Possible issue / question....

Post by Bambamsdadda » Wed Oct 25, 2017 6:21 am

My pointer seems to discriminate iron??? Yesterday I dug a target and found it impossible to pin point with the MI-6, it turned out to be iron.
Is there a way to alter these setting via the remote?

It should pick up iron, is the sensitivity set too low :-/

Check out the XP video with Gary from XP for a good demonstration on settings (on YouTube)

Or did you switch it on whilst already in the hole? Then it calibrates eliminating everything >:P

It doesn't ordinarily disciminate (not sure it's even capable of doing so). As Oxgirl says, if switched on next to iron it won't calibrate correctly so next time try turning it on a distance from the target. Never had such a problem with mine, so it's likely incorrect calibration.

Thanks folks. Fortunately I'm going out for a few hours tomorrow so I will give it a go and make sure I turn it on well away from anything.
