V5 Base Settings

Post by Foggy » Sat Feb 14, 2015 7:07 pm

These are base settings for the V5 which will get you started, the rest is all about experimenting and experience.

Ground Balance using the following settings, if you are struggling to ground balance, turn down the gain and threshold further.

11 inch coil

Manual ground Balance, Auto Zones 3, Discrimination Toggle 3
Gain = 2
Threshold = 2
Frequency = Max/Min (Recommended setting Max)
Ground Fine = 5
Ground Course (use this to find your ground balance)
Tone = I use 6
Discrimination Level = Off. (When ground balanced, change to 3.2)
Discrimination Depth = off. (When ground balanced, change to 8.2)
Silencer = off


15 inch Coil

Manual ground Balance, Auto Zones 3, Discrimination Toggle 3
Gain = 5
Threshold = 5
Frequency = Max/Min (Recommended setting Max)
Ground Fine = 5

Tone = 6
Discrimination Level = Off. (When ground balanced, change to 3.2)
Discrimination Depth = Off. (When ground balanced, change to 8.2)
Silencer = off

After you have successfully ground balanced turn up your threshold until the machine starts to chatter a bit, then turn it down a touch to where the machine is quiet.
Experiment with you discrimination settings, small adjustments make a big difference.
frequency, Max = Off, Min = On: use this when suffering interference from other detectors in your area.
Experiment with the Silencer, anything past 2 will start to cost you depth, but the V5 is a real deep seeking machine, so sometimes not a bad thing.

I don't claim to be an expert, I have 60 hours of experience with the V5 and I started with the settings above then experimented until I found the settings I use today.
