Nokta Detectors released a beta version of firmware for the Nokta Legend Simultaneous Multi-Frequency Metal Detector. We can’t wait to see all the new updates and features that have been added.
One of the standout updates is the Bottle Cap Rejection setting, which lets users adjust the detector’s sensitivity to eliminate false signals from bottle caps. This feature is handy for those who often search in areas with a lot of litter because it can improve the detector’s accuracy.
Another helpful addition is the Ground Suppressor setting, which eliminates false ground signals in tough terrains. This is especially useful for those who frequently search in challenging environments because it can improve the detector’s accuracy in these conditions.
Nokta also improved the audio emitted when changing Tone Break points by adding increased bass to make it easier to distinguish between different signals. Adding warning tones to the buttons is also a great feature because it helps users avoid making accidental changes to settings or activating inactive settings.
Another subtle but useful update is the ability to display the Bluetooth chip version when the Bluetooth headphones are paired with the device. This can be helpful for users who want to ensure they have the most up-to-date version of the chip installed.
With this firmware update, it’s clear that Nokta is continuing to innovate and improve their already excellent Nokta Legend Metal Detector. Adding new features and improvements to existing ones will surely be appreciated by Nokta Legend users. We can’t wait to see what else Nokta Detectors has in store for the future. If you’re a Nokta Legend user, be sure to check out the beta firmware and see how it enhances your metal detecting experience.

If you decide to update your metal detector with this beta firmware, consider the potential risks involved. If you’re comfortable with using beta software and are willing to accept any potential issues that may arise, then you can go ahead and update your metal detector.
On the other hand, if you prefer to wait for the final release, it’s a good idea to hold off on updating until a couple of weeks have passed. This will give Nokta time to iron out any issues with the firmware and release a more stable version.
