You can change the definition and brightness of the screen. Check in the manual.

Take the protective sticky screen cover off and that helps massively
Enjoy the Etrac

Use your ears...... forget the screen.
The screen will only give you a "best guess average" where as the tone is much,much more subtle. You`ll soon learn the tones mostly by digging.

Happy new Etrac! I use smooth,the good signals really shine through. Regarding blanking out a line to the left...I'd leave it,true ,foil will show here but you should dig as it's not always foil..

i am sure you will enjoy the Etrac most people who have one and used them for a while run it as hot as you can ,most do sens at manual 30 if its just a tad noisy just back it off a little ,i liked running mine around 27/28 .now i have moved on to a CTX and thats another step up great machine but at a cost

good luck with using your new E-Trac there Jamie
Minelab make good machines as I too had a Sov and also had a 705 before that
I have thought periodically about getting either the E-Trac or a CTX3030 but every time I save the money up my missus finds something else to do with the money
know how you feel matey
Keep us posted with how you are getting on with it please
