I hope that you are getting along nicely with your 400i Muddyknee. The 400i was my first detector and I still have it today, I have a very fond spot for these machines and mine will always be a firm favourite.

Run it in jewelry mode with sensitivity down two notches in trashy areas.
But in 'cleaner' areas I run custom mode with disc two notches down and sensitivity one notch down.
On both settings I leave iron audio off,only using it to double check targets.
This machine loves shotgun shells.........

I find Iron audio useful in areas such as entrances between fields where there has been obvious agricultural traffic etc (tractor relics).
