The MXT Edge - MXT / MXT Pro Comparison

          Many have asked how applicable the book, The MXT Edge, is to the newer MXT Pro metal detector. One of the major changes that were made to the MXT Pro is to allow the selection of different audio options in a way that doesn't use the trigger switch. Also, the MXT Pro replaces the MXT's Coin & Jewelry mode's "Pulltab Notch" option with a seven tone Tone ID option, and adds a backlight. This table highlights how close in operation the MXT and MXT Pro are.
