Northeast  

 It’s great to hear from you that you show to be a happy camper with your 6000 . Where some others have been on the downside of the 6000 .

 I don’t care what detector your using it takes time in the field to know and hear what it’s trying to tell you. I found out long ago how important one little boot scrape can make on a signal your not so sure of .

 Thanks so much for you and Gold Catcher show & tell.

 Northeast as soon they finish that bridge I plan on driving down and digging for you.

 Take care!

Thanks Chuck, I'm really enjoying it.  Looking forward to being able to head a bit further afield and try out some different ground but so far, so good.

Fantastic finds NorthEast and glad you are taking a liking to the GPX-6000. 

Specimen gold is always hard to see for PI detectors and yes this machine is certainly doing a fine job.

Thanks for sharing your experiences

With the 6000 it takes a while to train your brain to listen to the quieter rock solid threshold and not all the little pitch changes, it is what I call a busy detector and can take some getting used to coming from a 7k or a muffled 5K. Do not be afraid to lower the sensitivity to half to smooth things out then slowly increase from there once you have your ear in. 

The 5k out of the box has its Stabilizer control set to half way (10, equivalent to High Audio Smoothing on the 7K), this artificially smooths out detector behaviour and is akin to running the 6K on about 2 or 3 (sort of, the sensitivity control on the 6K is more complex than that oversimplification).

Good going on the gold Northeast 😊

      Early wet Weather in Northern Nevada, sure messed up a few of my hunts!  But, this last Hunt was called Rain or Shine!  Be there or miss out with the original hunting party.  We had half the amount of coils on the ground during this hunt and managed to find a few sweet spots of dinks to add to our pokes.  Rain on us with snow in the ground 200’ above us all 4-Days!  6000, Retune Button got a workout.  I kept the 11” Mono on.  Tried the DD for a few hours with no luck, don’t know if the ground and line I took was bad, but the guys behind me where finding nuggets…so back to the 11”.  My truck is out in the drive way in the wet Weather still loaded up with me gear!  Getting wet again to unload it, I can’t wait 🤨
      Until the next Hunt!

      Is there or has there been any comparison testing done in the field on depth with the 6000 vs the 7000 using the NF 12" Z-search coil.
      Thanks . . .

      I had something strange happen, today. I had my GPX 6000 battery fully charged and fresh off the charger.  It had completed its charge cycle and then trickle charged overnight.  I popped it in the detector and started detecting. Within five minutes the battery meter dropped from three bars to two bars.  If I turned off the detector and let it sit for a 5-10 minutes and then turned it back on, it would go back up to three bars for a short period of time before then going back to two bars. Has anyone else noticed this with theirs?

      as I already put in another post, I just bought a second-hand gpx 5000.  It comes with the comander 11 DD and 11Mono coils.  I would like if it is possible for a colleague to recommend a coil to complement the ones it brings.  Its use would be to search for coins.  I've been looking at the detech 15 inch DD ultra sensing.  If anyone has used it, what can you tell me about it?

      Hey all, still have a gpx 4000 I bought from AK M&D. Guess it's time for an upgrade. My Question is does the 4500 have enough improvements to justify the upgrade
    • By The_Stalker
      After reading all items available I am confused.  It's probably just me so I apologize if this is a dumb question.  In soil that has low mineralization which coil will go deeper and is more suitable, a DD coil or a mono coil of equal size?  Or in low mineralization does it not matter if you use a DD or a mono coil?
