Any idea on a timeframe for the next top of the range detector might be released? I'm considering buying a 5000 later in the year and would be really pissed if the 5500 came out 3 months later....

Discussions with a dealer last weekend suggested, based on nothing but his gut feel, that we could see a new model in the next 12 - 18 months.
The 5000 has been around for quite a while and all technology has moved substantially in that time.
If the SDC takes off and takes sales from the 5000 they may bring a new model forward a bit.
Tell tale sign will be when you see more freebies thrown in with it rather than a big price reduction.
Then again what would I know.......

I imagine a price reduction will come after the release of the next model to clear stock. But I think your right about the freebies.

With the release of the SDC2300 one must ask what they are working on now...

Chriso, Digginerup & Jag are right on this one.We are all hoping for the sooner,rather than latter,but not at the cost of completely missing out on prospecting today.

Im happy with my 4500, I read through all the Codan news/shareholder info and it says that work on the next generation of gold detectors is well underway.
Next generation could mean next model but probably means a radical departure from current design and technology.

I get the impression that any new top line  gold detector release will be at least 12 months away from today as a minimum.

Codan reports also say that they ramped up production of 5000's and then the African gold rushes stopped leaving them very overstocked. (their turnover of detectors fell by up to 80%.) They say they will responsibly convert this excess stock into cash.

Trick is to just keep detecting

I do hope you're right in saying "a radical departure from current design technology" Tributer,cause a 10% jump from the GPX 5000,aint going to save us. Sad

It has to be a 100% jump from a 3000 to a 6000 to make me change. T14 T14 T14

Info should be released on the 18th or 19th of December, depending on which country you are in.

I hear that the new one has a gravity sensor that can detect gravitational changes caused by large nuggets. and sounds an AHOOOOGAHHH horn when a goodun is detected. Very Happy
