I was hoping to hear more from 24 k users as there’s a lot of gm1000 owners

I've had my 24k for awhile now, and just sold my GM1000. They are both extremely sensitive, but I like the 24k because it has more onboard tools to customize the detectors performance in different situations. And the 6" concentric coil does shoot a little deeper than a double-D coil of the same size.

I would probably also appreciate the extra control the 24k offers.  But, in auto tracking, did the 24k perform as well as the GM1000?

The XGB auto tracking works great, and unlike the GM1000, it tracks several ground balance points simultaneously, providing more accurate tracking in variable ground.

Lunk, How do you feel the Nox 800 compares with the 24k? Considering the Nox also has more onboard tools to customize the detectors performance in different situations. Unlike the GM 1000. Cheers.

Good luck out there

JW :smile:

I’m thinking the 24k has a slight edge over the EQX 800 between the XGB and concentric coil.

The 24k totally outclasses the Gold Monster as regards user-adjustable features. The 24k features fully adjustable audible threshold, variable self-adjusting audible threshold, locked ground balance, instantaneous ground balance via "grab," adjustable ground balance offset, VCO modulated non-motion pinpoint, relative target depth indication when pinpointing, soil analysis via Ground Scan, which reveals both the strength and  type of soil mineralization, fully adjustable iron reject, which ranges from extreme ground, then rot rocks, then iron of varying size, two-tone "good/bad" target ID,  and the awesome XGB multi-point ground balance averaging system allows the 24k to be operated in extreme ground that defeats the Gold Monster. With those advantages, and lower price, the 24k is far and away the better choice of the two. My recommendation: Get the 24k Export Pack, the flat-bottomed 6.5" concentric is unbelievably sensitive to microflakes, even in the worst of soils. Hope this helps. HH Jimmy M

Because these two detectors are so different in design, there are other things to consider besides performance.

Some might be willing to give up a possible very slight edge in performance of the 24k for the simplicity of the Monster.  The Monster is so unique in that regard that it has real value. 

The simplicity of the Monster 1000 is frankly addicting to me even though I have the experience and skills to run the more complex nugget detectors.  Maybe I’m just getting old.  I have an Equinox I can use if I want to play with settings and try to dial in peak performance if i want.

Im just saying your personality and type of hunting you do needs to be factored in for Detector choice too.

I am interested in a link to the details about how the ground tracking works in the Gold Monster and the assertion that it does not track multiple ground points. I am also interested in seeing evidence that the 24K can operate in ground that “defeats” the Gold Monster.

You hit the nail on the head, Bryan: some folks prefer automatic operation while others like to fiddle with settings.

Now that you mention it, Steve, that is an asumption on my part, so I’m interested too.

      I’m heading up to Georgetown gold fields, in North Queensland Australia soon. Do not want to get into the new GPX 6000 or GPZ 7000 yet and besides that I do not live close to a gold region. I currently own a CTX 3030. I know that the Monster is not in the same league as the more expensive units but at just over $1,000 it is an option to purchase.
      But my thoughts are that the CTX I already own may do pretty much the same as the Monster, plus it has discrimination ability.
      Could someone please enlighten me. Thanks.

      I purchased a White's 24K this summer and am really liking this detector.  Have an out cropping that I swing a Goldbug II over every year so it's been picked pretty clean, but was surprised to actually get a signal with the 24K and it turn out to be gold.  Thinking when the 6x4 coil comes out I may finally say goodbye to the Goldbug II.  Maybe.
      One issue I am having is that it will shut off after a couple hours use.  It would start back up ok but after running a couple hours it would shut down on it's own again.  Just curious if anyone else had encountered this issue?  Contacted Whites but haven't heard anything back from them yet.

      Wow this news from Garrett Metal Detectors was definitely a surprise.! I didn't see this one coming. GPAA News by Kevin Hoagland mentioned this intro news this month.

      GARRETT METAL DETECTOR ANNOUNCES FIRST DETECTOR LAUNCH FROM THE WHITE’S ACQUISITION
      Kevin Hoagland

      Van, Texas April 17, 2021 – Mr. Vaughan Garrett Senior Vice President, Marketing and Sales announced to the attendees of the Charles Garrett Memorial Hunt IV, the first co-branded Garrett – White’s detector will be the GoldMaster 24K aka. GMT 24K due for release mid-year 2021.

      Members of the Garrett team that I spoke with including Mr. Garrett shared with me that there are Garrett technologies they wish to incorporate into the GMT 24K before release but did not elaborate on what those upgrades may be.

      I'm very excited about this launch, which is just a month or so away, currently I own a GM 24K ,I purchased just before COVID and wonder if we will qualify for an upgrade,if any are made. Maybe a grace period within 1 year of purchase would be fair to qualify.

      What are your thoughts you 24K owners?
      I wonder what they will rebrand to? GOLDMASTER 24K by Whites/Garrett or GOLDMASTER 24K by Garrett Metal Detectors? What do you think? I was gon a post this in the Garrett section but I'm sure I would get some stonethrowers or negative response. I'm tempted though,lol.

      I'm very excited about this launch, which is just a month or so away, currently I own a GM 24K, I purchased just before COVID and wonder if we will qualify for an upgrade,if any are made. Maybe a grace period within 1 year of purchase would be fair to qualify.

      What are your thoughts you 24K owners?
      Co-branded. So Garrett GMT 24K? White’s GMT 24K by Garrett? Garrett/White’s 24K?

      I’d probably ditch the White’s moniker entirely, but they paid money for the name and want to leverage it. I’m not sure that works unless it was kept as a separate division. People are going to know it’s a Garrett, and that’s what it will probably get called anyway. Avoid the Nokta/Makro effect and keep it simple. Product name should roll off the tongue, not be a mouthful.
      So it’ll be Garrett 24K for me. Garrett additions? What does that mean? Maybe a tweak to the threshold as I felt a disconnect there. Better be the same housing, but I’m guessing not desert tan?
      Whatever, names and colors do not matter, just performance. Great move by Garrett!

      The only ML offering I can honestly say was junk is the GM1000. Owned one for a month and that was a month too long. I was way better off keeping my GB2. So glad I upgraded to the 24K. Cant wait to try the 6000 though!
