    Re: Garrett Guys

    The 2500 does have a no motion setting, but my mind isn't working this early in the AM an I am not sure what you mean by TM? True all Metal? Monty

    Re: Garrett Guys

    True all metal is when you detect every piece of metal even ground minerals..
    Geologists are gneiss, tuff, and a little wacke.

    Re: Garrett Guys

    From what I gather, the modern accepted definition (in metal detecting circles) of true all-metal mode is one where the discriminate channel is either inactive, or doesn't respond audibly. ..Willy.

    Re: Garrett Guys

    On the 2500 it is audible but I don't think it responds to ground minerals that aren't solid metals except maybe some heavy deposit of rust from the halo effect? And it is outside and seperate from the discriminate modes. Just trying to keep up with the conversation. Monty

    Re: Garrett Guys

    Well, at least mine picks up ground minerals.(in true all-metal mode)
    Sure it will probably also give an sound on a halo.(= deep or old targets?)

    Re: Garrett Guys

    I have the ACE250 and noticed that I will get two tones on the aluminum cans. One tone for the end where the aluminum is thicker and one for the middle part. I suppose I could be missing some valuable relic with this method but it did not take me to long to decided not to dig when I get those two tones.
    "Imagine you can only know one thing in the world," he says, "and that one thing is that you don't know anything." Quoted by my son to the National Geographic. This is how he realized he had a brain injury from an IED while serving in IRAQ.

    Re: Garrett Guys

    Not too many relics would be made of aluminum would they? Aluminum rings up with the loud belltone on my detector. Iron or steel comes in with a much lower pitched tone and is more likely to be a relic. Now brass or copper might come in as a penny icon or even on up to the silver range, but it won't be shown as a coin unless it is very small..... or at least it does on my detector. I guess what it comes down to as we have heard many times, dig everything if you're not sure. Monty

    Re: Garrett Guys

    A true All-metal mode will pick up the ground noise, which a person (given that the detector has the option) then adjusts out with the GB, or ground tracking takes care of it. SAT can do a bit, but is a poor alternative. If a person didn't GB, the ground noise could very well overwhelm the target signal(s). ..Willy.

    Re: Garrett Guys

    Then I will have to learn to GB better..
    Even when in "Zero" mode I have trouble with hot rocks..So I will have to learn to GB.

    Re: Garrett Guys

    Actually, even with a spot on GB, there will be problems with hot rocks 'cause they're basically discontinuity's in the ground signal. ...Willy.
