This is the new leader in affordable metal detector technology, the Garrett ACE APEX Multi Frequency Metal Detector.
Apex is packed with technology that will impress veteran treasure hunters, light weight, well balanced and simple to operate it is also perfect for people getting started.
Garrett’s Apex includes Multi-Flex™ multi-frequency technology, giving its users the flexibility to select powerful single detecting frequencies or simultaneous multi-frequency options. Moore described that these frequency options allow Apex users to adapt their detector to various ground mineralization conditions and to enhance detection of preferred metallic treasures. He also pointed out that Apex, compared to its competition, is the only detector now with such a range of frequency options offered at an MSRP of less than $500.
Apex offers advanced features such as a high-resolution ground balance option to help the detector adapt to challenging soil conditions ranging from saltwater to highly mineralized soil. Simple, intuitive menu controls allow the operator to easily adjust: overall target volume; volume of undesired iron objects; detector sensitivity; search modes; target notch discrimination; and minor frequency adjustments to eliminate any electrical interference.
Garrett’s ACE Apex includes built-in Z-Lynk™ wireless technology (up to six times faster than Bluetooth® speed), allowing the operator to enjoy the freedom of utilizing headphones not connected to the detector with a wire. Garrett officials described the new treasure-finding device as light weight, advanced enough for veteran treasure hunters, and yet simple enough for beginners to quickly master.
Other Apex key features include: a backlight to allow the user to read LCD controls in low light; a built-in rechargeable lithium ion battery source; six search modes to select from; a five-tone audible target identification system, coupled with large Digital Target ID numbers on the Apex LCD; and a new 6” x 11” DD-configuration Viper searchcoil.
The Garrett ACE Apex has a rainproof control box, while its lower shaft and searchcoil are fully submersible. It ships with a mini-USB charging cable for the internal battery, as well as a Viper searchcoil cover to prevent scratching of the coil’s lower surface.
