The GDA XP Deus settings
Let us help you with your hunts by sharing our personal settings.
We hope you will try them out and see how useful they are.
I have a 50% chance of figuring out why you have come to this page. It is either because you are a complete fan of our podcast, The GDA-XP Show, or you are an owner of the XP Deus, such as Dave and I, or both… Okay, I understand the math there was wrong…
But with the settings I have listed here, which are totally checked out by Myself and also Dave, You will have no problems at all setting up your Deus for first, or even getting better usage from one you have had a while.
Now, these settings are ones either I have programmed myself based on the areas I metal detect, or were recommended directly from XP to myself.
This is my favourite that I came up with. I use this one for basically all terrain, as it is easily adjusted to suit the environment. Either dropping sensitivity because of trash, or easily pump the GB because of high mineralization in the soil. Every setting is basic, and only needs to be dropped or increased based on the area you are in. It is not only called the GDA (Global Detection Adventures) mode because of the podcast, but because it can pretty much be used globally, so the name just fit.
Here are the settings:
Main bullets are main settings, the sub bullets are in the expert menu under that setting.
This is a setting handed down to Lance from XP. He has found it quite instructional in learning how the settings work.
Use this setting to learn how each of the different settings affect the Deus. You will love how fast you will catch on, and be making adjustments in the field with this setting. This setting was the basis for the GDA Mode setting. And after trial and error, it was nailed down as a great setting.
This setting really helps in narrowing down great finds in an area filled with debris. Use this setting to really nail down only the best of the relics in an area. This is a setting that needs much use and practice with to figure out the tones correctly. The Audio Response is higher, allowing for faster target tones amongst trash, however it makes the tone weaker slightly. It also has a slightly deeper signal as well. However with the higher TX setting, the batteries in the coil will drain faster. Not for beginners at all.
