Hi Scorpio. I just joined this morning and found a forum for my machine, the Garrett AT Pro. I've had it about a month now and have read the booklet, watched the video (several times, each), and am now to the point I am confident in finding my target. I need to work on pinpointing with this thing because so far, it hasn't been on the mark, even though I have reviewed the techniques and am certain I am doing it correctly. If not for a hand held pinpointer, I would be digging all day! What I need to do now is do the testing in all modes with different materials and coins. Maybe I should have done that first, but I didn't want to get too confident too soon. I saw a post of yours that stated you have had this machine for several years. I want to find raw gold, along with everything else. I thought I would say hello and ask you if you might have any advice for me other than what I have done so far. I would appreciate it very much, if you have the time. Thanks!
