I love the machine but am confused on what setting are best to optimize the results. I currently am using jewelry mode sensitivity 80 f5 whatever that is and 3 tones any tips as im at a rally this weekend which is cultivated farm land any help would be appreciated.
I also have the Q40 and after playing around with the machine and finding what suits me I now stick to jewellery mode with sensitivity 70 - 75 , I rarely go much higher than this as far as sensitivity is concerned .I have had the machine for well over a year now and it is finding some great stuff and for the money , not a bad all rounder .
Your tones are a personal matter , choose which one that will suits your ears and f5 I would imagine is your fesen , I use the Q40 with the fesen switched off .
Another good source of information is to have a look at You Tube and track down Mud Max who does a great tutorial on all the tones , sensitivity etc on the Q40 and why he switches fesen mode off !
I would recommend his video for a more in depth look at how to get the best out of a great little machine .
