I hope chef won't be uspset if I post this up, but I too had my interest piqued by his post above, so much so that I went on a hunt for it, this is what I found, gonna give it a try on my next hunt to see if it suits my ears :;@

No secret in my settings and I basically only use one set up;
Disc out nails

DETECTOR MODE. Advanced

SENSITIVITY. Manual and as high as you and it are comfortable with try not to drop below 19

DISPLAY Smart

SELECT.reject nails only

VOLUME 10 max

GAIN. 9

TONE THRESHOLD 1

VARIABILITY 9

LIMITS 9

SOUNDS Conductive

RESPONSE Audio 3

RECOVERY DEEP on FAST off But if you get an SEF coil both off

If things get too noisy then back off either/both Sensitivity and audio gain.

And then it's a matter of practice, practice, practice, I't can and does take a good six months to learn the tones as these are the most reliable (it took me a year) so don't get disheartened if you think you'll never get the hang of it, it's a little like learning to ride a bike, at first you may think you'll never get the hang of it then one day "Bingo" and you'll wonder why you couldn't before.

i run open screen , nothing rejected , then use the edit screen and disc the top left pixel out ( this stops you from going insane ) , the rest of program is same. to make the learning curve easy you only need to learn one sound !! iron!!.... you dig the rest

I have had mine for about 6 months now. Quite similar settings to that 'one programme' actually but will do this one exactly at the weekend. I do feel im getting used to the tomes as sometimes i dig the really crap signals and am not surprised to find lumps of iron and other rubbish, i prefer the numbers screen though to the cross hairs.

Hi tone two way is a digger and high tone scratchy one ways are also....

Ok so i went out today and loaded those settings exactly..... to be honest i was confused as normally I was getting high tones for good target and low for iron and junk but today some trash was coming up very high on the tones. I was trusting the smart screen and the numbers but am I doing this correctly. I kind of preferred the old settings I had but I will give this a go when i go out a few more times and see.

Stop keep fiddling.
Start in factory settings (do a reset).

If there aren`t any finds there no machine will find them.

Once you start to learn the tones in factory settings then start making GENTLE adjustments.

Do not use any discrimination, use your ears.

Once you learn what is iron........ dig the rest.

Numbers are the machines "next best guess" and are pretty much no use.
