Quest Metal Detectors has just released a firmware update for the Q30 & Q60.
The main issue that has been fixed was for situations where you would receive a good steady signal but nothing would be displayed on the screen. This has now been remedied and you should see a fairly reliable visual indication of the target strength and depth on the display.
Another thing to be updated is the QuestGo app. For some time now this has had reduced functionality. Mainly in that, you could not successfully upload your finds to the app. This has also now been fixed and so the app becomes very useful once again.
Details of the firmware update and how to apply it to your machine are below. These instructions are direct from Quest.
You can download and upgrade the detectors firmware thru your smartphones. In this upgrading, we optimized the target ID reading issue for deep targets. In the recent version the target ID may not be displayed even the audio signal is clear. You may update the firmware via QuestGo app, and we hope the new firmware will bring you much better hunting experience. We have also fixed the APP’s community pictures display issue. Below are the guidelines for the firmware updating.
