Large objects are found at a greater depth than smaller ones which tend to remain hidden particularly in mineralized soils. Buried objects disintegrate over time meaning they rust and give out major signals.
If you just want to find a smartphone, any detector should do it. Would like to search for what I can find but probably relics or the like. I think probably the new Minelab Equinox, but I have not reviewed that yet. I want to thank you for taking the time to to share your knowledge and experience with with us.
If you want to buy only one machine, and intend to hunt on land and dry sands, choose multi-frequency as it will have a better discrimination range. This may sound like a daft question to some, but I’ve found that proper kit makes metal detecting a more pleasant experience, but there’s no uniform, feel free to wear a mankini if you prefer. You never know what you’ll come across when you’re metal detecting and that’s part of the fun. It might sound obvious but metal is what you’ll find with a metal detector. Beaches are great places for metal detecting because beaches are regularly and actively used by the public.
YouTube features everything from reviews to testing to actual hunting scenarios, and everything in between. There is nothing like seeing them and hearing the owners talk about them to give us a great idea what the machine is like and how it works. If you have elbow or shoulder problems or another ailment that limits physical activity, it’s recommended to get a lighter detector. Some metal detectors are light as a feather while others are built like bricks and can be quite heavy. For those who like the best of both worlds, that may be a detector worth looking into.
This list may be amended at any time by the Director of Parks and Recreation. Easy to carry and waterproof, it is ideal for use in many environments. Achieve the highest sensitivity and reduce costly waste caused by false rejects. Control panels and switches that are easy to find go a long way in making this possible.
Random searches with metal detectors cannot determine whether a find is of archaeological importance, or if it is a recent discard. Unsupervised recovery of archaeological objects by untrained and unlicensed users of metal detectors can greatly diminish, or can entirely eliminate any knowledge or research value that might be gained from a particular discovery. Unregulated and inappropriate use of metal detectors causes serious damage to Ireland’s archaeological heritage. The categories of objects that are most commonly located by metal detectorists in Ireland, such as coins, tokens, buttons, clothes fasteners, thimbles, keys, seals, weights, strap ends and belt mounts, all fulfil the definition of ‘archaeological objects’ which may only be searched for under license. The unauthorised use of metal detectors to look for archaeological objects is against the law.
I have enjoyed working with Michael, Daniel and their team at Detector Electroics Corp. Would you consider The Garrett GTI2500 to be an out-dated machine? Assuming the phone is on the surface, you shouldn’t need that much sensitivity.

The Minelab GPZ 7000 is the ultimate high performance Gold Prospecting Metal Detector for both large and small gold nuggets in all ground conditions. The Fisher F70 Metal Detector operates on 13kHz frequency – good for coin shooting, relic hunting, and gold prospecting. Operating with Minelab’s exclusive triple frequency technology the Eureka Gold Metal Detector makes prospecting easier than ever before.
The Director of Parks and Recreation may approve use of a metal detector in areas where their use is normally prohibited, only upon special arrangement, in cases when a specific item is lost or to assist with official investigations. If an archaeological artifact is found, the metal detecting activity shall cease and the permit holder shall promptly notify the Parks and Recreation Department.
