Software Update


Software Upgrade 3.0

What is new?

A new Single Frequency of 4 kHz has been added to the existing 5, 10, 15, 20 and 40 kHz options. This new 4 kHz frequency enhances the detection of large deep targets, particularly those found in parts of Asia. As a result of optimising for these conditions, this new frequency may respond differently for users compared to the other single frequencies. 

All other single and multi-frequency settings are unchanged in their performance. 

In addition to the 4 kHz upgrade feature, various stability enhancements have been included.

Great deal on a refurbished Equinox 800

High Plains Prospectors gave me a great deal on a refurbished Minelab Equinox 800 metal detector. This item was refurbished by the factory and is as good as brand new. I have purchased new metal detectors from High Plains and trust them to steer me right on my purchases.
