Probably wont be one in the box. Since Minelab is a world-wide seller I think they have found it easier to include a quick-start guide and then have the manual on CD in all the languages.

Manual on CD then but has to have one but i prefer a paperback manual and many people said that about the CTX . Maybe they have rectified that too ?

Minelab has been pretty good...

Minelab has been pretty good about making their detector manuals available for download even for older out of production models so I expect that we will see the manual available for download at release time. Not beforehand, I would think, since even the guy on one of the videos said that the interface was different on his test machine then the one he was demonstrating with. They are definitely tweaking the machines so a manual probably won't be forthcoming until the detector is released.

btw I always chuckle when I see ppl selling printed manuals for detectors on Ebay that you can find for free from the manufacturers.

I inquired from Andy if he is writing a Guide for the Equinox. He is looking at the need for one. Said he would let everybody know if he decided yes.

LOL!

Judging by the amount of "buzz" surrounding the Equinox at this point, I'd tend to think there would certainly be quite an audience, should he decide to write it! :smile:

I've purchased most of Andy's books either to better use a detector I already owned Or as an information source to help me decide if I thought a detector would work well for me. I don't know Andy personally other than he has been kind enough to respond to a Personal Message I sent to him asking if he was planning on doing a guide for the Equinox. Is there a 'NEED'?

Three of his books I have deal with detectors that are pretty technical; the explorers/etrac, the CTX 3030 and the XP Deus. For me, due to the sophistication of these detectors, I see a need for an additional 'experts' guide. Will the Equinox need an 'experts' guide as well. Or is 'need' knowing that there is a lot of interest in a detector? The Garrett AT Pro is one of the biggest sellers out there, so shouldn't there be a guide for it using the popularity criteria? Maybe food for thought. As for the Equinox, hard to tell yet, maybe so.

I was guessing that Andy might be a tester for the Equinox because of previous books on other Minelab detectors. I've found his previous books helpful and insightful and if he does decide there is a need, I look forward to reading it.

Yes, if I had to guess, I'd say Andy is at least in some way involved in the Equinox. I have nothing to back that up, other than that Minelab would be wise to have him involved...
