to 100 meters. Won’t it also be able to break through the half-your-height water column? Or it will? Here’s a test of the Minelab Equinox’s wireless connectivity that can be achieved underwater. It’s really interesting! Continue reading

Minelab Equinox Coil X-Ray. Is it really the half of machine?

Minelab called their Equinox coils ‘smart’, and basically these ones stand for the half of the detector itself. I need hardly say that such coil will cost a considerable amount, and you shouldn’t be surprised… It’s interesting, of course, what Minelab are saying but the truth can’t be hidden anyway. I just want to ask, “Really, are you serious about that, Minelab?” So let’s take a look at the cool pictures: an x-ray coil for the new Minelab Equinox. Continue reading
