My "update" for my original 9ins coil and V2 set up was to charge it all up and then place it on the table and speak nicely to it, saying "Now, all your offspring are running around with new fancy tweaks and shiny bits and maybe findings things a bit better, can YOU do a little better yourself and show these youngsters what you can really do?" =))
Deus blinked in agreement, blinked a lot in fact, so lets see what happens tomorrow morning!

If you update to v4 and using old style coils probably worth taking an emergency charger if your on a long hunt.
Battery life has been reduced dramatically I'd say to about 12 hours.


Hi TF, just wondered if you have been using the Deep programme as the power is 3 and XP suggest battery life will be 11 hours compared to 19/20 hours with the power at 2.

Have been reading the V4 manual whilst waiting for my coils to charge up :D

Can only say that ive been using the beta version for a week or so on land that i have done for last 6 years. Using a another manufacturers make 2 models ;) Then long came the Deus and opened up more finds... then after nearly a year using it an update came along and hey ho a roman die pops up using a new program..... luck or what or was it the update :-/ who knows but technology is moving fast and more and more finds are coming to light.

The update will allow you to Tina a turner back in time to v2 if you wish so all is not lost but more to gain if you wish to update :D .

I may have had the Deus only a year but have spent many hours each week using it and have been "Lucky" ...

Land done before feels like new land now ::g

I used to use a lazer B3 and found loads of stuff with it , including a Saxon gold pendant that was on a small field that was being heavily detected by dues and ctx users that must have walked over it ( detecting badly relying on technology ) , I changed to the deus after an injury and after gaining my own permission i found nothing in the first year. A deep plough later then bingo ! Finds a plenty ::g
I'd like to think it's all down to technology but personally I put finds down to good old luck and detecting techniques ::g

Just seen on another forum that the update had the wrong discrimination number entered for program 9 hot program. It was programmed with a discrimination of 6.4 but should have been -6.4.
This was fixed yesterday so just check you have -6.4 and not 6.4 for the hot program.
If yours shows 6.4 just download again and re install.
When correct it will show 6.4 with a dot in front of the 6

Used mine today with version 4 hated it was so stable on 3.2, but was so chattery even on GM power an Deus Fast tried different settings no matter what I tried made no difference so an early day, back home and reverted to 3.2, I'm not getting HF coil or new pointer as got three already so will just stick with 3.2

hmmm just done the update and the display on the WS5's is still stuck on UP. I cannot even turn them off ! Ideas anyone
Cheers !
John
p.s. I have tried updating twice and no response with the WS5's. And its the same with the WS4's..
The controller shows V4.0 on display
And an hour later the WS5's are showing 88 info and flashing info but still unable to turn off. Bizarre !
I hope no one asks me to hold down both buttons for 5 seconds ok ;)

* just to go over the procedure I followed. I charged up all devices fully. I updated the controller first with both WS5 and WS4 powered off. I then updated the coils. I then updated the WS5 first. And when UP showed that obviously indicated they were updating. I was then unable to power off the WS5's ok. I moved the WS5's out of range and then updated the WS4's. The same thing happened as with the WS5'. I have since turned off the controller and disconnected the cable. Both sets of phones have the 88's showing and flashing. As before, when UP was showing, I am unable to turn either off. I have connected the normal charging cables to both phones but no effect. I even reinstalled v3.2 hoping that might rectify the phones problem but no joy. Help !

UPDATE: Nigel at Regtons is resolving this. I have now successfully updated the WS4;s but the WS5's still present a problem for now.

I still prefer the original version 2,have it installed on both my machines and they never miss a beat,just personal choice of course,still producing the finds the same as when i tried 3.2 for a while,but the audio of v2 is in my opinion slightly more analogue than the digital i feel that is on 3,2 and i would think v4 as well.

Although i do own and use the controllers on both machines i keep the controller in my pocket or even leave it in the car as i use it solely as a audio machine,i never make a sole decision on if i dig a target from what the screen tells me,the audio is far more reliable and also still reliable at greater depth than what the screen tells you.
Deus and Nexus MP only 2 machines i really use these days.

Also use some site specific machines TDI Pro c/w 20'' Mono,Nexus SE dual 9'' coil,Fisher TW-5 twin box.

Beats numbers but you do have a numeric in the top left of the screen and it bounces ;)

The XY screen gives you a more visible prospective id. And a more accurate id ... ;)

A bumping number is like a roulette wheel... the XY is dig or die look for the "flat liner"... its a digger :D
