We're at Paddys Range near Maryborough Vic and I'm using my GPX5000 with a 15" NF Evolution coil.

Lean pickings so far - plenty of shells, nails, junk etc.

Hopefully someone can confirm whether these settings are ok for this area with the 15" NF Evolution coil. I'm using headphones and swinging low and slow - about 3 to 4 secs from one side to the other.

Volume limit = 12
GB type = general
Special = fine gold
Manual tune - around the 106 mark

Motion = very slow
Rx gain = 9
Audio type = deep
Audio tone = 62
Stabilizer = 8
Signal peak = 19
Target volume = 8
Response = normal
Tracking speed = medium
Iron reject = off

regards
John

Hi john



the settings that you put up are nearly the same as mine the only thing I do with the new coils
is run the gain 2-3 higher the stabilizer 2-3 lower and I also run audio in normal

I do alright with my machine set like that im sure people have better settings but you are on the right track

low and slow
good luck out there

Hi John
As your using a 15" your targeting deeper ground.Generally a lower tone is used for deep searching,we use 35 and around 50-55 for shallow ground small coils.You have to tailor this to your own hearing sensitivity.Also Audio normal would be preferred for quieter operation.With fine gold you don't need audio boost/deep unless you encounter a specific need.
The rest seems good you should have no issues.You can run Rx as low as 8 and Stab 6 on larger coils without any real loss in sensitivity on the deeper ones.

Thank you for the replies - very helpful and much appreciated.


I have the settings listed above on the 'Deep' search mode position on the front panel.

On the 'General' position I've got the factory presets for Patch.

And on the 'Custom' position I've got the factory presets for Pinpoint.

Would the suggested changes to Audio Type and Audio Tone apply to Patch and Pinpoint as well, or are the FP's the best option?

regards
John
