Hi Debbie;
I have a few questions as I have had from many friends or Club is a major user of Minelabs with over 30 CTX users in our club. I know this is a new product and if you do not have answers I understand.

1. Do we have a Equinox release date yet?
Initial target is prior to Christmas, however, demand has been crazy, so it will take us a bit to fulfill what has already been placed on order

2. Do we know if it will have a clock in the corner? (weird but, a true question - lol)
no

3. Can it be remotely updated via the web or usb interface?
no

4. Can the batteries be changed out by the user or is it built in?
I have been told that it will need to be sent into service, however, that could change

5. Is their a PDF manual available that we may download to help us understand more?
Manual will be available as we get closer to launch

6. Who is taking the repairs for Minelab now that Kellyco announced they are no longer doing so?
We have a new ASC, Detector Center out of PA. They are already turning machines out in about 10days, and it will continue to get better than that.

Many thanks for the answers in advance and or pointing us to someone who has the answers. Let me know if you have further questions. More info will be released shortly.



These are the hunts of the Minelab CTX-3030. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new woods, to seek out new parks and new beaches, to boldly detect where no one has hunted before.

The only question that can be answered at this point is your last question, the new repair center is in PA. That's where my CTX was sent to last month. As far as having answers to your other question, no one but Minelab knows and they are being very tight lipped about info at this point. Everyone is chomping at the bit for info just like you.

OK, THATS how you should have posted in the first place. The way you posted it was confusing because it seemed you were asking questions but also answering your own questions

Ok I understand. I will try to be more specific. That is how the email came back to me and I did not want to post Debbie's response to me too differently than she sent it.
She had the answers that I saw a few folks were asking and decided she was best to ask. I hate circling around when the questions are easy enough to get answers to.
Too many folks create long winded post with a lot of unqualified responses. I like simple and qualified answers.
