If the detector emits false signals due to interference,
reduce the sensitivity until the signals go away and
Sensitivity is also the depth setting for the device.
Therefore, it is recommended that you do not lower it
too much suddenly but gradually decrease it to
determine the level where you are not getting any
interference and continue searching.

seconds later, the LEDs

and you will hear a tone
indicating that the device
is ready to use.
When the device detects a metal, it will produce an audible tone. For pinpointing the exact location of the target, move the search coil
over the target with short and faster/slower sweeps.
The most important thing to pay attention here is that as the ground balance goes into the right area, the device will start losing depth
for some non-ferrous metals except for gold. When the ground balance setting reaches the maximum point the device will detect iron
and gold but it will not detect some non-ferrous metals.
3) RIGHT AREA: Is used to eliminate high mineralized rocks and soils. If you are on a highly mineralized ground and the device is still getting
ground noise with the ground balance set at mid-level, turn the ground balance knob to the right in very small increments to eliminate the
Golden Sense ground balance setting consists of 3 different levels:
1) MID-LEVEL: Offers the most ideal and stable detection capability on different types of
grounds without sacrificing depth.
2) LEFT AREA: Recommended for more precise detections and for experienced users.
The device may generate false signals in changing ground conditions, even over holes
dug for testing. Therefore, if you set the ground balance in this area, you have to take
this factor into consideration.
After the ground balance and
sensitivity settings are
