Is the Target Trace feature actually useful, or is it considered to be a gimmick?

I use it all the time. I got this scratchy reading and Target Trace showed me 2 targets. Rust and silver. So I dug it. The canned ham key came out around 6 inches and the barber was down another 3 inches. The place I found it at has been has been hammered hard ever since metal detectors have came out.

Target Trace is a very good feature, I used it on both my ETrac and CTX3030.

I would like to know how to get a target trace on my Etrac?
Can you let us know?

There's target trace on the ETrac? :laughing7:
That is something I never knew.
Did it come out with it or was it a program upgrade?

No, my apologies, that is my mistake, ETrac didn't have TT, it has been so long since I sold mine and got the 3030 I just forgot. I loved the feature on the 3030 use it all the time and was disappointed it wasn't on the Equinox.

I thought for a moment it was an early Senior's moment. 🤣
