Initial experiences MI-6 pointer with elliptical HF coil

I have not used my MI-6 pinpointer very much at all since receiving.

I am so accustomed to my Garret Propointer it is hard for me to try and get used to a new pinpointer and a new detector coil (HF elliptical) at the same time.

Anyway today I used the MI-6 this morning on a 1.5 hour hunt.

Tonally I like the pointer, and I like the pulse option tone wise and love how the pointer ratchets tone as the points nears metal.

Now the bad.

This pointer has problems when used with elliptical HF coil.

I witnessed many times coil loss when turning pointer off, would have long delay to get coil linked.

I even had the screen freeze up on remote when turning pinpointer off a few times, but with time (way to long IMO) the detect screen would finally appear.

I had after turning pointer off, the detect screen as well as the coil linking (coil freq) shown in screen and didn't get a no coil warning,, but the detector had no audio whatsoever,,even sweeping my shovel 0 disc full tones,,,again though after long delay the audio would start being provided.

Xp needs to get this fixed with update.

A real pain.

And if a person isn't careful, it is possible to after turning pointer off,,to sweep right over a find and get nothing tonally.

I have read where some users of pointer say the pointer works as advertised using LF coils.

I can't say, maybe with some time, I will get out all of my Deus coils and do some testing.

I've had the same experience using the MI-6 pinpointer with the HF nine inch round coil. I'm told there is a fix when the 4.1 update is released. And, like you, I hope it's soon.

I quit using the MI6 for all those reasons. Too much of a PITA.

Thanks for the insight. I just received my eliptical and noticed slow response time when changing frequencies which is already a problem with the MI-6. Will probably stay with the carrot stick till hopefully V4.1 addresses this problem.
