GPZ 7000 Wish List

19 posts in this topic

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.

      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 :)

      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!

      This only fits the newer Minelab CTX 3030 and all GPZ 7000 units. Most people like me probably only want a replacement stand but for $15.00 with free shipping it is hard to complain. Except about the stand being so flimsy in the first place!

      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  .....

      I know how to use the GOTO function...what I cannot find is the STOP GOTO function.  The only way I have found is to turn off the detector...any ideas???

      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.
