Can the Garrett AT Gold be used in the Salt water?
Because the AT Gold is optimized to find small gold pieces, saltwater use in not recommended for this detector. Its ability to find small gold makes it equally reactive to the conductivity of saltwater. This detectors ground balance adjustment is optimized to provide the greatest resolution in the normal ground range and is not designed to address saltwater. The AT Gold will, however, perform well for hunting coins and jewelry on dry sand beach areas
