The Minelab X-Terra 505 metal detector was introduced in 2009 and is still in production. The X-Terra 505 is a selectable frequency VLF metal detector aimed primarily at coin, jewelry, and relic detecting. The X-Terra models are unique in that they sense the coil attached to the detector, and then match the detector frequency to the coil. Coils are made in 3 kHz, 7.5 kHz, and 18.75 kHz versions. The X-Terra 505 comes standard with a 7.5 kHz  9" round concentric coil.

"The perfect all rounder! The X-TERRA 505 is a high performance, mid-range detector in the Minelab X-TERRA Series. With advanced capability, great depth and excellent discrimination, the X-TERRA 505 is the ideal all-rounder to take your detecting experience to the next level. The X-TERRA 505 has 3 frequency capability and can adapt easily to coin & treasure and relic hunting." Source: Minelab website

  • Increased Ground Balance capability, range now (0-50), allowing the user to adjust to ground mineralization.
  • Extra detecting pattern – Now features three preset detecting patterns, that can also be customised, plus All Metal mode.
  • Choice of 1,2,3 or 4 Tone ID’s plus Multi-tone Target ID (19) response options increasing your flexibility in deciding how target signals are represented.
  • Larger discrimination range allowing for finer discrimination of high conductive targets.
  • Increased Noise Cancel range, now 5 manual settings, allowing greater choice of detecting channel. Increased Target Volume Adjust range, now (0-30), allowing better target response.
  • Threshold adjustment, with a range of -5 to 25, allowing the user to set threshold to level where slight variations from either very small shallow, or very large deep, targets can be noticed. 
  • Fast recovery Pin-Point with variable tone and graphical indicator. 
  • Depth indicator, updates continuously, even in Pinpoint mode.
