New to xlt

Just got a spectrum XLT from a goodwill for 10 bucks.It is in the case and looks like its never been used,little if any.I have an ace 250 and love it.The recharable battery pack is iffy and the regular battery pack is corroded,but I can clean it up just fine.My question is,should I sell it or learn to use it.I would like to upgrade from the 250.I figure that I could sell with accesories and take the money to invest in a newer machine,or keep it,learn it and possibile upgrade at a latter time.Only had it one day and would like to here your opinons.

Learn to use it. The XLT is a very versatile machine. You can start off using the factory programs to get used to it. You can also program in your own custom programs. Many available on the web.

Try it, you will like it.

You got a great deal on the price. Used XLT detectors go for 400 to 500 dollars. Great buy.
