Glad to see you got iut and found some keepers. Sounds like Monte is still learning the new vanquish
I'll let you in on a little secret .... Monte never stops learning or trying to learn something new or different. Always trying to learn more of the strengths and weaknesses and master them as best I can.

I am generally not all that interested in the highest-dollar or high-tech detectors, and also very seldom interested in anything that would be a 'beginners-level' or 'entry-level' as most manufacturers make things. One exception is the Nokta / Makro Simplex +. far more detector than most folks would imagine.

And in the 'cost-cutting' and 'feature-limited' category, I have NO interest in the Minelab Vanquish 340 and very little in the 440. The Vanquish 540 however, especially the Pro Pack that comes with two excellent search coils and the comfortable and nice audio quality ML-80 headphones, is a serious 'great deal' bargain-priced detector.

Matter-of-fact, this coming week my 'learning' goal is to see if I can get the Equinox 800 set-up to work as close to what the V-540 does. Then, if successful, I will start working on any program settings that might provide me with a detector that can out-perform the Vanquish 540 in a variety of hunting environments with it in a good 'general purpose' program and not some tricky set-up. It might not be all that easy, and if anyone hasn't hunted with the V-540, then they don't know what I mean.
