Maybe a new thread if you have the time JP. "How to target large, deep gold with the GPZ?" Is it your conservative settings or something different again? How does the audio differ, etc?
There are bits and pieces (linked below) that maybe all add up to an answer but if there are any other secrets you want to add JP, I'll listen
I have been painfully considering a purchase of a 7000. Seeing the gold a friends 7000 is getting that seems to be out of reach of a 5000 is giving me reason for this consideration. However with the areas I used to have access to that facilitates the use of the large coils are being lost due to development and I would have little or no areas to go that there would be a benefit to the large coils. If Minelab would make a small coil like the 11 inch diameter that is stock with all the other models up to the 7000 it would justify a purchased. I wonder if it’s the technology in the electronics that will not work with a small coil.

Seeing some barely-used gpz 7000's coming across the auction block.
Weren't there early ones that had issues?
If so how were these issues resolved?
How can you tell if the unit on the auction block is not one of these?
Having not owned one yet I'm a little behind and appreciate any feedback.
Hi all does anybody ground balance there machine as per instructions then leave the machine on the ground with ferrite under the plate ?
I did this while i was getting the rest of my gear ready and it really made it quieter , in very hot ground.
The machine was sitting there for about 5 to 8 min approximately.
I updated to the latest firmware in september, sunday when I was detecting I would lose my sound through the wireless, I plugged in headphones and no sound from the machine through them either EXCEPT for turning it on, and also when the WM wireless connects I hear that (but probably from the unit not the headphones)
Anyone else have issues, I do see 2 other threads but have tried both fixes including updating again. No dice, need the GPZ!
