When looking at the Minelab X-TERRA line of metal detectors a few questions always come up. One of them being "What is the difference between the Minelab X-TERRA 505 and the Minelab X-TERRA 705". In this blogpost we will answer this question.
- Adjustment Segments
- Notch Segments(the more notch segments a metal detector has, the more detailed the TID/Target Identification Detector will be)
- The Minelab X-TERRA 705 offers Gold Prospecting mode for those who might be nugget hunters.
- The Minelab X-TERRA 705 offers a backlight (you can continue to hunt at night).
- Ground Balance
- Tracking Ground Balance
- Beach Tracking
- The Minelab X-TERRA 705 offers Beach Tracking for those who hunt saltwater beaches
- Noise Cancel Channel
- Pinpoint mode
The choice is yours, when you look at budget and whether or not you do gold prospecting, beach hunting and need tracking, either machine will do very well. If you want the metal detector to make the setting choices for you (Ground Balance and Noise Cancel) instead of selecting them manually than the Minelab X-TERRA 705 is the machine to buy.
