I see that the Ace 250 has been discontinued. Why ? I have one and it works great
Question by: Richard Irvin on Apr 1, 2018, 8:42 AM Link
The ACE 250 was discontinued, and replaced by the ACE 300. There is not much of a difference between the two, but the construction is a bit more stable, and the circuitry inside has been updated. Not sure why Garrett did what they did, but you can always contact them directly.
