How Accurate are Garrett AT Max Coin Readings?Updated a year ago

Question: How Accurate are Garrett AT Max Coin Readings?


Answer: Target ID can vary widely based upon the target's size and thickness because small, thin pieces of metal cannot conduct electrical current as well as thicker pieces of metal. In addition, mineralized soils can cause Target ID errors, especially for small targets. Tip: Target ID is most reliable when the target is centered under the searchcoil and the coil is swept flat and at a constant height above the ground.
