Garrett Vortex Metal Detector

V9 VERSION

The entry Vortex model is loaded with features and provides fast, fixed Recovery Speed on adjacent targets. Fully waterproof to 16 feet (5m). Single a

nd Multi-Frequency options. Single-tier MD-MF Target ID scale. Three audio tones.

  • Compacts to 24.75" (62.86 cm) and extends to 56.75" (144.14 cm)
  • Weight: 3 lbs. (1.38 kg) with coil cover installed.

V7 VERSION

MORE POWER THAN VX5

  • More advanced. Includes more frequency and mode options than VX5, including the powerful Multi-Frequency Salt mode for wet sand and saltwater surf use. Two-tiered MD-MF Target ID display (with separate ferrous and non-ferrous target scales). Additional audio tones plus adjustable Recovery Speed.

  • INCLUDES BEACH MODE AND MULTI-FREQUENCY SALT OPERATION!

  • RECOVERY SPEED CONTROL - Select from Standard or Fast speed. Increased recovery/reactivity speed helps you more clearly distinguish adjacent targets. A great benefit for competition hunts and for hunt sites filled with metallic trash that might otherwise mask good targets.

  • DUAL TARGET ID SCALE - When operating in Multi-Frequency, the VX7’s Target ID system displays both a ferrous target scale and a non-ferrous scale. Complex targets may indicate on both scales simultaneously. More target information . . . so you can make better dig decisions!

  • WIRELESS READY - Built-in Z-Lynk wireless technology means you can search without cords attached to your detector. Garrett MS-3 Z-Lynk headphones and other Z-Lynk accessories sold separately

  • IRON VOLUME CONTROL WHAT YOU HEAR - Iron Volume allows you to decrease the volume of ferrous (iron) targets, while the volume of non-ferrous targets remains at normal level. Experienced treasure hunters often like hearing all targets, but will appreciate the option to decrease the volume of undesired items. Eight adjustment levels.

  • FOUR (4) FREQUENCY OPTIONS - Choose from two powerful single frequencies (5 kHz or 13 kHz) or search with one of two Vortex simultaneous Multi-Frequency options (the traditional Multi or Multi-Frequency Salt for saltwater beach use)

  • 5 Modes of operation - zero discrimination, beach mode, standard mode, US coins mode, and custom mode.
  • SEARCH WITH CONFIDENCE - fast recovery, speed, five tone, audible target ID, excellent detection, depth, and target ID accuracy, back to LCD for night operation, rechargeable battery with a built-in lithium lion (about 15 hours per charge.)
