Seems to me that the hype promoters are the ones using ML's, not the company. I don't own an ML anymore. Got too heavy for me. And too expensive. Maybe the Equinox will change that. I presently own an Equinox (not the detector).

Hey, look at that, MORE information has arrived and the detector software can be updated via USB port AND it's supported on MAC OSX. I'm . . . . . stunned.

Anybody else get the sense that Minelab is carefully crossing the t's and dotting the 'i's on this?

amazingly, I actually think the Minelab execs really are listening to our wants/needs/complaints!

Hell, maybe there will be an update for the CTX after the EQ release. Anythings possible now.

From the very beginning they said it was upgradeable.

No, there was a direct response from a minelab rep that said it would NOT be upgrade-able.

NO I had a lady working for Minelab tell me NO to it being upgradable by USB.
Actually just looked I still had the EMAIL:

Thank you for your inquiry. At this time, the machine will not be upgradeable. This may or may not change once we get closer to the final product.

If you read the brochure toward the end it says YES it is via use port.....hopefully they stick with that..

Regardless, at Detectival Brandon and the other ML tech explained that it would be upgradeable. If you weren't watching the videos with a magnifying glass like I did, you could of missed it

We definitely want it upgradable.. The scant updates issued for the CTX resolved a couple issues. Similar thing may arise with the Equinox.

Of course I am going to be realistic and not expect anything more than updates that address issues rather than enhancements. I am not going to let Minelab fool me twice...
