Nokta just released an update for the Legend as a BETA VERSION for all end users to test.

The update includes the following advancements:

Updates Made:

  1. M3 multi frequency in PARK mode has been updated to prevent coins from being masked by aluminum foil.

  2. Bottle Cap Rejection setting has been added.

When the device is in multi frequency, select the Recovery Speed setting and press the pinpoint button. When you navigate with the right and left buttons, you will see the letters ‘’bC’’ appear on the right side of the screen. You can adjust the bC value between 1-8 using the + and – buttons. When the bC is 0, it means that it is off.

  1. Ground Suppressor setting has been added.

It is used to eliminate false ground signals in tough terrains. To access the setting, select the Recovery Speed setting and press the pinpoint button. When you navigate with the right and left buttons, you will see the letters ‘’GS’’ appear on the right side of the screen. You can adjust the GS value between 1-8 using the + and – buttons. When the GS is at 0, it means that it is off. It is recommended that you leave this setting at off position unless needed.

  1. The audio emitted as the Tone Break points are changed while in 60-Tone, has been modified with increased bass.

  2. Audio Gain setting has been activated in the Gold Field Mode.

  3. Warning tones have been added to the buttons.

The buttons will now emit a warning tone in the following cases:
a. To indicate the minimum and maximum levels of settings.
b. When an inactive setting in a specific mode trying to be activated. 
    1. The brightness of the Backlight Level 1 has been reduced.

    2. Bluetooth Chip Version will now be displayed.

    When the Bluetooth headphones are paired with the device and the Bluetooth setting is selected, press and hold the Discrimination button. The Bluetooth chip version will be displayed in the clock section. When the button is released, the clock will be displayed again.

    1. While in Automatic Ground Balance, the auto backlight will now be lit until the ground balancing is completed.

    2. The loudness of the Volume Level 1 has been reduced in PARK, FIELD and BEACH modes.

    3. A new level 9 has been added to the Iron Filter (IF) setting.

    There has been no change to the levels 1-8. Level 9 will become handy when trying to discriminate some unwanted mid-conductors such as shotgun cartridges as iron.

    1. General improvements have been implemented.  

    One you tested the Legend 1.10 Beta Version, if you come across any bugs or faults, please report them by sending an email to LGV10@noktadetectors.com by January 23, 2023.
     
    Please note that Nokta will ONLY EVALUATE BUG OR FAULT REPORTS AND NO "WISH LISTS"  at this point so they can release the final version sooner than later.

     V1.09 - Fifth Update

    Updates Made:

    1. Iron Filter and Stability settings have been added.
    When the device is working in Multi frequency, select the Recovery Speed setting and press the pinpoint button.
    Letters "IF" (Iron Filter) will appear on the right side.

    Iron Filter (IF) setting ranges between 1-8 and the default value is 8. Default value 8 is the same as the previous versions (v1.05, v1.07) Legend with no iron filter setting.
    Lower IF setting will increase the probability of ferrous targets to be classified as non-ferrous targets and vice versa.
    Stability setting (st) is the fine tuning for the IF setting.
    When the IF is set to 8, the st setting will be inactive in the Park, Field and Gold Field modes.
    When the IF is set to any value below 8, the St setting can be activated by pressing the right or left button and can be adjusted by using the + and - buttons.
    NOTE: The st setting in the beach mode is different than this new st setting!

    2. A new multi frequency (M3) has been added to PARK and FIELD modes.
    Ideal for humid, wet and/or conductive soils.
    It reduces the effect of moisture in soils which can cause falses. It also weakens the response of targets generating 10-11 IDs such as coke and aluminum foil.

    3. Tone Pitch has been added.
    In Tone Pitch, as the coil approaches the target, the audio frequency will change in proportion to the signal strength. It can be selected from the number of tones setting and is shown with a P.

    4. Audio Gain setting has been added.
    Audio Gain setting will increase the volume of weak target responses.
    In the PARK, FIELD and BEACH modes, after selecting the volume, press the pinpoint button. Letters AG will appear on the right side. You can adjust the AG using the + and – buttons between 1-6. The default value is set to 3.
    Audio Gain does NOT increase depth.

    5. Mute function has been added.
    On the main screen, press and hold the Frequency button to mute the device.
    Letters "AO" (Audio Off) will appear on the right side. You can unmute by pressing and holding the Frequency button.
    Even if muted, the device will revert back to unmute in the custom discrimination pattern (notch), ground balance and settings menus automatically.

    6. Auto sensitivity drop in the custom discrimination pattern
    When you select the custom discrimination pattern (notch), the sensitivity drops down to 5 automatically. However, if you are using the automatic notch, you may not want the sensitivity to be lowered. In this case, press the Ground Balance button once to revert back to the current sensitivity. Letters "CS" (current sensitivity) will be displayed on the right side.

    7. Hearing the audio through the speaker and the Bluetooth headphones at the same time
    When the Bluetooth setting is selected, if the Bluetooth HPs are paired, press the up button and select 2.

    8. Reverting Back to Factory Defaults
    After selecting the user profile in the settings menu, press and hold the pinpoint button until letters Fd appear on screen. Fd will disappear after 2 seconds.

    9. Discrimination Pattern is now saved.
    Default discrimination pattern for PARK, FIELD, and BEACH has been defined as “F (Ferro-off)” and as “G (Ground-off)” in the Gold Field Mode.

    10. Mineralization Indicator
    In the ground balance menu, press the discrimination button to activate the mineralization indicator. Letter GI (Ground Indicator) will appear on the right side. When you press the discrimination button again, it will revert back to Ferro Check and FC will appear.

    Ground Mineralization refers to the naturally occurring minerals in the ground that affect a metal detector’s performance. There are two main types of ground mineralization: Iron particles and salt such as saltwater beaches. This causes the ground to become conductive. Both produce false signals that mask targets.
    Left side of the mineralization bar shows iron particle mineralization and the right side shows mineralization due to salt. The right side works in multi frequency only!

    11. The selected setting in the settings menu will now blink for easier viewing.
    12. The default threshold frequency level in Park, Field and Beach modes have been changed to 10.
    13. Threshold parameters have been updated in the Park, Field and Beach modes.
    14. Audio during ground balancing has been updated.
    15. Ground balance and pinpoint function parameters have been updated.
    16. ID stability has been improved for changing ground balance values.

    Stability setting (st) is the fine tuning for the IF setting.
    When the IF is set to 8, the st setting will be inactive in the Park, Field and Gold Field modes.
    When the IF is set to any value below 8, the St setting can be activated by pressing the right or left button and can be adjusted by using the + and - buttons.
