With the release of V5.2 in 2018 and new accessories for the Deus as well as introduction of the ORX, we have revised the content of the Bootcamp to incorporate the changes and provide custom programs that will unleash the full power of the ORX & Deus with the upgrades including the software and High Frequency (HF) coils.  The format of the Bootcamp has also been modified to provide more in-field time demonstrating how slight changes can make huge differences in the response to the type of targets you are looking for.

With more than 300 attendees having experienced the XP Deus Bootcamp that are currently reaping the rewards in the field, the new format will make it even more of a "must-attend"!

The Deus is XP's flagship detector offering features and performance not found on any other detector - lightweight, totally wireless, extremely flexible and upgradeable - but unlocking all of what it is capable of can take time.  The ORX offers exceptional performance for the money.  Well, that learning curve has just been eliminated!


We're excited to announce that Andy Sabisch, well-known treasure hunter and veteran XP Deus user, is conducting a factory-authorized Bootcamp Training Course designed to allow you to understand all of the features on the Deus & ORX and maximize its performance under any condition and for any application you might come across.  Yes it is small and compact, lightweight and extremely simple looking but it is extremely powerful and feature rich.


The Bootcamp will cover everything listed below in a classroom setting followed by an infield session that will allow you to put what was covered into practice and see how slight adjustments can make a huge difference in performance.  Most importantly, you will understand WHY you made the change and HOW to determine what the optimal setting are for YOUR area and the type of targets YOU are searching for rather than relying on settings provided by someone 1,000 miles away where conditions are likely quite different.




  • Setup Tips - You would be surprised how many times this causes issues
  • What every function / feature does - a solid foundation makes all  the rest make perfect sense
  • When to make adjustments and how make them correctly . . . sequence is everything!
  • Creating and modifying programs
  • How to get maximum depth on a wide range of targets
  • Target Identification - audio & visual tips & tricks
  • How to hunt the trashy areas that still hold treasure
  • Optimal settings and search techniques for all forms of treasure hunting -coins, relics, jewelry and electronic prospecting
  • How to shallow water hunt with the Deus
  • Pinpoint techniques to save recovery time
  • Accessories that can give you an additional edge
  • Software upgrade tips to eliminate surprises
  • Inside look at the new ORX
  • Ask your questions to eliminate any confusion

And More . . . The Agenda is Flexible and Will Include What You Are Interested In!


A feature that was added to the 2019 Bootcamps and has been enhanced in the 2020 sessions are videos showing what those marginal signals sound and look like to help you unlock the full potential of your detector as well as tips for maximizing performance in the field.  We will have short clips embedded in the classroom portion that show how slight adjustments can make a huge difference in what you bring home at the end of the day.  They say a picture is worth 1,000 words and a video can be priceless once you see what the signals that 99.9% of other hunters pass over and leave behind.  We listened to feedback and made a change that will take the instruction to a whole new level in terms of what attendees will leave with at the end of the day!

Another benefit for those attending the Bootcamp that has been well received from those that attended previous sessions which will be carried over to 2020 is the ability to talk about the Deus with Alain Loubet - founder of XP - during a video conference session at the start of the day.  If you have any specific questions, here's the opportunity to ask the designer himself - eliminate the rumors that are out there.  He might just discuss some of the new pieces of equipment under development as well.  It is a great start to the day and is unique in that the owner of the company is willing to take time out of his schedule to connect with us halfway around the world.  The picture here is from one of the Bootcamps where Alain connected with us from a beach in Southern France testing the new coil.

The Bootcamp will show you how to get the most out of your Deus!


The agenda has been designed to be both enjoyable and informative.  It is a day intended to get you comfortable with all aspects of the Deus and confident in its use.  During the in-field portion, there will be both planted targets in a test garden allowing you to see how slight adjustments can make a big difference in terms of what you bring home as well as natural targets that will test your skills as you seek them out.  We will have a wide assortment of targets available so that you can see how each responds and then use them to create custom patterns for the type of hunting you do.  Hands-on experience is priceless in putting what you've learned into practice.  When you get home, you will KNOW how to put your Deus to use and most importantly, UNDERSTAND what it is telling you.


Some of the additional benefits received from attending

The XP Deus Bootcamp include:



  • Discounted signed copy of Andy Sabisch's The XP Deus Handbook . . . this is a "must-have" reference guide!
  • An XP "goodie bag"
  • A Travel Credit Voucher good towards the purchase of an XP Deus or Deus accessories  (call for more details)
  • Direct access to the instructors when you have questions on your XP Deus . . . call on your cell phone from the field and get real-time, technically accurate information
  • Handouts that will help you get more out of your Deus after you leave the Bootcamp


If you do not have a Deus yet and are considering purchasing one, attending the Bootcamp is the perfect opportunity to make an informed decision and start out knowing how to use the Deus.  There will be demo units available at the Bootcamp if you do not have one yet . . . let us know so we will have enough units available.


NOTE: The In-field training session will include a competition hunt of sorts in that there will be vintage coins, relics and tokens buried throughout the site good for prizes, accessories and discounts..


Bootcamps are typically held on a Saturday with the classroom portion kicking off bright and early but don't worry, there will be plenty of coffee and the content is sure to keep you energized until we hit the field after lunch.   Lunch will be provided before leaving the hotel area.  The in-field session will let you put what you learned into practice and with the instructors handy, you can have any questions answered on the spot.  There will be test areas setup where you can see how slight changes in settings can and will make a big difference in performance.  Once you've spent some time in the test area, see how you do on natural targets . . . . there will be real targets to seek out as well as prize tokens, old coins, Civil War relics and more to test your skill before you call it a day.

All of the locations have been selected to be "family friendly" so feel free to bring the family along and make it a mini vacation.  Once you have reserved your space in the session you want to attend, we will send you a package of activities that they might be interested in while you are at the Bootcamp.

But the Bootcamp does not end there . . . attendees receive a periodic newsletter that will pass along tips, techniques, information on new products and finds made by fellow attendees to keep you informed and motivated.  We also provide unlimited phone or E-mail support to answer any questions that might arise and have walked people through settings while they were in the field.  Think of the Bootcamp as being a continuous learning experience!
