  3. An in Depth Guide to The XP Deus 4.1 Software Update

    Fellow Deus users, my name is David and I am an avid Deus user.  I have several hours on the detector model and have run versions 2.0, 3.0, 3.1. 3.2, 4.0 and the latest version 4.1.

    What can version 4.1 do for you?

    First of all version 4.1 is NOT a bells and whistle update.  Granted the update seems did improve performance associated with use of the MI-6 pinpointer, V4.1 does offer additional performance in the field.  The following data compiled from use of using the 9" LF and 11" LF coils.

    I have been testing, comparing and detecting using both versions 4.0 and 4.1 on 2 different Deus setups.

    Folks reading the new Deus 4.1 manual will notice ground tracking has been changed, the way it works based on a user's soil mineralization and also depends on this new setting that Version 4.1 brings called ground sensitivity.

    Well, granted using version 4.1 and using tracking ground balance, Deus on average will run quieter.  But folks, qui

    You can view the complete setup and instalation instructions on how to update your headphones, remote control and coil software over at the XP deus website, it's important to make sure all of your devices are fully charged before beginning the update!

    Here's a quick overview of the changelog:

    The Radio connection between MI-6 and DEUS is now more reliable and faster.

    New EXPERT Mode : GROUND SENSITIVITY

    New menu addition "Ground Sensitivity" in GB > EXPERT. This new setting makes it possible to adjust the machines ability to track soils according to their intensity. This makes it possible to avoid tracking on soils with a low mineralisation.

    • GROUND SENS low (1 to 5): Slightly mineralized soils are ignored and the DEUS does not track and will not display ground values, the Deus will default to the recommended level.

    • GROUND SENS high (6 to 10):

  6. A Customers Metal Detecting Find of a Lifetime!

    Special thanks to Justin for sending in this story and pics of his once in a lifetime find!

    Back in February, I purchased a brand-new Garrett AT Pro from Big Boys Hobbies, and it proved to be the best machine I have ever used. In October, I found something with it that made my year… A cache of rings!

    My buddy and I were hunting for Civil War relics on a property that was part of a large Civil War camp. There was also a house on this lot up until about 5 years ago, so we found a lot of non-Civil War related stuff as well. It became a fall back spot for when we just wanted to get out for a quick hunt. On one hunt, I found something completely unexpected. I got a strong, high 80s signal on the AT Pro. I dug down, and pulled a dirty but very heavy wallet out of the ground. Thinking it was full of change, I called my hunting buddy over to take a look. The zipper was corroded and seized, so I took my digging tool and cut it open. Staring back at me w
