    Get more from your Minelab EQUINOX metal Detector.

    At Minelab, we get your passion. And like you, we never leave any stone unturned. It’s that same grit and determination that drives us to make every product and every innovation just that much better.

    What is new?

    Difficult ferrous targets — the common enemy for all detectorists. That is until EQUINOX. Hit the download on our EQUINOX update to make those pesky bottle caps, rusty nails and other falsing targets a thing of the past. Fire up the Minelab Update Utility and you’re on your way. It’s simple. You’ll experience the enhanced Iron Bias feature, improved EQUINOX 600 backlight and much more.

    Improved Iron Bias

    Iron Bias has been enhanced with the addition of a new Iron Bias settings profile. The original EQUINOX Iron Bias 'FE' settings will still be available, but there is now the option to switch to the new Iron Bias 'F2' settings, which have an improved capability to reject a much wider range of difficult iron targets, including bottle caps.

    EQUINOX 600 Backlight Brightness

    The EQUINOX 600 now has the ability to adjust the backlight brightness to an additional 'Low' setting that matches the minimum setting on the EQUINOX 800. This 'Low' brightness is ideal for detecting at night and in low light conditions.

  • Update on shipping and Nokta Makro Simplex Metal Detector now with Auto and manual ground balance!

    Based on feedbacks received from our Nokta Makro customers at many events from users as well as customers reaching out to us through forums and emails, we (Nokta Makro) decided to incorporate both auto and manual ground balancing to the device. The Field and Park modes still can be used without ground balancing in many areas but for experienced users and tough conditions, ground balancing can now be done automatically as well as manually.

     

    This has been the major update on the device along with some other minor changes.

     

    We apologize for the delay but at the end of the day Simplex+ just became more powerful than it was before. Thank you for your understanding.

  • Back to School is the best time to get out and metal detect!

    Every year around this time, many parents rejoice at the prospect of a bit of peace and quiet while their little ones head off back to school. For metal detectorists, back to school is usualy the green light to get out and start hunting those once packed parks and beaches!

    As many of you know, September usually brings in some cooler weather and even a bit of much needed rain, if you've ever tried to detect on fields during the summer, you know how much of a challenge digging in dry dirt can be. Back to school time is the perfect opportunity to get into metal detecting if you've been considering it as a hobby, almost all of the parks that have been bustling during the summer vacation months will be deserted, leaving you all alone to dig up any treasures that may have been left behind.

    Beaches and rivers are also prime hunting grounds during back to school weeks, summer sees huge tourism which usually means lots of lost jewelry and electronics scattered around the shores to be found. If your looking to get started with metal detecting, now couldn't be a more perfect time to begin! Please check out our large selection of metal detectors and as always, give us a call if you have any questions and Happy hunting!
