I think you have to have it in all metal mode to auto ground balance?

Metal detectors are great machines that enable use to take part in this fascinating hobby.

When anybody gets a new one, what ever the make, we are all the same ..... "Lets put it together and get out there and see if it will find the treasure that is hidden there".

We all do it. I am guilty as charged ;;z ;;z rl;

Then we wonder why its not doing exactly what we expected. :-/

Well I will give you a little tip that most ignore ... READ THE MANUAL.
Then a second tip ... READ THE MANUAL AGAIN.
Then a third tip, guess what? .... READ THE MANUAL AGAIN.

Its amazing what it contains and how much better the detector works after you have read it a few times.

Then go out and find that hidden treasure ::g
Once you get going you will find its a great hobby.

I have not used the Quest machines but know they have a good reputation, so once you know what you are doing you will be fine.

If still stuck after reading the manual, ask again and give a bit more information if you can like what mode you were using.

please remember to post you finds and stories, but do not expect wonderful items to start with and become dispondent if initially you find mainly rubbish ... we all did to start with ... and sadly still often do.
