Just think what it would mean if they had a little sd card slot or an internal note pad the you could save what you dug up at what depth and what the readings were.
You could list them in dimes, pennies, etc etc.
I think it would be a giant seller

I think Minelab was in the mind of making an affordable detector..
Not loading it up with expensive add-ons that are just for convenience....... Plus the time involved..dig a target insert info, dig a target insert info...
Not all of us record every event. It's a relaxing hobby for us.

Nothing id really want either..... if they ever get a web site up maybe there will be a log. Im sure the is an app for it on you phone. Guess im lazy.... but then I dig a lot of targets in 7 hours plus.

CTX has that feature and I bet 99.9% of users have NEVER used it.

And there's always a pencil and paper - and they don't eat up batteries.



The real treasure is in the marketing.

Yep! Be a proud .1 percenter! I used mine often to log finds in a open field hunts so see concentrations and trends.

no just one button-hit is once and it will be a penny twice a nickel etc etc when you come to the coin click y then the next will be inches by 2 increments click y then numbers then save.
Should be easy.

Not trying to be mean but my guess is if you want this then you are a millennial

Right on! Another way...and it has worked for ME in all my years of relic hunting...wait for it ...is actual memory! May not work for everyone, but for ME, I can go to ANY of my relic spots and tell you what was found...depth..targets found. If one needs GPS, memory cards, logging finds, etc., I say good luck and am glad it works for you. I'm old school and don't feel the need, although a GPS would come in handy when going to new, uncharted spots so as to not get lost! I like to keep hunting simple, and concentrate on finding and digging targets. I enjoy trying out these new fangled detectors though! From a Nautilus to the Equinox 600!

What makes you think so? One of the most common complaint is the shifting VDI of targets in the ground. Double the scale will only double the VDI "wobble", no give you more refined information

Yep!-----Do some side by side tests on actual "in the wild" targets (undug targets/coins) with the Equinox and your other detectors and you will see what we are talking about flintstone.-----The Equinox is pretty accurate as it is with the # system it presently has.

I really dont understand this obsession that so many people have for turning something new into something old, or at least to something "else". The Equinox (600 for this discussion) is a GAME CHANGER. Its a $600 detector that equals my CTX for silver, and rivals anything I have ever owned in 35+ years for nailing deep (and extremely tiny) gold. Its at least as fast as the DEUS. On top of that, its waterproof design is better than the CTX's . It's 6 detectors in a single package. It's so light weight that it makes everything feel like swinging a hammer. ITS $600!!! We have NEVER NEVER NEVER had this much power, speed and flexibility such a tiny price. Why are people in such a hurry to change it? I guarantee you havent even come close to mastering it as it is, but you want to change it.

If you arent happy with the EQX, sell it, or don't buy it in the first place. Go find your dream detector and buy THAT. Me? I'll be out here continuing to hunt and continuing to pull deep silver and more nickels and gold than I ever have in 35 years.
