 I had the same falsing issues with my 19", but worse was the fact that it almost came off when detecting in brush and rocks. To solve the problem of the cover coming off, I used 18 small zip ties to secure it.   After my mod, the falsing was gone. I assume that the zip ties added stability to the coil.

 Here is a picture of my mod

 Norm,

I see you really hillbillied it! 

 

Norvic,

 We should not have to add and repair brand-new coil's from minelab. By gluing and putting stuff on your coil adds weight also.  So they should've made it a solid coil then just like the 14 inch. It's a falsing issue with the wire windings inside the coil. It doesn't have anything to do with settings. The settings are for sensitivity to gold not to control your falsing of your coil. I use JP's settings for my 19 inch coil and it's falsing on every brush rock or anything it gets banged against.  So I spent most of my time going back over the same spot I just went over to see if it was gold or not. It is a waste of time and it was a waste of money. The 14 inch doesn't false at all.

Hey Road Dog. Mate I agree completely any new purchase shouldn`t have to repaired before you can use it, but before I bought my 19" coil I knew I was going to fit a solid plate to it straight away for no other reason than solid coils are way easier to use.    I have not experienced any falsing with my coil and I truly don`t know if it`s because I fiitted the solid plate or if I was just pure and simple lucky with the coil I got.  I hope you and Jen get it sorted.                Dave

Thank's Phoenix,

I hope we both can soon. The weather is going  to get better soon I hope. So I need to get out there and hit it with the 19 inch coil.

This may or may not be applicable to the 7000 but I started getting falsing on my Elite not long ago only when the coil was raised above the ground and it ended up being a crack in the skid plate allowing slight movement.Replaced with another and retaped and the problem was gone.I don't see how it could cause this problem just glad its fixed.

Maybe Dave your permanent solution fixes it for good,might try it on my elite.(Cheaper too in the long run)

Agree 1000000%

I noticed in High Yield, I get less/ almost no false signals from bumping/scraping compared to being in General or extra deep, with both the 14, and the 19 coil.

I'd like to thank you all for so quickly helping me on this, I have a solid cover coming from Rob and if I have to use the stock one I will zip tie it like Norm. I knew it wasn't settings as much as the coil itself. You all helping so fast by confirming I wasn't imagining things really helped me get past the psychological block of such a huge transition.... going from my much loved 5000 to this beast is a real big change and it's going to take some time to build that confidence up in my machine again and when the coil was doing this, it took me straight back to the defective 4500 I had days some of you helped on back in 2009.... knowing this wasn't my imagination, makes me confident I can make the 7000 become my new partner like my 5000 is.... 

Big thanks to JP and Norm for stepping up so fast and in PM's

Jen

      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....

      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?

      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.

      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.

      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.
