The Silent Motion Mode is a filter system meant to literally silence the detector on everything, but the biggest of non-ferrous target signals one can hope to find. This filter is used only by hunters for legendary buckets of gold stash as they are not interested in any small or medium targets of any kind.nexus john wrote: ↑Mon Jul 17, 2017 5:03 pmJust bought a nexus mkii with 9 inch coil it won't b here till I get home from holidays but was wondering what the silent motion is as it says gets rid of metal interference and do people use this mode or stick with standard mode and which one they think is best.And if possible what's the best basic set up to start with or stick to auto for a few weeks would be great to here from some users cheers
Silent Motion Mode would not be very useful for users that are after the everyday finds as it will require extremely slow work to get the smaller stuff with it.
The Silent Motion will work for just about anything, but you have to go very very slow with the detector swings in this mode. Also in muddy soil the Silent Motion will be inhibited as the discrimination becomes more difficult in such cases.
The Silent Motion should be quite good for use on the sandy beach since there is no soil problems, but honestly I have never tested it there as it was not developed for that purpose.
