Custom Program for "general searching"

Post by Frenchieboy » Sun Mar 24, 2019 8:33 am

I've bought a Garrett Euroace and a NEL Tornado coil to go with it so that I can detect with a "newer" machine than my old faithful CS5MX. I've been through the user manual several times and watched the series of videos on Youtube titled "Garrett Euroace Basics" a couple of times so this morning I am hoping to get out and try my "new machine" on some new permission that I got last week-end.
I like to play around with the setting on a new machine to try to "optimise" the performance of the machine so does anyone have any "favourite settings" that they use in the "Custom Mode" on their Euroace for general detecting on farm grazing land that they would like to pass on please?

It doesn’t have programs in the same way as a higher end machine has. I used to notch out 2 or 3 on the bar and that was it.

Hope you enjoy it. The Garrett was good on pasture ::g

Well pointed out Oxgirl, it was a poor choice of words on my part. What I should have said was what MODE do members prefer working in with the Euroace and find that they get most success with for "general searching" with on pasture land.

hello, i found my euro ace worked best in custom mode, same as the Regtons video, although you may need to adjust better with the Nel coil

Garrettoldboy, I have watched that video about using the "Custom Mode" but have yet to try those settings. Next time I am out with the Euroace I will give it a go with the machine set as per the video and see how things go.
I guess that half of the fun with a new machine and coil is experimenting with the different modes and settings.
