Stick to dry sand if you can, garrets don’t like wet sand much, too many false signals. I’ve tried heacham and gave up. Found more stuff in the car park 😀.

Use the search facility on the left l;/ l;/

There are several threads that mention Heacham and might help you (slight caveat being that things do change so if post is old there is a chance it might not now be valid).


The Garretts are very good starter machines and excellent value for money. However, their weak point is on wet mineralised sand (as are most machines in that price range) so you might be better off on the dry sand or if on the wet have to turn down the sensitivity.
