Thread For New Detectorist Using Deus And New Deus Users

Update: USING GOLD FIELD

Been out today on a old Roman site, very worked out for many years, believe me, finds here are very far and few between.....

however I searched using G/Field, lots of iron naturally, struggled initially, with the amount of feedback from iron contamination on this site,,,  however this program is relatively new to me, so persevere I did,, as the day went on things started to all click, what was the game changer was when I experimented with the XY Screen,, ( I've never been fan of this before) but it's extremely accurate using G/ Field!! Amazingly accurate information!!

My advice to anyone interested in trying G/Field is to have a try using the XY screen! I certainly was amazed with the accuracy!

By the end of the day I managed to find several Roman coins including 1silver Denarius!

All in all ,,,, very impressive!

settings below....( GB of 66 was grabbed early in the day and I never had to adjust for rest of the day, machine ran really stable on this GB number)

Elliptical coil

Disc...IAR 5

GB.... 66

reactivity ... 4

sens.... 95....

Audio Response.... 4

threshold...0

Frequency...74 KHz

XY Screen 

Hope this helps at least one person!!!!

regards

Dave.

Thanks Tn for such well thought out posts. As a new Deus user it is incredibly helpful. I mainly hunt the beaches of SoCal and so far I go by the tones and just keep the remote in my pocket. Now I’m inspired to take it out and look at what it’s telling me.

Forgive me, but how does one get into X/Y from GF? Trying to save a custom program.

Hit the OPTION button,

go to CONFIGURATION,

then PROFILE, 

then XY.... set magnify to, five or six...by pressing down on the pinpoint button for a second or two,

Well, it's been a couple of weeks since my last post here.

 

So what's new with using the Gold Field program?

Here's  my thoughts since then.

(TNsharpshooter, I'll appreciate your thoughts on this)

Downside......

The Deus using Gold Field,,, will except good audio response, that's not necessarily a non ferrous target,,, even using IAR settings of 4 or 5!

Somehow,, maybe deep iron?,,, I'm not sure, will give a fantastic audio sound, but check the VDI and it registers as 00/01 ........

However in saying that,,, the majority iron, this program has no problems with telling the user that iron is under the coil!

I've come to the conclusion that Gold Field, just maybe, is unable to totally discriminate all ferrous targets, perhaps which are deep?

However,, since using this program I can't remember the last large piece of iron I've dug!,, in conjunction with the XY screen.

The most important thing is when using Gold Field ,, IMO,, is the XY screen it's vital!!! ,,,,, this is very accurate at telling the user of these false "audio signals ",, I've settled for the XY magnification of 4,, this does seem to have a better way of indicating targets, set too high, and the lines seem to go a bit crazy!

(Personally I think GF program, should be defaulted to showing the XY screen)

Obviously GB is vital when using G/F,  

Funnily enough today, I had ground sensitivity set on 6, and the top right box displayed virtually the same GB number that was grabbed using G/F ,,, this has given me huge encouragement with the new V4.1 update in respect of the new GB sensitivity feature!....

Personally I'm loving this program,, and it's definitely found me lots of excellent finds, from sites I honestly thought were searched out!

Message to all,,,,, give this a try,,, be patient,, it will take time to get your head into this program,,, and you may well be very surprised!

Regards 

Dave

      Ok, complete noob question here: When Im out there and listening for tones on my Equinox 800, why dont some sounds register a number? I hear all these little sounds and noises but when I go back over they sometimes disappear. Sometimes the noise changes or is very hard to find again. What can I do to help myself isolate these sounds and is every errant sound something to dig?

      I did a search on forums for possible locations in Sumpter as we are going to be there June 22-25. Most of them where older.  Is there some public areas that we can detect there?  Or is there a organization that I can pay for access? While were there just hate to miss an opportunity slip away.  Also going to Burns and John Day fossil area if anyone knows of some possibilities....detecting or other rockhounding activities... Thanks!

      Hello, recently I've been given some of my  Uncle's things that he used while prospecting in California from the 1970's until about 1995 in the motherlode area, I only panned as a child and observed stream dregding so this is all new to me.  I received an E-Z Pickins dry vac back pack.  It's missing a few things so it needs work, but it has a manual of 27 pages in fairly decent shape.  If anyone wants a copy I'm willing to make them one cost of materials and a small processing fee for my time.  I have a copy of Dry Washing for Gold thats 81 pages if anyone is searching for that publication.  Thank you.

      Wondering if anyone else has this issue with glare when detecting with the sun behind your back. The big screen reflects back. I was wondering if anyone has tried any anti-glare film and have any suggestions.

      I would like to introduce to you my new favorite hand digger. After about three weeks of detecting, I have come to love this new digger I have come across. It's small, light weight (about 10 1/2 oz.) and super strong. The handle design is not your typical T handle, It is reversed and angled for better leverage while digging. Great for some of us with bad hands and It's made from heat treated Chromoly steel. The edges are serrated and the tip is perfectly designed and sharp. The handle has a bed liner type grip and 3/4 inch tubing. The blade is 2 1/4 inches wide and 6 inches long. The overall length is about 12 1/2 inches at its longest measurement. This guy has figured out what diggers are supposed to be. I added a custom paint job and paracord /carabiner clip, The paint job  is holding up better than I thought and In my opinion this is one of the best diggers I have ever used.  Well where do you get one????? Lucky for you members here, It's made Here in the USA by one of our great members Kac. He makes them on a limited basis and Quantity so be aware that there are only so many to be had at a given time. Kac will give you all the details on pricing and shipping if you PM him.

      I've been updating this guide for almost twenty years now. It started back when there was little to offer in way of objective opinions on gold nugget detectors. That's not so much this case these days, but this is still the most comprehensive roundup available, along with some admittedly personal opinions about the models. These days we honestly have almost too many options, which can be confusing for beginners. So a few years ago I added my own short list of three models I recommend as safe picks for anyone around the world.
      The list was updated mainly to change my notes on the various Fisher 19 kHz models, where oddities in the First Texas marketing have now left the Gold Bug models high and dry as other FT 19 kHz models are available with better prices. I added warnings that the Minelab X-Terra 705 and GPX 4500 are in the process of being closed out and discontinued. Also added a big warning up front about counterfeit detectors - very common now in the nugget detector world.
