I like options.

As i mentioned earlier, one of my dislikes about the equinox series is that they aren't repairable from the standpoint of sending in the unit and having a screen replaced. The control unit is sealed, with exception of the battery compartment, and that capped opening is sealed with an o-ring so the rechargeable battery can be removed and replaced as needed.

My thought was that IF my 800 failed from water or just plain old electronics failure, or an accident or whatever, AFTER the warranty expired (my 3 year warrant expired back in March) I was basically going to have to cough up the price of a new 800 to replace it. Not thrilled about this. I was looking for possible replacements and thus watching to see how this new Legend will do.

Well, I'm told that thought is incorrect. I'm told Minelab will replace the Main control POD of an 800 after the expired warranty period for $350, which includes a NEW 3 year warranty for it. I actually breathed a sigh of relief. This is comforting to me.

So my thoughts of looking for a replacement should my 800 fail can be tossed. I can sit back and relax and just watch and see how these latest (Legend and Deus 2) Simultaneous Multi-Frequency detectors perform once they arrive and make their way into the detecting world.

Comparisons can be 'interesting'.

Hit the brakes, turned around, going the right way now.
