GPX5000 hire?

Post by Guest on Sun 21 Jul 2013, 6:58 pm

Hi, I'm new to the forum and to WA prospecting.
I'm planning a short trip before the end of the year.

I have a Whites GM3 but am not sure that this is up to the job.
Any suggestions on best place to hire a Minelab GPX5000 or similar in or around Perth? 1-2 weeks
Also suggestions or tips for UHF, GPS?

Many thanks
Scot

Reeds have them for hire. I've hired form them and they are very helpful and decently priced.

GPS - I run a Garmin Oregon 550. Pretty happy with it and I'm able to load the tenement boundary's on it easily. Better yet its also water proof which means its also dust proof.

Thanks for hire suggestions - I have visited the websites for both Reeds and Prospectors Patch and will take your advice to book early.

I currently have a chance to buy a pair of Garmin Rino 120s - the wireless and GPS seems a good combination but they look like horribly antiquated technology and I also understand that the eat batteries!

The rhino 120 are antiquated. However I have 3 Garmin Rhino 650 and they are great, 5 watt CB radio and GPS touch screen etc would not detect with out them.
