With 4.1 I keep losing the coil.....now on v5.2.803 i believe (it does soon go out from first switch on quick ) seems to have cured that .... had a darkened oblong on the screen which must of happened on v5.2 update as id never had it happen before in the various up dates id done from v3.1 upwards , turned out to be the contrast can get altered when updated ( mate told me hed seen it on xp skill school )
Performance which I havnt really noticed any difference as id tended u use it as the back up detector.....but last 2 outings I took it out and got 3 hammies ...might of got more with the other detector ???. but might just of been luck ? ::g Think Liam is still on v3.1 ??

I tried V5.2 but went back to V4.1 as it suited the older coils better for me. ::g

5.2 is fine for me, had issues with MI6 connection on previous, only have the original black 9" inch coil, good luck.

Evening All,
I have only had the deus (lite) for a year having upgraded from my original Ace 250 and have nothing like the experience most other members have on here ( though I almost stopped working for 8 months as all I wanted to do was detect so I have put a few hours in!!)
So for what its worth, I, like most deus owners, was more than happy with 4.1; an excellent option which gave excellent and consistent, beautiful tones and feedback on all sorts of diggable stuff. 5.2 in comparison was much less familiar and comfortable but I spoke to a few people who know their onions and I persisted and persisted and now I understand the language I wouldn't go back to 4.1. There are things I miss, for example, you NEVER lost a signal, either once a target dislodged itself and still in the hole or a small target the wrong side of a heavy clod out of the hole with 4.1 but the nice iffy squeaks and tiny, tantalising wispy strains are, in my opinion, now even more musical to the ears with 5.2 than they were with 4.1.
We don't generally like change, and we don't like to think we might be missing something by using unfamiliar new tech but i think once you get used to it you won't look back - put it his way, I've found some really nice ( sometimes tiny bits and pieces) often at a good depth so am no longer feeling I'm missing anything and that new found confidence goes a long way in accepting the new!

I use 4.1 and seem to be lucky quite often. ::g

Happy Hunting,

I updated from 4.0 to 4.1 and hated it. I lost depth and sensitivity on 4.1 so rolled it back to 4.0 and all was good again. I've since updated to 5.2 and think it's the best programme for my Deus. I get a bit more depth and are picking up targets that I could'nt previously. So for me 5.2 works but I find it weird that some programmes work for some and not others because each successive update theoretically should be an improvement.

And don't forget, when you are a lite user, version 5.2 gives you much more options to adjust compared to the older software.
(extra: reactivity, tx power, tracking, frequency shift,iron volume and audio overload)

Yes, 5.2 is definitely the way to go. Didn’t like the upgrade from V4 to V4.1 - there was significant loss of depth on certain programs. V5.2 has resolved that - I find V5.2 works well with the X35 coil and it has addressed stability problems. Loving the Deus at the moment on this version.

The only problem being for us Lite users is that we cant upgrade unless we know someone with a control box who can help us. This surely is a major weakness with the Deus (or is it simply the sales people trying to get us to part with another 500-600GBP?? ) B|
