Are you hearing everything you swing over?

July 26, 2010 10:22am

Are you hearing everything you swing over? You wouldn’t know if you weren’t would you? Do you know that it is not just volume that assures you are hearing signals?

A very strong but simple reminder is that you cannot find what you cannot hear!

One of the most unexploited features of Minelab gold detectors is the tone adjustment.
Proper use of the tone adjustment will allow you to custom tune your detector to your personal hearing. And more importantly, it is simple to do.

GPX-4500 for Coin & Treasure use

July 19, 2010 09:01am

Have you ever given any thought to using your GPX-4500 for the pursuit of valuable gold and silver coins and other treasures?

One doesn’t have to reserve the GPX-4500 just for gold prospecting! It is a fine general purpose coin machine as well!

There are plenty of valuable single and caches of coins out there to find and the GPX-4500 is perfectly suited to the job e.g. ghost town detecting, cache hunting in rocky mountainous regions of the deserts searching for “Wild West” stage coach and bank robbery caches, treasures deposited in Europe during the two world wars and in the former ‘Iron Curtain’ regions of the former USSR.

In my travels, talking to Minelab GPX users I have encountered few people who make much use of the mode switch. When we first designed the GPX-4000, after much discussion we put a 'Mode' switch on the front panel. Our intent with this switch was to try and let operators do one of three things with this new switch.

1. New users could easily change the character of the detector before learning the finer points of the settings in the menus on the LCD. This is a bit like using the dial on the top of your digital camera to change between Sports, Portrait and Night modes...
