  1. Check out this week's Treasure Talk as Nenad Lonic details everything you need to know about owning and operating the Minelab GPZ 7000 19 coil. He covers ergonomics, swing techniques, field settings and managing different soil types. http://www.minelab.com/go-minelabbing/treasure-talk/in-the-field-with-the-gpz-19-coil
  2. opinions welcome regarding the "best" coil-cover for the 19 inch. I don't like the stock cover-but, that was a forgone conclusion.. I am not sure of the choices or durability of the manufactured items... I think the lexan is durable but...................more weight on a heavy coil. I will say that using the 19 inch makes the 14 seem a featherweight...in comparison. fred
  3. While up in the Sierra for a WSPA Outing I used my gpz. I had not used it since I did the upgrade. When I pushed the map button the man-icon came up but there were no tracks. The unit would mark a point and display it but no tracks to see where I had wandered. I also noticed the unit would not return to correct threshold in a timely manner. Nor did the other functions always work correctly... two different issues I think. What say yea? fred
  4. So, just one more issue during my Outing... I have been in the habit of tossing my ferrite on the ground...foolish me. They break into many pieces...so no more tossing... I wonder if the ring can be super glued back to one piece and function correctly? Or is it more like a metal ring that no longer gives the same signal once the circle is broke? Or do I need a new one? so many questions.... fred
  5. Have you ever wondered what's inside......... I know you have...... I have....... While I'm Ukranian, I don't understand Russian but it sure was neat to see how much they've crammed onto the boards inside our GPZ's. Jennifer
  6. Eating GPZ Crow

    My compliments to the chef, this crow I'm eating tonight is delicious Note: these are post CLR/ultrasonic clean.... You all know I've been pretty "honest" about my love for my 5000 and the frustrations I've had with Zeddie but she blew me away today on these three from the King Tut Placers (Gold Basin). They were down 3/4 of a foot or so and were clear as day, sung like a jay bird beautiful weee woooo dig me dig me signal.... Weights (in grains) 1.7 grains, 2.2 grains, and 3.1 grains.... Very thin pieces, as can be seen in the leaning on the dime photo.... It looks like Zeddie's sleeping on the couch today, not standing up in the corner like usual. I know my 5000 and 17x13 Evo would have missed them, I tested similar size... with the Sadie, maybe but these sounded like they were right on the surface, one was in a dig hole (thank you whomever left it). I'll eat GPZ crow all day long if it tastes like this. Note: I also tested on a 1.2 ouncer at DEEEEEP depth and was blown away how loud it was, even at sens 4. Green stripe shot is prior to cleanup. My favorite is the one that looks like a little shopping cart. Jen
  7. Hi all, Got a new video up recently, but I say (old) as the footage was taken just before Christmas!
  8. I've had my Zed now for over 2 years and less than 3. It is still under warranty. About a year ago I notice the pixels on my screen had developed a line in the lower right corner. I called Minelab and my only option was to send back the entire package in the original box. I may have done this at the time but I would have to wait a couple of months to get it back as there were no replacements available. Soon after I called the pixel lines went away and I have been using it just fine. Recently the pixel line has come back with even more lines. It is just a little distracting especially based on what I paid for it! Last week I called Minelab and they said they had plenty of units available. Call them back with the serial number and they would send an RMA number for me. When I called back they asked me the problem and I told them. I was then told I don't need to send back everything. I could send them the screen portion of the detector only. They would then send me a replacement screen which also has other parts of the brains in it. I imagine there is a board in there with the video and other functions so that would be replaced also. I don't know what is in the lower part of the detector. Has anyone had this 'fix' done and what are your results? They told me the day they get my screen will be the day they send out the new one. Mitchel
  9. Editors Note: This topic was split from the following thread - http://www.detectorprospector.com/forum/topic/3923-semi-auto-gpz-ground-balance/ I believe there is a lot of reasons of trying to turn GPX into a GPZ. They wont be never the same thing since they are in different technology . But anyone would like to walk around with an more affordable machine that could pack a punch of the " GREATEST". Im someone who started metal detecting and someday looking to upgrade to a heavier and more powerful machine. So after reading the pro and cons of each one i would pick a GPX over GPZ even if i found a Pound of Gold. -Lightest machine? GPX wins even with a larger coil. -Coils price and more coil options? GPX takes that. -immune to the hottest of ground? GPX i guess wins this since is a PI. Dont know where that ground exist but i know is out there. Okay so i have seen running a GPX with one of the newer coils could match the performace on depth on sub-gram nuggets and up. Now the GPZ would clearly stand out on tiny, spongy and specimen gold. But wouldnt you have enough money left to even buy a SDC 2300? I just dont see the reason of boasting a machine for ability to pick up super tiny gold when you need to pay so much for it. That headline for me fits more a GM1000 since its a way less expensive machine.
  10. Semi-auto GPZ Ground Balance

    Went out yesterday for a full day of detecting. Wanted to try the new semi auto ground balance. Went with pretty much basic default settings otherwise. I have to say I was quite pleased with it. I was in one of my beat to death patches. Lots of magnetic iron stones, hot rocks. It ran very smooth. It seemed I could separate the targets very distinctively. The small bits of wire were a raspy on the edges sound. The square nails were bangers. The non ferrous targets were about the same as the gold targets. Had one really weird target sound. I always dig those. But I usually dig everything 95% of the time. But the weird sound was gold. Not sure if my focus was just better yesterday or it was the new ground balance. But my instincts were pretty spot on, on what the target was going to be. But very pleased with the new update and settings. The take wasn't too spectacular, but I avoided the skunk in a hammered patch.
  11. GPZ 7000 Software Update 2 Get increased performance from your GPZ detector! Minelab is pleased to announce the second software update to our GPZ 7000 detector. This FREE update incorporates a new Ground Smoothing function, a Semi-Auto ground balance setting and Chinese/Mongolian language options. This update is currently NOT COMPATIBLE with XChange 2 - see notes below. Ground Smoothing This function implements selectable noise filters that help deal with difficult ground, especially conductive soils. The new Ground Smoothing options provide several advantages: Reduces noise effects of salty soils Allows detecting in previously ‘off-limits’ locations Achieves maximum depth with both coils Maximises your ground coverage efficiency “With the Locate Patch setting, it is now possible to use Normal Ground Type in very ‘hot’ laterite soil… this is exciting!” Field Tester 1 – Kalgoorlie, WA Semi-Auto This update adds a Semi-Auto option to the Ground Balance Mode. Semi‑Auto gives you these great benefits: Additional control and flexibility for expert users Improved ground balance stability Another option to deal with tricky detecting conditions A specialist tool for expert prospectors “In Semi-Auto mode the GPZ is noticeably quieter over the ground in all modes but especially in Normal Ground Type modes.” Field Tester 3 – Clermont, QLD For further details refer to the brochure here You can download the software here Read the Treasure Talk blog about Ground Smoothing here Firmware Installation Guide Important Notes: 1) Both the GPZ control box under the detector armrest AND the GPZ control pod user interface on top of the handle must be connected together and updated as a pair at the same time. Therefore, if sending your detector to a dealer or service centre, to carry out this update, do not send the control box alone. 2) This update is currently NOT COMPATIBLE with XChange 2 and therefore will make XChange 2 inoperable with the GPZ 7000 detector. Transfer and save Geotrails or Findpoints from your GPZ to XChange 2 before doing the upgrade. A new compatible version of XChange 2 will be available within the next few months, at which time full compatibility will be restored. Any data you have stored on XChange 2 will not be lost when you carry out the GPZ update and when this new version of XChange 2 becomes available. 3) When installing this upgrade, the detector will need to have the universal settings re-selected (e.g. language, weight) and the wireless module re-connected.

  12. GPZ 7000 Firmware Installation Procedure (PC or Mac) 1. Download the desired firmware version from the GPZ 7000 Downloads Page. You can update your GPZ to the latest version or roll back to any prior version using this method. IMPORTANT: Ensure your battery is fully charged before updating. Do not turn the detector off at any point during the update process, or the update will not be applied. 2. Connect GPZ 7000 to the computer via the USB cable. A drive called ‘Minelab’ will appear. 3. Transfer the software update file. Open the ‘Minelab’ drive, then copy the software update file into it. The update files end with the extension ".ml3" - anything else is the wrong file. Wait for the file to completely transfer. 4. Disconnect the GPZ 7000 from the computer by ejecting the drive and then unplugging the USB cable. The ‘USB Disconnected’ dialog will be displayed on the GPZ 7000 screen. This can take up to 2 minutes to complete. 5. Upgrade the GPZ 7000 firmware. At this point if the update file was properly transferred to the GPZ, the following dialog is displayed: 6. Select Upgrade to begin the firmware update. A progress bar will be displayed. If you select Cancel, the software update file you downloaded will be automatically deleted. You will need to download the update again (from step 1) to complete the process. If the Low Battery dialog is displayed, charge your battery and start the update process again. 7. Upgrade complete. When the upgrade is complete, GPZ 7000 will automatically turn off. When you power on again, the detector will start with the new firmware. 8. Upgrade failure. If you experience any trouble applying the update, try following the update steps again from start to finish. If this does not work, contact your dealer or a Minelab Service Center. 9. You can also check your detector’s software information at any time via the Version Information function on the Reset page. GPZ 7000 Firmware June 2017 (Second Update GPZ 7000 Firmware June 2017 (20170630).ml3 - Version Information will display 1.10.8-2052) (11.26 MB) GPZ 7000 Firmware October 2015 (First Update GPZ_7000_UPDATE_IMAGE_20151009.ml3 - Version Information will display 1.2.8-98) (9.69 MB) GPZ 7000 Firmware January 2015 (Original Release GPZ_7000_UPDATE_IMAGE_20150130.ml3 - Version Information will display 1.0.8-57) (10.63 MB)
  13. Got out to the hills for a couple hours today to have a play with the new software update on the GPZ 7000. Straightaway went to a spot that has variable hot ground that is noisy in the Normal Ground Type setting. The new Ground Smoothing with the Locate Patch option selected almost completely eliminated the ground noise, while still retaining really good sensitivity. It wasn't long before the first target revealed itself with a crisp, obvious response. Only an inch or so into the weathered quartzite bedrock, out popped a small, thin nugget: Next I hit a patch of variable ground that was really noisy; in fact it proved to be too noisy even in Locate Patch, so I turned the Ground Smoothing off and switched the Ground Type from Normal to Difficult, increasing the Sensitivity to compensate. The noisy ground completely disappeared, and within a few swings I had a nice solid target. Three inches down was a chunky, ragged little piece of gold: The new Semi-Auto Ground Balance Mode didn't seem to have much effect in the variable ground that I was hunting. Since this Mode fixes the X-balance, I assume it's meant more for uniformly hot mineralized ground types. The new Salty Soil Ground Smoothing mode was very chattery, even at low sensitivity levels and with Audio Smoothing set to High, so it's very susceptible to EMI, but to be fair I was in close proximity to power lines. All in all, a great update that provides more tools for the GPZ 7000 toolbox.
  14. As a result of the Minelab 7000 firmware update I had reason to revisit Xchange2. My story is that I had my main copy of Xchange2 on a computer that crashed. My backup laptop included a copy that didn't support the 3030 and 7000. I didn't want to loose the 3030 data so I renamed some files. When I used Google Chrome to go to Minelab and download the Xchange2 program a popup came from Google and said this was a fishing site or malware site and could not download the Xchange2 program. I had to open the Microsoft Edge (Exchange Browser) and get the file and install it that way. Has anyone had Google Chrome block a Minelab download? Mitchel
  15. Overall, the GPZ is an awesome tool and I have been extremely happy with it since I purchased one about 6 months ago. But I thought I would gather what things people wish would be included as a future option/improvement such as software upgrades/gps options ... etc. Maybe I will forward the link to their marketing department (since I hear engineers are so difficult to work with ;p) Please list only your top 3 wishes for improvement/options/upgrades in order of priority ... if they are the same as others then that is fine. It shows we want similar things. My wish list: 1) smaller coil option - anywhere from 8-11" 2) software update allowing storage of a secondary settings (similar to GPX5000) 3) maybe a clock on the front screen
  16. Hi Every one With the GPZ-7000, 2.5 yrs on and only a single update to fix the GB , Is it about time that the next update is just around the corner ? What is it that you'd like to see in the next fix or performance or what ever etc etc I for one would like to see a similar screen used as the CTX 3030 that shows you what target is what , surely ML should be able to do that by now ? or can they ? Cheers Marty
  17. It has certainly been a busy year for me so far, with not as much detecting time as I would like. Still, I have been getting out a little and thought it was time to share a few photos. My first couple bits were found with the Minelab Gold Monster 1000 on some scouting runs. I am liking this detector as a grab and go unit for checking areas out quickly. I am not trying to hunt for max performance but instead looking to cover a lot of ground quickly to check things out. I have learned the GM1000 auto sensitivity actually suits me well for this. I just fire up the detector in all metal mode, full volume, and start with auto sensitivity set at Auto+1. Then I just start swinging. If noise intrudes (usually in salt areas) I will back down to Auto+0 (there are just two Auto settings available Auto and Auto+1). Once the GM1000 gets out and about people will no doubt note the Auto settings are not the hottest. Which is why I like them. The GM1000 is a super hot machine already, so I am looking more for stability than anything else, and know it will pop hard on any small nuggets I get over. If I were pounding a patch hard I would use manual sensitivity and push it high, but that would introduce noise and require very careful hunting. For me however the GM1000 serves best as a light weight quick and dirty way to check new areas - just grab and go. I posted previously about finding a nugget using Auto sensitivity which is where I learned how useful the setting is. Here are two more small nuggets located using Auto+1. Both nuggets banged hard, one at maybe an inch and the other at about three inches. I am not trying to promote or to push the use of this setting, I am simply reporting what I am doing and you can decide for yourself if it is useful for you. 0.1 gram and 0.4 gram nuggets found with Minelab Gold Monster 1000 running in Auto+1 sensitivity I did finally get a GPZ 19 coil for my GPZ 7000 and it was time to give it a go. I tried one area I had hunted before in case a larger deeper nugget was lurking. My first lesson with the GPZ 19 was not how large and deep a nugget it can find but how small and shallow! The only thing I had missed and left to find was this less than 0.1 gram nugget. It was practically on the surface and so gave a small warble when it got close to the coil winding. I was surprised and impressed the coil can find gold this small. The next location is one I scouted with the GM1000 and found the 0.4 gram nugget. The spot got my interest so I went back with the GPZ 7000 and 14" coil to hunt it. Turns out it was a nice little patch with some chunky gold! The ground was deep so I mounted up the GPZ19 and hunted it again. I did come up with one nugget I missed before, whether from sloppy detecting or just a little too deep I do not know. It was a little 1.2 grammer at around a foot down. I continued hunting outside my area and came up with another at 1.3 grams. GPZ19 Nuggets I had removed the Minelab skid plate that came with the coil and replaced it with the closed Nugget Finder cover. I like this cover for uneven ground as it does not get hung up of rocks and sticks as much, but it does rapidly collect a pile of debris! The coil did false if banged on a rock and would require care in rocky ground, though I was running it as hot as ever so that contributes to it. I usually hunt grassy and sagebrush country and it does well here just gliding on the grass, though if the grass is deep it will ride up on it above the ground. Still, the larger size gave me this feeling that I had a little extra insurance in that regard and so I used it to hunt over low brush where it might reveal nuggets hidden when others went around the brush. False signals from banging a rock aside I do think the coil actually runs a bit smoother with my Insanely Hot settings. The GPZ19 is slightly too heavy for me for general use in hilly terrain and too large for a lot of the sagebrush areas. It is just the ticket however for covering large open terrain and that is where it will see the most use with me in the future, or for pounding old deep patches. The extra pound was not quite as bad as I was expecting and in flatter ground just my regular bungee setup sufficed. I did try out the Hipstick though and think it a better option for long hours with this coil. Well, lots of info there I hope people can get some use out of. It's always nice to be out prospecting whether or not I find any gold - but gold does help! 24 grams or about 3/4 ounce with largest nugget 4.5 grams or just shy of three pennyweight.
  18. Interesting. This new Youtube channel popped up recently for somebody calling themselves X Coils https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQEHSSBIdi5fWH26IS12v4A It appears to be Russian? and they appear to be working on coils for the GPZ. Here is a peek at the 12" x 10". Personally, that's a bit too similar to the stock coil to interest me - I would rather see a 10" x 8". Still, it's interesting that somebody has managed to make some coils that might work on the GPZ without blowing it up. This is one detector that I will have to let others gamble with first on this sort of thing but I knew you would all find it interesting. They also are showing a 16" round coil....
  19. Hi guys, I ventured out for the day after watching the America's Cup yacht racing early in the morning our time so still had a good amount of the day ahead of me. Got to my spot which was old turned over dry gully workings high up in the hills. I have been down this gully a couple of times with the Zed before, but each time conditions have been different. Dry sunny & long lush grass growth....not too good for detecting, Dry sunny & grass growth non existent. Perfect detecting conditions except for heat & flys. Today was overcast, chilly but the ground was damp from snow fall last week but that had melted off except for way up top. So I was hoping the dampness would aid in better conductivity for deeper targets that had alluded me in the past. Trouble was the grass growth, although dying off was quite long. Should have taken the brush cutter. You will see the humps & hollows from the old timers turning this gully over. My wagon parked up the back. Had a bit of fun getting through to this gully as the shaded sides of other gullies I had to negotiate to get here were still frozen with a bit of permafrost. I have in the past found gold all up & down this gully. Both out of the old boys workings & turned over ground but also up on the hill sides out of the workings. Trying to find a run or lead but no joy. Just random deposits The most consistent being the gully floor the old timers turned over. Were I am parked is opposite one of the spots up on the hill side where I came across a wee patch. So I started there with the Zed. I actually started a bit further afield working my way towards the wee patch area hoping to stumble on to some thing. No luck there. Been there done that before but with the damp conditions you never know. I got to the wee patch area & really slowed down. Got a faint little hit. The ground was gorgeous to dig. Couple of scrapes & the target had moved. Bugger....wasn't going to be of any decent size. Story of my life. Could still be a shot gun pellet yet. But it wasn't. YE HA But look at the size of it...... I managed one more small piece with the Zed in this area but that was it for the Zed. So I brought out the Gold Monster thinking there could be some smaller surface to near surface dwellers that the Zed wasnt zoning in on. I left the GM 1000 in Deep All Metal Mode & sensitivity on manual 10 not knowing how this would handle the damp ground conditions. It was manageable but it was a bit more touchy than if the ground were dry. I just had to be a lot more careful with my coil sweep & placement. There was a bit more falsing signals than I usually get running in 10 on the manual sensitivity but I remained in 10 to have that hot edge & an actual signal was an unmistakable hit over the falsing signals. I was rewarded. But that too was the only bit I could wrangle out of this old patch area. So I moved on. The grass wasn't helping my cause, especially in the gully floor. I went back to the Zed battling through the grass. The grass itself wasn't too bad. It folded over quite easily with the weight of the Zeds coil without falsing but it was those longer dry stalky bits that were very stiff & wouldnt fold over. I swung the coil up on the side of a turned over pile. It was the face of a pile that I had done well on over the years with different detectors so I went carefully slow. Especially as I had those stalky bits to deal with. I got a very faint hit. Could have been a shoty pellet. You will see an old dig top right & to the right. They were both gold. As was this one. But again...oh so small. There isn't much bed rock in these workings but there are a couple of small stretches in the very bottom of the gully. I had found a few bits off to the edge of this bed rock with the Zed in the past. So I was keen to run the GM 1000 over it. Well bugger me.....I got a sweet strong hit. One scrape I was on the bed rock. Chances of it being a pellet? 50/50 but if you look hard you will see a dot of gold. If you are struggling to see it. Here you go. The only other chance of pinging some tiny gold with the GM 1000 was on the bald areas of the dig out piles. I say tiny because I have thrashed these from back in my GP 3000 days & small coiltek 10x5 joey mono coils. & the 4500 & NF 8x6 sadie. With good results. You will see a bit of past activity on that mound in the front. You may struggle to see it but center right you will see the Gold monster. I had got a faint signal on a mound back there. Couple of scrapes & it had moved. And it wasn't lead. It had been a long day, the sun was going down & temperature was dropping & the ground would be starting to freeze on the shaded sides & I had a few gullies to negotiate to get to the safety of the ribbon of tar-seal that would take me home. All up 3 bits for the Zed,on the left, & 3 for the GM 1000 for a total of .5 of a gram The things we do. Cheers guys. Good luck out there JW
  20. Monster Coil Jam

    Sorry about the title, I couldn't help myself with all the monster talk . This video is a bit of detector vs big coil comparison on a decent sized bit of trash (unfortunately).
  21. I've been trying for a while to get one from my dealer.I called minelab myself. They are backordered. For as good as your detectors are. Other little things you really SUCK at. WTF Minelab. Get me a ferrite ring and make me happy. You spend 10 K on a detector, but can't get a 10 dollar ring.
  22. GPZ Help

    Hi All I was hoping some of you might be able to clear somethings up for me please. When you GB, Do you do the "walk and sweep" method and then "ferrite balance"? or Can you only pick one method? IF only one method allowed, then how do you decide which one to use? Also, is there any "list" so to speak of showing different gold modes and ground types combinations to help know what depths and sizes you are targeting? Eg, HY/Normal = ? Hy/Difficult = ? Hy/Severe = ? General/Normal = ? General/Difficult = ? General/Severe = ? ExtraDeep/Normal = ? ExtraDeep/Difficult = ? ExtraDeep/Severe = ? I have found "info" regarding settings for large deep nuggets but what if I also wanted to check for small shallow gold? What settings would suit small, shallow bits? Sorry to ask so much in one go :)
  23. It's been and extreme wet season in my hunting areas for months! Back in the day when I dredged, I'd be jumping in the creeks hitting my known gold lairs. But, and extreme wet season for chasing nuggets with a metal detector isn't necessary for success. Wet soil means extra hot ground as we fight the minerals in the different soils of our goldfields. I swing the GPZ 7000 and like many High Yield/Normal is my favorite setting when the ground permits a smooth Threshold. But, for months I've been stuck in High Yield/Difficult. Using Difficult, means some different gold tones to store in your mind too. Our entire hunting group this year has had to simmer down their SDC 2300 and GPX's to combat this wet season soil conditions. In these hot soil conditions expect numerous hot spots of minerals that sound like a likable target. You have to check these spots out! Mineralized hot dirt most of the time will not get louder as you dig a couple inches. Hot rocks can/will get louder as you dig, but most of these spots you can try to ground balance out before you dig deeper...some! A real target will sometimes fool you in hot soils. It's may sound good as your digging it and out of the hole. But, in the pile hard to hear and may sound like hot soil. Kick your pile flat helps to bring your target back to life. Who said, in metal detecting you'd need a Criminal Justice Degree in syphring out a true target and catching a sly nugget in hot soils...hard enough in good conditions! This trip, there was no skunks in our hunting party of 5, my two are top center and the big one was just shy of 1/4 oz 4.89 dwt. Until the next hunt! LuckyLundy
  24. GPZ 7000 Display

    I purchased my Zed in mid-2015, and since then I have complained about the display being difficult to see clearly. Then yesterday I realised that it is a "sunlight-readable" display, presumably similar to what is used on some of the later Garmin GPSs. That is, when the display is in full sunlight it can be seen very clearly. I'm assuming most people here probably already know this, but I've mentioned it in case there are one or two others out there who are as smart as I am and taken nearly two years to work it out. Col
  25. Got out Saturday for a day hunt at Gold Basin, Arizona. Ended up with 3 Gold Nuggets, and a few meteorites, wish the weather stayed like this all the time ..... Dave.
