  1. As a result of the Minelab 7000 firmware update I had reason to revisit Xchange2. My story is that I had my main copy of Xchange2 on a computer that crashed. My backup laptop included a copy that didn't support the 3030 and 7000. I didn't want to loose the 3030 data so I renamed some files. When I used Google Chrome to go to Minelab and download the Xchange2 program a popup came from Google and said this was a fishing site or malware site and could not download the Xchange2 program. I had to open the Microsoft Edge (Exchange Browser) and get the file and install it that way.
  2. I've seen parts of this comment re-posted numerous times now and feel I need to clarify my remarks on the subject of warming up..... (originally posted here http://www.detectorprospector.com/forum/topic/665-my-take-on-the-minelab-gpz-7000/page-2 post 34) When you first switch the GPZ on at the start of a session, the auto GB electronics require the coil to be moved across the ground to get good averaging data to allow the detector to run as smooth as possible, this is over and above the initial GB which removes the bulk of ground signal. This averaging process can take 10 to 20 minute
  3. Greetings from my heartprofessorI got the GpZ7000 detector TodayWhat are the appropriate settings for the GpZ7000 detector?For use in a land where there were nuggets of goldDeep Time Sharp On the GPX detector 4500
  4. https://www.minelab.com/usa/go-minelabbing/treasure-talk/it-s-not-about-the-gold-you-miss-but-about-the-gold-you-find I don't hunt for gold nuggets. But like what I see here. Congrats Jonathon.
  5. Herkese merhaba. Şu anda minelab gpx 5000 kullanıyorum, ancak gpz 7000e'yi değiştirmek istiyorum ama nugget Hayır.Biz şimdi sadece sana sormak istediğim Bizans ve Roma parası var gpz 7000 Doğru seçim miydi? "Hello to everyone. I am using minelab gpx 5000, but I want to change gpz 7000e, but nugget no. We just want to ask you now have Byzantine and Roman money gpz 7000 Was it the right choice?"
  6. July 2017, is the latest update for the GPZ. However, this update made the Xchange 2 software program no longer compatible with the 7000. I find this to be very frustrating as I can no longer save my find or way points, as my detector’s GPS memory is full, nor do I have a way of downloading this data. At this point, the only solution I know of is to delete, which is counter productive to having an on board data log. According to Minelab https://www.minelab.com/usa/customer-care/product-notices?article=313853 the new compatible version of Xchange 2 is supposed to be available within the nex
  7. Hi, can anyone tell me what settings I should use on my Z in very noisy/salty ground? I have been working a patch and up until now the ground has been very easy to work, but now I'm into very noisy ground and feel I am missing gold. I have reduced the "Sensitivity" and running in "Difficult Ground Type" but still, it's too noisy to work. Any help will be much appreciated. thanks. OUTBACK54
  8. Dave and I went out last Sunday and had some success. First I heard a slight but repeatable whisper in the center of a flat wash. Dug down about 20 inches and got an attractive 3 gram nugget. I really am amazed I found a nugget that small, that deep Next I headed to the other side of little valley and hit a wash (tiny drainage) I wasn't expecting much but came across these 2 nice specie. They cleaned up pretty nice. Very spongy gold, again impressed with the 7000. Dave found a nice 2 gram sunbaker!! Chris
  9. I have been painfully considering a purchase of a 7000. Seeing the gold a friends 7000 is getting that seems to be out of reach of a 5000 is giving me reason for this consideration. However with the areas I used to have access to that facilitates the use of the large coils are being lost due to development and I would have little or no areas to go that there would be a benefit to the large coils. If Minelab would make a small coil like the 11 inch diameter that is stock with all the other models up to the 7000 it would justify a purchased. I wonder if it’s the technology in the electronics
  10. Seeing some barely-used gpz 7000's coming across the auction block. Weren't there early ones that had issues? If so how were these issues resolved? How can you tell if the unit on the auction block is not one of these? Having not owned one yet I'm a little behind and appreciate any feedback.
  11. Maybe a new thread if you have the time JP. "How to target large, deep gold with the GPZ?" Is it your conservative settings or something different again? How does the audio differ, etc? There are bits and pieces (linked below) that maybe all add up to an answer but if there are any other secrets you want to add JP, I'll listen
  12. Hello Johnathan the GPZ 7000 has been out for a while now, is there any plans to do a DVD. I could see how a soft ware upgrade could potentially make it harder to give any advice on settings as upgrades come along. Or is the whole thing a big head ache.
  13. I updated to the latest firmware in september, sunday when I was detecting I would lose my sound through the wireless, I plugged in headphones and no sound from the machine through them either EXCEPT for turning it on, and also when the WM wireless connects I hear that (but probably from the unit not the headphones) Anyone else have issues, I do see 2 other threads but have tried both fixes including updating again. No dice, need the GPZ! mlgdave
  14. With several GPZs working in a small area, is there a recommended auto tune procedure to tune each other out? Norm
  15. Just returned from my annual trip away (that's another story for another day), I've been out 3 times detecting since getting home and two of those were training sessions. Yesterday morning it was my turn to do my own thing for a few hours before the heat beat me to a pulp. A few minutes later and I had a plucky 1 gram nugget on a continuation of a spot I detected with my son Timothy back in July (got AU$800 worth off there for the session, much to the delight of his pocket book). There is a fair amount of trash and the obligatory shot gun and 22 bullets along with the added hassle o
  16. Well after getting skunked on my usual areas in Gold Basin today, I was getting the feeling that maybe I should try something new (I move around a lot, as people who detect with me will attest). If I'm not on colour or it feels wrong, I'll move at times several miles and start again..... So, I went to an area that I'd been hoping to try again after being chased out by trash last time.... it dawned on me today, why.... I got out of the truck, did a quick walk up to the side of the hill/bench and fired up Zeddie.... but this time, I thought... I'm not getting skunked today.... let's crank
  17. Here it is folks. Loaded with tuning tips! http://www.minelab.com/__files/f/254716/KBA%2024-1%20Basics%20of%20the%20GPZ%207000%20Technology%20Zero%20Voltage%20Transmission%20(ZVT).pdf "A significant technical achievement of GPZ 7000 ZVT technology was in creating the ultra‐stable transmitted magnetic field during the receive period, to ensure that the large reactive component of the soil signal, X, is not detected, in the same way that it is not detected in PI." Figure 2 shows a comparison between the ZVT VRM soil signal and the nearest equivalent PI soil VRM signal; both transmitted magnet
  18. Back in the 4000 days and older gent named Bogene (in his 70's I believe) came up with a method of detecting that is basically turning the threshold off, screwing the gain and stabiliser up, and detecting like that. I've had a dabble with these settings but could never get my head around the no threshold part as it just sounds so damn wrong after being used to threshold since Jesus played fullback for Jerusalem. Yesterday we were detecting and old spot and it was noisy. I turned the audio smoothing to low on a few occassions, but don't really like the dullness it gives so went back to the
  19. We'll i finally got to join the 1oz+ club!! My buddy Dave and i headed to Gold Basin for a half day trip. We hit our usualy spot and split up. I headed to a wash that i found a 5.4 gram piece a couple of weeks ago. I didnt hit the whole wash, so i figured id start where i left off. A bit later, i get a nice signal by a bush in the middle of the wash. It turned out to an 8 gram specie with some dark host rock mixed in. 10 feet away in the bank of the wash i get another screeming signal. This was the flat nugget, also about 8 g. I radioed Dave to tell him the good news. The next couple of
  20. Overall, the GPZ is an awesome tool and I have been extremely happy with it since I purchased one about 6 months ago. But I thought I would gather what things people wish would be included as a future option/improvement such as software upgrades/gps options ... etc. Maybe I will forward the link to their marketing department (since I hear engineers are so difficult to work with ;p) Please list only your top 3 wishes for improvement/options/upgrades in order of priority ... if they are the same as others then that is fine. It shows we want similar things. My wish list: 1) s
  21. Made it out for half a day yester to an old patch. My buddy dave let me borrow his big coil for the GPZ and i wanted to give it a shot. Good news, i scored 3 nuggets with it, bad newsI have a 9 in metal plate in my hip that sounds off every time i moved the coil to my right. Almost impossible to hold the coil far enough away to avoid the signal. Put heavy strain on my back trying to do that. So I switched coils and tried bumping up the sensitivity to 18 ground normal. I managed to get a couple more pieces. 4.6 gram total. Big was 2.2. I had found out my girlfriends brother is a closet pro
  22. Hi guys, in your opinion, what is the best vid on youtube for someone just starting out with the gpz? Maybe something that walks you through the start up settings and stuff.
  23. Hi guys, looking for some advice. I have been lucky to have a 3km river section in north queensland mostly to myself for the last 6months...it takes an 90mins to walk in one way...so the few ounces have been well earned! A couple of small patches off to the side of the creek, the rest has been bits from the shallow creek bed. All pieces with my gpz 14 inch combo. I run it in normal high yield until the constant hot rocks slow me down too much and then its high yield difficult. Average depth would be 4-5 inches. deepest 9-10inches. Most common size has been 0.4 - 1.5 grams (with a few under 5gm
  24. Wow, I'm sure others have found smaller (and I did find one flatter than this on Rye Patch) but Zeddie continues to amaze me with how deep the 14" coil will find tiny gold. My 5000 wouldn't have found this without the Sadie and not at this depth (I believe it was about 6" or so)... I don't mind digging up tiny stuff like this, provided it's gold and not the small tiny wire slivers I seem to find most of the time (black for contrast, dime for size). I of course didn't make wages, but I don't care, this Summer I've dedicated to learning the machine, not expecting it to produce so being ab
  25. Check out this week's Treasure Talk as Nenad Lonic details everything you need to know about owning and operating the Minelab GPZ 7000 19 coil. He covers ergonomics, swing techniques, field settings and managing different soil types. http://www.minelab.com/go-minelabbing/treasure-talk/in-the-field-with-the-gpz-19-coil
