Hello all, I know this information was recently posted elsewhere at the MDF but I have just recieved the information from Minelab so thought I would create a sticky post with direct links on the information and a ongoing thread for any future updates on the Equinox machines ::g

Direct link - MINELAB EQUINOX downloads


Direct link - MINELAB EQUINOX Software Update Instructions

Following information provided by werewhelk in the other thread but well worth adding to this pinned one.

For anyone worried about not liking the update, it can be rolled back apparently,

Although he said he had not tried it, and so far I see no indication that it might be needed, having worked in IT for many years I know a rollback option is vital.

Hi.

I have updated several machines and they all perform perfectly (and a bit better) afterwards and I've not heard of anybody else having any problems with the upgrade. I have no idea what your experience level is with the Nox, what Modes you are using or how you have it programmed and you may already have done all of this.

I would strongly suggest doing a complete factory reset to check that you haven't chosen something from the settings which has adversely affected the performance of the machine by mistake. Try it out at this stage.

Once you have reset it plug in the cable and try and update it again. If the machine has the new software already installed then it will tell you that no update is needed. If it isn't updated then do so.

You will then need to install whatever programme that you are using and see how that works. Feel free to run that programme past me on here or by PM first if you want to and I will tell you how I think that it is likely to perform and whether I can see any obvious problems with it.

Best of luck

Fred

Hi all, I did a factory reset last week- does anyone know whether I need to download the update again or whether that should survive the reset?
Many thanks
Colin

Yep, it should remain (it is effectively the 'operating system' now). You could always check by trying the update again, and it should tell you that it is already done.

I can't be absolutely sure but I think that it probably did make a difference. It certainly didn't do any harm. It will tell you if the machine has already been updated. ::g

As usual having trouble with the update. When I try to install the programme that I downloaded onto my computer, it tells me I do not have a disc in the computer.
Any ideas

You could try connecting your nox direct to the Minelab site and update strait into the machine, i had a similar problem. Worth a try. beachboy70 ::g

Having worked in IT support for nearly 40 years I am fairly confident of the problem here. In my job I found it was quite common .... good old fashioned "User Error". Sorry Nubsey.

It sounds as if you have downloaded the MUU successfully then having a problem when you try to run it.

As a double check that the download worked go to your downloads folder and check that it shows -
Minelab Update Utility 1.1.1 (3 Dec 2018) with a size of 30.1mb
(assuming you use Windows vice Mac where I believe the size should be 32.6mb)

My suspicion is that you have not connected the Nox AND TURNED IT ON before trying to run the MUU, but that should tell you to connect the detector.

Double check the instructions and try again. Then if still getting an error post some screen shots and I will have another look

FYI: I have just downloaded the current versionof the MUU and run it with no problem (it confirmed my firmware was upto date)
