Simultaneous Multi-Frequency
A few detectors on the market claim to be multi-frequency, but these simply switch different between single frequencies, operating on just one at any given time. The Equinox is the first detector to offer Multi-IQ, true simultaneous multi-frequency detecting. The best of all worlds with low frequencies picking up large, deep targets and high frequencies sensitive to small objects, all in a single pass of the coil. Plus you have the wide range of single frequency settings for more specific needs.
8 Custom Search Profiles
Save your two favorite settings profiles for each of the four search modes.
Waterproof Design
Waterproof for up to 3 meters, the Equinox is ideal for detecting in rivers, lakes and surf, or snorkeling in shallows.
Fast & Accurate Target ID
