    Welcome to the hobby. The other 2 buttons are for discrimination and notch discrimination. They allow some metal to partially screened out. Not sure of the exact mode setting on that model though.

    Pretty sure it has the same features as the Lonestar with slightly different display. Here's the manual for it. https://www.detecting.com/manuals/ML....15-Reader.pdf

    From Reading Posts on this site I believe that I'm going to enjoy detecting very much.
    Thanks
    I'll tell you this. Ok so there is better detectors. However that doesn't mean that better machine will find what you want. I had the lowest quality bounty hunter out there... I found lots of good stuff with it!!! I found four silver coins, four silver rings, a silver brooch and silver bracelet... and $80 worth of coins. I only detected 3-4 months with that thing and did playgrounds around my neighborhood mostly. It's not about the machine, though certainly a better machine might help with things. It's about putting time and effort into it. Know that if you are out there a lot and dig and dig those signals even if you are finding lots of trash and are super frustrated... don't give up!!! Some times I felt like giving up... one day I was really frustrated because I was finding only pennies and trash for several long hunts. And then I found a silver ring... I went out the next day and I found another. Never give up! And you know, the reason I bought a cheap one is because I wasn't sure I'd like the hobby. That's the safe way to go if it's your first. Buy a cheap, easy to learn machine. If you hate metal detecting then no big deal. If you love it and want to upgrade in a few months... well then you have a spare that you can use with friends!!!

    Always check rabbit holes when metal detecting... you never know, there might be karats down there.
