This is the new leader in affordable metal detector technology, the Garrett ACE APEX Multi Frequency Metal Detector.
Garrett ACE APEX Metal Detector 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.
Garrett ACE APEX Metal Detector 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 ACE APEX Metal Detector 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.
Other Garrett ACE APEX Metal Detector 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 8.5” x 11” DD-configuration Raider search coil.
The Garrett ACE APEX Metal Detector has a rainproof control box, while its lower shaft and search coil are fully submersible. It ships with a mini-USB charging cable for the internal battery, as well as a Viper search coil cover to prevent scratching of the coil’s lower surface.

Think I purchased the apex in February 2022. Called Garrett with the serial number and it was manufactured in march of 2021. It was already a year old.
My first detector and really looking forward to using it. Appears to be very user friendly.
