    Thank You. I do miss my old MXT and hope the MX Sport is it’s lighter water proof son..Lol.

    I have read good reviews on the MX Sport. I always liked the build and quality of White’s detectors. I found my first gold coin with a White’s XLT years back. Also the M-6 is quite the detector in its own right.

    All The Best,

    My Whites pinpointer drives my MXS crazy if it gets within 2 feet of the coil.

    Try offsetting the frequency. That will clear it up.

    Freq Offset may work as Rod said. You can also point the coil away from the pinpointer, since the TRX field is strongest at the tip. Easiest is just to keep distance between 'em.
    If there's anything I hate worse than diggin' pulltabs, its missin' a gold ring.

    Hi My Fellow TH'ers
    Well, I tried all the suggestions that Whites Customer Service gave me and still not happy with how my MX-Sport was operating so it is on it's way back to Sweethome for a fix or replacement. It was working alright on dry sand but it was going nuts on wet sand or in the water. I tried both of my coils and both gave the same response. Steve at Whites customer service suggested to send it in for a warranty fix. I was having the issues of the icons jumping all over. I have no problems waiting on customer service to take care of my detector. ;-)
