Minelab Equinox battery doesn’t work (water in battery compartment) +

The proud owner of the Minelab Equinox 600, nicknamed palangsi (dankowskidetectors.com) shared his sad story.

Minelab Equinox 600/800: software updates

It’s because of your arm that is too long, and we didn’t bargain for its being of not the right size. As a matter of fact, it took Garrett many years to supply their machine with the camlocks. And it’s of no consideration that it’s been a long time since the competitors provided their devices with such locks. And it doesn’t really matter that the shaft of the expensive – costing more than $1,000 back at the time – detector wobbles at each sweep. It’s your purchase, isn’t it? So, from now on that’s your funeral! Let’s take a look at a few improvements for the Minelab Equinox 600/800. In your opinion, might it work for this machine? Continue reading
