from what I've read it seems like the new higher frequency coil, it looks like a standard control box, if it has a usb port (for charging) then can you use this to change the software to V4?
The blurb seems to imply its only running the gold field program, is that because nothing else is loaded in? cant imagine the box is that radically different from the normal Deus box...?
Surely they must have some way of stopping you doing this?

Nobody knows yet.


Bet if you can read Arabic you could find out.

This machine is using deus hardware and dumbed down deus software to run it. I reckon it costs half what a deus would cost with remote and no wireless headphones. Based on this if you were buying a new Deus you would be paying approx 50% of your money on the hardware and 50% for the software. Rip off ?? You decide.

Quote:"Surely they must have some way of stopping you doing this?"(loading Deus software into the Depar)
I think you can guarantee it. It's really just software, which can be easily re-configured. The coil might be programmed to be unique to Depar equipment, the control box might only recognise the Depar coil. I'm sure the control box will allow upgrades, it's one of the Deus' selling points, but they will be Depar-specific upgrades, eg. new nugget-hunting modes, or new coil compatibility .

Also, I think the white/pale colour scheme is specific for hot sunny countries, and is no doubt part of the "Depar600" re-design. White reflects sunlight, keeping the coil more stable mechanically, as well as keeping the electronics /batteries cooler. A black machine is not a good choice in equatorial climates.

Well spotted my good man and after further reading it seems the depar has indeed more settings four infact with two for customisation so let's rally around the facts and not pretend we are in the UK getting a great deal after all.
The proof will be when the two new coils arrive on these shores priced at 300+ per unit plus stems.
If this is no real issue then your not be indeed of the v4 and the new coils has you were gents

Quote:"it seems the Depar has four settings, in fact, with two for customisation"

As it has 3 operating frequency choices, it seems likely that 3 programs would be used up for that reason.
I've never done nugget prospecting, but I would've thought an all-metal non-motion mode (ie. permanent pinpoint) would be useful, probably at the lowest frequency. I'm surprised that mode isn't one of the presets.

Surely this is like buying the basic model of a car range or washing machine etc ,Xp aren't daft they wouldn't want to supply something that could ruin the market they already have , I'd be very supprised if the software can be upgraded from the gold max settings to a full version , I'd be interested in seeing the outcome though ::g

The technical specs quoted on the Depar site seem to contain errors, there's mention of the wireless headphones, for example.

Hi folks
I would just like to clear up a lot of speculation.

The DPR is very specialized machine and optimized for Gold Prospecting, , we sent some machines to be tested in Africa. The guys over there made some extensive tests in the Gold Fields and the feedback that came back was very good.
The video made was mainly for staff training over in Africa.

I have been using the DPR 600 high frequency in the UK and found it to be great fun and very usable although I must emphasise it is a specialised machine. It takes a little practice as it uses less filtering than conventional modes.

A similar product will be available in Europe in 2017 based on the same price range.

Please note this product is not a DEUS:

The DPR uses a different stem, no rubber, no adjustable armrest.

The DPR has 4 programs ALL based all on the DEUS Gold Field program, with 2 empty user program memory slots.

The DPR has a very simple menu based on the Deus GF program it has a 28 page manual, instead of a 60 page manual with the DEUS.

The DPR has no pinpoint mode.
The DPR has no expert menu.
The DPR has no multi-tone.
The DPR has no full tone.
The DPR has no notch.
The DPR has no coin mode.
The DPR has no non-motion menu.
The DPR has no user updates- the USB download will only support bug correction (if required).
The current DPR version has no wireless headphone support.
The DPR has no headphone controller.
The DPR does not support the DEUS coil with lower frequencies.
The DPR only works with the two HF coils.
The DPR only supports 3 high frequencies, not 4.
The DPR has a 2 year warranty the Deus has a 5 year warranty.

I hope this clears up a lot of questions and thank you for your support.

i can see by the removal of my previous post on this topic and that the comments on the you tube video of the DPR600 have been disabled that free speech is not allowed.

i made no assumptions on the machine, and neither did i moan about the cost or how the machine could, may or definitely work, yet my post was removed for quoting a comment on the video on you tube.

now it is possible that some of what has been said is hogwash, or is there an element of truth and now the comments on both sites has been erased, we will never know

this is surely not the way to have an open minded site that in normal circumstances welcomes replies to posts to just erase them without a reason on why you feel the need to do so.

and of course if you feel that my comments are not within the rules set out on this site, i would like to know why you have taken off my comments and not messaged me as to why you have removed this.

HH, it was me who removed your posts and also those of others who fell well short of contributing anything useful or constructive to this topic.
Links to sources that contain material we would not have on the forum will always be deleted.
I am happy to discuss the matter further via the PM system but not on here as it would be yet another distraction that the thread can do without.
Gary has posted up what appears to be a reasonable explanation and answers to the OP's questions and so further replies should now be better informed and relate to the topic title - DPR600, is it a Deus?.
This forum provides a platform for open and honest discussion, but lets not slide into making unwarranted accusations against companies.
Cheers, Liam

Going by what Gary said earlier, it wouldn't work.
