  1. opinions welcome regarding the "best" coil-cover for the 19 inch. I don't like the stock cover-but, that was a forgone conclusion.. I am not sure of the choices or durability of the manufactured items... I think the lexan is durable but...................more weight on a heavy coil. I will say that using the 19 inch makes the 14 seem a featherweight...in comparison. fred
  2. While up in the Sierra for a WSPA Outing I used my gpz. I had not used it since I did the upgrade. When I pushed the map button the man-icon came up but there were no tracks. The unit would mark a point and display it but no tracks to see where I had wandered. I also noticed the unit would not return to correct threshold in a timely manner. Nor did the other functions always work correctly... two different issues I think. What say yea? fred
  3. So, just one more issue during my Outing... I have been in the habit of tossing my ferrite on the ground...foolish me. They break into many pieces...so no more tossing... I wonder if the ring can be super glued back to one piece and function correctly? Or is it more like a metal ring that no longer gives the same signal once the circle is broke? Or do I need a new one? so many questions.... fred
  4. Hi all, Got a new video up recently, but I say (old) as the footage was taken just before Christmas!
  5. I've had my Zed now for over 2 years and less than 3. It is still under warranty. About a year ago I notice the pixels on my screen had developed a line in the lower right corner. I called Minelab and my only option was to send back the entire package in the original box. I may have done this at the time but I would have to wait a couple of months to get it back as there were no replacements available. Soon after I called the pixel lines went away and I have been using it just fine. Recently the pixel line has come back with even more lines. It is just a little distracting es
  6. Editors Note: This topic was split from the following thread - http://www.detectorprospector.com/forum/topic/3923-semi-auto-gpz-ground-balance/ I believe there is a lot of reasons of trying to turn GPX into a GPZ. They wont be never the same thing since they are in different technology . But anyone would like to walk around with an more affordable machine that could pack a punch of the " GREATEST". Im someone who started metal detecting and someday looking to upgrade to a heavier and more powerful machine. So after reading the pro and cons of each one i would
  7. Went out yesterday for a full day of detecting. Wanted to try the new semi auto ground balance. Went with pretty much basic default settings otherwise. I have to say I was quite pleased with it. I was in one of my beat to death patches. Lots of magnetic iron stones, hot rocks. It ran very smooth. It seemed I could separate the targets very distinctively. The small bits of wire were a raspy on the edges sound. The square nails were bangers. The non ferrous targets were about the same as the gold targets. Had one really weird target sound. I always dig those. But I usually dig everything 9
  8. GPZ 7000 Firmware Installation Procedure (PC or Mac) 1. Download the desired firmware version from the GPZ 7000 Downloads Page. You can update your GPZ to the latest version or roll back to any prior version using this method. IMPORTANT: Ensure your battery is fully charged before updating. Do not turn the detector off at any point during the update process, or the update will not be applied. 2. Connect GPZ 7000 to the computer via the USB cable. A drive called ‘Minelab’ will appear. 3. Transfer the software update file. Open the ‘Minelab’ drive, then copy the software upda
  9. Got out to the hills for a couple hours today to have a play with the new software update on the GPZ 7000. Straightaway went to a spot that has variable hot ground that is noisy in the Normal Ground Type setting. The new Ground Smoothing with the Locate Patch option selected almost completely eliminated the ground noise, while still retaining really good sensitivity. It wasn't long before the first target revealed itself with a crisp, obvious response. Only an inch or so into the weathered quartzite bedrock, out popped a small, thin nugget: Next I hit a patch of variable ground tha
  10. Hi Every one With the GPZ-7000, 2.5 yrs on and only a single update to fix the GB , Is it about time that the next update is just around the corner ? What is it that you'd like to see in the next fix or performance or what ever etc etc I for one would like to see a similar screen used as the CTX 3030 that shows you what target is what , surely ML should be able to do that by now ? or can they ? Cheers Marty
  11. It has certainly been a busy year for me so far, with not as much detecting time as I would like. Still, I have been getting out a little and thought it was time to share a few photos. My first couple bits were found with the Minelab Gold Monster 1000 on some scouting runs. I am liking this detector as a grab and go unit for checking areas out quickly. I am not trying to hunt for max performance but instead looking to cover a lot of ground quickly to check things out. I have learned the GM1000 auto sensitivity actually suits me well for this. I just fire up the detector in all metal mode,
  12. Sorry about the title, I couldn't help myself with all the monster talk . This video is a bit of detector vs big coil comparison on a decent sized bit of trash (unfortunately).
  13. I've been trying for a while to get one from my dealer.I called minelab myself. They are backordered. For as good as your detectors are. Other little things you really SUCK at. WTF Minelab. Get me a ferrite ring and make me happy. You spend 10 K on a detector, but can't get a 10 dollar ring.
  14. Hi All I was hoping some of you might be able to clear somethings up for me please. When you GB, Do you do the "walk and sweep" method and then "ferrite balance"? or Can you only pick one method? IF only one method allowed, then how do you decide which one to use? Also, is there any "list" so to speak of showing different gold modes and ground types combinations to help know what depths and sizes you are targeting? Eg, HY/Normal = ? Hy/Difficult = ? Hy/Severe = ? General/Normal = ? General/Difficult = ? General/Severe = ? ExtraDeep/Normal = ? ExtraDeep/Difficult = ? Extr
  15. It's been and extreme wet season in my hunting areas for months! Back in the day when I dredged, I'd be jumping in the creeks hitting my known gold lairs. But, and extreme wet season for chasing nuggets with a metal detector isn't necessary for success. Wet soil means extra hot ground as we fight the minerals in the different soils of our goldfields. I swing the GPZ 7000 and like many High Yield/Normal is my favorite setting when the ground permits a smooth Threshold. But, for months I've been stuck in High Yield/Difficult. Using Difficult, means some different gold tones to store in you
  16. Hello folks, It's been a long time since I've used my GPZ because I had to move away from the Redding area where I was using it regularly. It makes sense to sell it and use the money for a new computer and engineering software for my business. The machine has around 200 hours and works perfect. It still has the original skidplate, so that gives you an idea of the minimal wear and tear. Can you please recommend a fair asking price so I can then put it in the classifieds with pictures? Thanks much.
  17. I purchased my Zed in mid-2015, and since then I have complained about the display being difficult to see clearly. Then yesterday I realised that it is a "sunlight-readable" display, presumably similar to what is used on some of the later Garmin GPSs. That is, when the display is in full sunlight it can be seen very clearly. I'm assuming most people here probably already know this, but I've mentioned it in case there are one or two others out there who are as smart as I am and taken nearly two years to work it out. Col
  18. Got out Saturday for a day hunt at Gold Basin, Arizona. Ended up with 3 Gold Nuggets, and a few meteorites, wish the weather stayed like this all the time ..... Dave.
  19. This only fits the newer Minelab CTX 3030 and all GPZ 7000 units. Most people like me probably only want a replacement stand but for $15.00 with free shipping it is hard to complain. Except about the stand being so flimsy in the first place! Minelab Kit part #3011-0283 https://store.minelab.com/product-p/3011-0283.htm
  20. I know how to use the GOTO function...what I cannot find is the STOP GOTO function. The only way I have found is to turn off the detector...any ideas??? fred
  21. Got out Friday, and decided to use the good ol Boat Anchor 19 " coil on the ZED. After finding the Specimen Gold, and into it 2 hours, my Bungee broke, and I had to go to my backup bungee, and also switched back to the 14". I was using the High Yield Mode with the 19" coil, since the soils here are not to bad, and I seem to get a little more depth using the 19" with High Yield. Dave.
  22. Does Minelab limit transferring the warranty to several new owners, or can you just transfer the warranty once?? Talking about the 7000. Also hearing from multiple sources Minelab doesn't really do repairs, they just mail new devices back to you if there is something wrong. ????
  23. There are a couple excellent photos of this product at Nenad's website.
  24. New Treasure Talk blog at http://www.minelab.com/anz/go-minelabbing/treasure-talk/gpz-19-compared-to-gpz-14-nugget-dig "The nugget was recovered at 22+ inches depth, weighed in at touch over 26-grams and was a beautiful water-worn crystalline “Herring Bone” nugget. A few days after Christmas I returned to the location and scored a fantastic 30-gram piece right out in the open with dig holes all around. I know for a fact that I have had my GPZ 14 coil over this exact ground, and only very recently. The signal was a real eye popper and what I would call an easy “dig me” response; more proof
  25. Do these GPZ19's normally false at the slightest tap of a rock? I'm not sure why they put a scuff plate on it, you cant scuff with this and it gets VERY tiring having to run it 6" off the deck, seems if this is normal your giving up depth... this is 100x worse than the piece of junk Goldstalker falsing one I had. All settings the same, with the GPZ14 on no falsing at all, nice and quite... 19 all but useless... is it so hot of a coil that you need to babysit and carry it above all rocks? If that's the case it's going in the classified section, perhaps it's defective... thx Jen
