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

Pinpointer of the future (NEW 2018). You’ll be finger searching!

This blog contains some posts about smart metal detectors of the future, and it’s definitely a good thing. But why today is nobody speaking about a smart pinpointer, or at least the one of the future? As it’s an open question which of these two will become smarter first. So, let’s take a look at… I don’t even know how to call it properly. This probe can’t be called smart, but surely nobody will argue that it’s a unit that has come from the future. Just imagine: you put the pinpointer on your finger like a usual ring and turn into a hero – Detectorist-Man. Just look at this interesting and unexpected solution, you certainly haven’t seen such a conceptual idea before: Continue reading

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
