5. A plastic foot that would last for two or three trips instead of one.

6. a screen that would hold up as well as my $2 cell phone screen.

6.5. An arm strap that would fit over a coat sleeve so Sourdough S. wouldn't have to detect in his tee shirt in a snow storm.

All great suggestions, and I will repeat a couple in my own list:

  1. Ferrous discrimination
  2. Salt mode
  3. Small coil
  4. More memory for tracks and find points
  5. Import/export function (XChange 2)
  6. Brighter screen
  7. Clock on screen with audio alarm set
  8. User button flips between at least two saved "programs" made up of any combination of settings

Nice one Klunker.  That one gets my goat all the time.

With my limited use of the 7000...I would have to say that my biggest wish is that I could save programs like I do my ctx. Most importantly going from gold mode to ground type. If I could do this faster I would be happier.

Top of my list,

1) smaller coil option

2) SD slot for additional memory 

3) Mac compatible software, also not dependent of using internet.

1.) Deeper

2.) Deeper

100.) Deeper

101.) Lighter

I'll buy another if so. Out of the game until that point.

1. A signal graphic similar to the DFX but based on audio response with variable update speed, tie the baseline to threshold.

2. A reading on current GB so I can see when it begins to struggle instead of guessing with my audio

3. The ability to suspend coil operation temporarily while digging, taking a break or just going over to see what my mates found and compare signals.  Tired of having to turn things on or off and chucking the detector away so I can dig in peace.

4. As said before, on screen clock without having to open the GPS

Both 1 and 2 could be put together but would require a better screen.... 3 would mean a bit of circuitry or maybe programming... 4 should have been a no brainier for the engineers.

Thank you all who participated in listing out your wish for future ZED upgrades.

Top scores summary:

6x  people wanted ability to save settings so they could be switched back and forth

6x people want a clock to show on the front screen

5x people wanted a smaller coil option (elliptical would be a plus)

4x wanted password protection

4x wanted more depth

3x wanted a large wrist strap so you didn't have to wear a t-shirt while detecting

3x wanted better working for Salt

and there were many other good suggestions...

I'm curious to see in the long run, what direction engineering & marketing will take to improve their most expensive gold detector.

      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.

      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. 
      Jen
