Well not much to go on but you can see him scroll through all the frequencies. I missed the multi freq setting though ...... I wish they would just say what the multi is and how it differs from FBS/BBS. Air tests and open ground depth checks are worthless. Time to get all the details!! Looks like a nice machine!! Will have to see the real world test and all the details. Just curious how to activate multi mode. Conflicting reports out there. Which is to be expected on new releases.

They did show an air test on a gold ring and the machine picked it up no problem, i was happy to see that test even though it was in air.
Also they said more videos will be put out on dirt tests, so will see what they give us.
I wonder if you can change the tones? Instead of just getting a beep?
They also said the software is upgradable and that is good if the initial release needs adjustments. I am not certain about future releases because of the CTX folks waiting so long.

Was the air test depth good?

I know a lot of people make the claim "you can't tell anything for air tests" but to them I say learn to do it correctly and you'll be singing a different tune.

An example is the FBS's which generally don't do well in air test as far as depth. Of course people say they go plenty deep in the ground which they think makes the air test worthless. No, the FBS doing poorly in air test is just showing the indication they also don't do well in freshly plowed fields. Which they don't. They are killer on good packed ground but poor in the air or in fluffy ground.



The real treasure is in the hunt...

You could hear the chatter thou they had that detector maxed out I am guessing.
But still a decent air test.

It would sure help if these testers would learn to speak English without such a horrible accent.:smile:
In an earlier video someone mention there are options for 1,2,3,4 or 25 tones plus adjustable tone breaks.
Not as many tones for description as the etrac/CTX but a good number of options nonetheless.
I'm still curious about the range of the VDI. I have seen some negative numbers on the screens but ,,,, how high?

The encouraging part of the video was the guy talking about how it has very stable ID at depth.

I realy didn't see anything but air test, even in the hole it was not cover up. Like you I would like to see some real hunts that get dug out.
