General Discussion / Mods for the 5000
« Last post by WesHawkins on November 15, 2018, 08:04:28 am »
  Hey Woody, just wondering if there are any additional mods for the GPX 5000 over the past 6 months or so.  Still thinking about modding my 5000 instead of spending 8 grand on a GPZ7000.

Thank you for taking the time to reply however I have been through all the available literature, printed them off, followed them through. This is why I asked for contact with a successful GPX5000 operator who has the upgrade and out there and getting results and who might share there information to help me with a problem or two (few).
Surely there are members here who might contact me!

I have had a bit of time now with the 17x13 evo on my modified 3000. In all but the hottest deep red ground I can run the gain at least 50%. I always run on low frequency as it still manages to pick up the tiniest metal chips, unbelievable some times. Dropping the gain down gets rid of almost all noise. Not bad for a detector that "wouldn't " be able to handle a 17x13 evo! It picked up a quartz specimen at an old mine that yielded just under a gram.

Hi guys, I am looking at buying a fully modded gpx4000, just wondering if the mods will work using other timings apart from in normal. Ie: sensitive extra & smooth with variable frequency or is just suited for normal timings.
Cheers Joeboy.

New Detector design / Re: Any news?

There is some news, just recently we were granted our Chinese patent and now we are patented in every country. We had our hands tied as we now have legal protection in China if any fake makers start up, look at all the trouble the other detector makers have had over the years with China clones. Not long to go.

The mosfet that is used a voltage limiter in GPX detectors can now be upgraded to a 250 volt 9 amp mosfet, I tested the newer p channel mosfet and the detector is a little more stable and should never have this part fail again.

We managed to obtain better batteries and a new high capacity one that sticks to the side of the detector. Look on the products page.
