GMP or Deus Lite

Post by waldo » Sat Apr 05, 2014 3:35 pm

I am thinking of upgrading to either the Golmax power V4 or the deus lite. Is there much, if any, difference between the two, program wise. Can the deus lite in GMP mode be tweaked by the headphones as much as the GMX can be with the knobs and switches. As there is not a lot of difference in price I was wondering what the benefits would be of one over the other? :-/

I had the GMP and loved it, however i updated to the Deus and i must say i like the Deus more.
You have more frequencies to play with, its lighter and cordless. You can always get the remote at a later date if price is the deciding factor.
The Deus will hold its price better as well in my opinion.

The choice might be affected by the type of detecting you do.

I might be wrong (probably am) as it's only from what I have read as I don't own either machine but the general consensus is the Dues is easier to use on pasture but the GMP is better near water.(not just the beach)

Might be worthwhile testing each machine as some people love the Deus and other don't get on with it probably the same for the GMP

I stand to be corrected and totally expect to be shot down in flames :D

Thanks for all your info guys but have decided, after a fair bit of research and back and forth, to go with the GMP and see how it goes for now. ::g
