Is a Deus a good Car trunk Metal Detector?

If you have a sunroof crack that heat rises it keeps my car about 10-20 degrees cooler in the sun ..

Look on eBay under tennis racket bags. The ones that fit several rackets. I like Prince brand. They are ideal and often have dividers for coils. Mine fits shaft with one coil and 2 coils in the other compartment. There’s room for short shovel and back phones (hat mtd) I added the straps to be a backpack but they come with a shoulder strap and handles. They also open in the wide direction making it simple to remove and put back in.
Thank you so much I am interested in this.
 
My ORX lives in my truck. We’ll see if it becomes a problem but I really don’t expect it to since it’s never in direct sunlight and is stored under a seat, usually with the sunroof and windows slightly open for venting. It has never been an issue for any of my other machines in spite of our 100+ heat. I just wish I could get it out to actually use it more often..

Nice detector needs a nice bag, I treat it like my guns. I would not leave a gun in a car, mostly because of thieves, here in AZ the outside temp is well above 110 in the summer usually reaching 115+F. heat damages electronics.2 zippered compartments, coils,shaft one side

Late to the conversation here but, the XP units are so small. I had a compartment above my sun visor in a truck I once owned. I could take the coil off the shaft and the remote off and place the whole unit in that compartment.


Also just get a small back pack and carry the whole unit into your work too.


I am not sure what unit you use currently but if you never used an XP detector before and you finally buy one, I bet it will become your main unit.


I have had both the ORX and Deus. If you want to save some cash get the ORX. It is just as fast and just as deep as the Deus without a few tweaks and options. ... whichever one you get I am sure you will be very happy.

I like the back pack option. I have a minelab Explorer and the Etrac. The Orx, huh. i might have to try one out. What detector did you have before the Deus.

Hey I used Fors core, mxt, Minelabs xs explorer, sovereign, tesoros, Makro racer, racer 2, Antonio, and several more. First texas f85, t2 omega,.
The new Minelabs Equinox too. When I got an ORX it was like my sites were new again. No kidding. Then I got a deus and tried then side by side with the ORX. The ORX is just as fast and just as deep but you cannot adjust or save as many settings. You can save 2 settings and 4 user programs in the ORX. The deus has 8 open slots. I sold my deus and stick with ORx. Now going to go ahead and get the deus Lite set up again too. They are so light weight, fast and deep.


With the HF coil you have 4 main frequencies with 7 offsets on each one I believe for a total of 28 user frequency to choose from. The X35 coil had 5 with 7boffwet for a total of 35 frequencies to choose from.

It is an awesome set up too.

Here is a little steel bottle cap video I did

That's a very nice detector bag & Roger on how you keep your detectors.
& I clean them both after I use them.

There are only a handful of extreme heat and if there is a heat wave either I’m not detecting , or if I plan to I’m taking the Deus Lite in its bag (which is actually a Nike baseball gear bag turned backpack ) into work where it’s climate controlled. Likewise, during the coldest part of the year my equipment is inside the house.
