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.
