Newb, i should get mine tomorrow (according to Fed Ex tracking). So i would appreciate any tips for setting this machine to hunt on saltwater beach. I will mostly be hunting in the sand to start (until i can get waterproof headphones and long sand scoop) then i will head into the ocean. Thanks for any help/tips.

Dry sand is challenging with the Equinox. The trash is very frustrating. Read how to set up a user profile with a single frequency to tell bottle caps. The wet sand use stock beach one program. Volume and threshold to your preference. This is where the Equinox shines. A beach scoop is just as important as the detector. Do yourself a favor and get a good one. If you are bending over while beach hunting you are doing something wrong. Fill your holes and good luck.

As said above use Beach 1 in the sand and when you get a good hit, hit the all metal button and drag back toward you if you hear a good sound and then a low tone it is a bottle cap.
