More new features and functions make the GPX 5000 the best gold detector in the world! It sets the new benchmark in gold detecting technology. With an amazing range of features and functions the GPX 5000 is not only superior to its predecessor, the GPX-4500, it is in a class of its own. Featuring Minelab's exclusive technologies, Multi Period Sensing (MPS, Dual Voltage Technology (DVT) and Smart Electronic Timing Alignment (SETA), the high performance GPX 5000 is capable of finding more gold than ever before. From sub-gram nuggets to the elusive "retirement nugget" and everything in between, with the GPX 5000, you can find it. New improved electronics, new Soil/Timings and an amazing range of features combined with the legendary GPX ability to "see through ground" mineralisation, gives you a significant Depth Advantage over other detectors.
Using unique features, functions and industry leading patented technology ensure the GPX detectors run smoothly and quiet in even the most severe ground conditions, while still maintaining excellent depth and sensitivity to gold nuggets. Serious detectorists know that GPX detectors find gold much deeper than ANY other detector, in ALL ground conditions. That's why we are confident to say we have the GPX Depth Advantage. With more Timings than ever before, the 8 Timings available on the GPX 5000 change the digital switching and processing of the electronics in the detector. Each Timing has been designed for optimum performance under certain conditions, so it is like having a different detector each time you select a new Timing. Also great for the specialist relic and jewellery hunter who demands the best, and wants to recover targets deeper than ever before. Easy for the beginner through to the professional - you can switch on and go with six factory preset Search Modes and automatic functions. When searching for gold you need the best. If you're looking for the very best gold detector - LOOK NO FURTHER.
MPS, DVT & SETA Technologydelivers to you the most technologically advanced detector yet, making small hard to hear nuggets more obvious
New Timings make the GPX 5000 the most versatile ever. It's like having 8 detectors in 1. In addition to five of the Timings found on the previous model the GPX 5000 introduces three new Timings: Coin/Relic, Salt/Gold and Fine Gold.
Fine Gold Timing gives even more depth and sensitivity than Enhance - bring home more nuggets even from ground thought to be completely worked out!
Salt/Gold Timing is great for all nugget sizes in salty ground- outstanding at the beach!
Coin/Relic Timing is the deepest ever for benign ground conditions.
Improved Enhance Timing for more depth Improved electronics for increased target sensitivity and ground balance performance
