Best GPZ 7000 settings

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

So many settings for the GPZ 7000 trying to find out what works best at Gold Basin. Would anyone have Steve Mac Daddys go big settings?

EACH AREA IS DIFFERENT, and that being the case it also matters which mode you are hunting in as to what other adjustments in Sensitivity etc. will be done by the operator. Didn't the guy you got it from offer training Sonny? Anyway there is no "best" all around setting on the GPZ or the GPX detectors as it very much depends on where you are hunting, depth of the ground and which coil, and which mode you are running in. I use deeper ground settings in most of the Gold basin areas unless I am in a shallow wash then I may switch back into "High Yield" 

One thing to remember with the 7000 as well as GPX is it must be set up to match hunting and ground conditions as each mode will hear less or more of certain sized targets either shallow or deep and a feller hunting deep ground at gold basin in "High Yield"  will leave deep larger targets for me, but on the other hand in shallower ground of one foot of less the person in "High Yield" will hear smaller nuggets much deeper than I would if I stayed in the "General" setting.

READ / TEST /DIG TARGETS .... rinse and repeat.  You have to do this to have confidence or you will keep second guessing yourself.

And of course ...  What Bill said :4chsmu1:

My two cents... difficult and audio smoothing will loose faint targets. In many cases it's better to lower the sensitivity and stay in normal than move to difficult. In gold basin I hunt in normal ground, sensitivity 10, audio smoothing off, general, and a very low threshold of around 5. I will change settings depending on emi and ground conditions but this is where I start. Good luck to you!

Hi All,

Thanks for the help with the GPZ ! I have been trying different settings with great success. I like to run the machine with hot settings sen 18-20, threshold 15-18. I tried threshold 1-5 but found that a higher threshold picks up the small gold better for me.I also found that if I slow down walking and move the coil slower it makes a big difference.

More sage words were never spoken. I love following behind those who appear to have somewhere else to go!:old:

I whole-heartedly agree to slow down.  This is probably the single best thing you can do to really get the most out of the GPZ.  IMO.  Most ground noise I run into, I can still stay in Normal if I slow down even more.

The best setting for maximum punch and bang , if ground allows,  is run Normal ground, instead of difficult.
