Well it’s no secret that the new CTX 3030 is packed with new features, which required significant input from Minelab’s talented team of engineers, designers and field testers during the development phase. Minelab’s team of mechanical engineers were also kept particularly busy. They had the task of building a detector that is robust, waterproof, ergonomic, and at the same time easy to assemble. And in the Minelab tradition, all the advanced features and options don’t get in the way of the CTX 3030 being one of easiest detectors to set up and start using.
In the Getting Started video below, you will see the difference between the two model variants: the Standard and Starter Pack, and I’ll unpack the detector and identify all the parts. Assembling the CTX 3030 is a breeze and the video shows you just how simple it is to put together and charge the supplied Li-Ion battery. Then I’ll give you a quick overview of the control panel, and show you how the buttons and functions have been laid out to make the detector intuitive and easy to use.
Thanks for your interest in the new CTX 3030 metal detector.
All information on this new detector will be release on 18 May including the Instruction Manual and the XChange 2 PC application (see the 11 May Minelab news story). Also, for more information keep an eye out for new videos and regular blog posts on Treasure Talk.
Please for comparative tests for depth with E-TRAC ,because too it is expensive for underwater E-TRAC
