Garrett Metal Detector Ace 250 - 1139070

Who said you can’t build an affordable metal detector that has all of the exciting technology you love?

With 40 years of engineering prowess behind it and a head turning sporty, outdoor design, the Garrett Ace 250 was made to perform for the 21st Century treasure hunter.

But don’t be fooled, this detector doesn’t win first in its class on looks alone! Its as new on the inside as it is on the outside.

Loaded with full range notch discrimination, pinpoint feature, graphic target ID and Touch-n-Go technology, the Garrett Ace 250 is the finest metal detector in its class.

It also comes with a graphic target ID cursor with 12 element GTA notch discrimination for greater accuracy, Coin Depth Mode, Tone ID, 8 Sensitivity Settings, 5 pre-set hunting modes and of course the most advanced LCD graphic screen for quick and easy visual target ID.

The Ace 250 is the most desirable machine of its kind on the market. And brawny, rugged good looks even inspired us to design the Ace Series accessory line.

From bags to caps, hunting aprons, digging tools and visors to earphones, you can be the treasure hunting Ace you were destined to become!

Of course you’d never expect a detector with this price tag to offer so much greatness. Just one more reason you need the Ace 250.

So hold on tight. The Ace 250 will take you on the treasure hunting adventure of your life.

Pinpointing with the Garrett Ace 250 Metal Detector:

Pinpointing with the ACE 250 Pinpointing is one of the most important, but simple to learn, techniques you need when treasure hunting.

Knowing how to pinpoint correctly can mean the difference between digging a six-inch hole or a 2-inch plug.

Using the Pinpoint Mode (Garrett Ace 250 Metal Detector)

The ACE 250 is equipped with an electronic Pinpoint pushbutton that makes pinpointing more accurate. Using this Pinpoint Mode is simple to do.

After detecting a target, place the search coil on the ground to the side of the target's suspected location.

Now, press and hold the Pinpoint pushbutton while maintaining contact with the ground and slowly move your search coil from left to right and then front to back over the suspected target’s location.

The maximum sound will be heard when the target is directly beneath the center of the search coil as shown.

Also, while electronically pinpointing, the Upper Scale on the LCD indicates signal strength.

When the greatest number of LCD segments (increasing left to right on the scale) is shown, the center of the search coil is directly over the target.

Pinpointing Shallow or Irregular Targets (Garrett Ace 250 Metal Detector)

The pinpoint location is almost always in the center of the coil. In other words, a target pinpointed with an Ace 250 will be directly beneath the center of the search coil (See Using the Pinpoint Mode).

However, exceptions to this rule may occur for oddly shaped iron targets, such as a nail or piece of wire lying horizontally in the ground; flat objects on edge; or, even a very shallow coin. In cases such as these, the pinpoint location may be closer to the front of the inner coil as shown here.

By carefully paying attention to the audio signals (and the Upper Scale indication on the 250) you'll quickly become familiar with how your Ace pinpoints deep and shallow targets.

Searching for the elusive treasure!

Bought this Garrett for my wife. She has quite a few treasure hunting hours under her belt. Sadly she has not yet found the treasure that motivated the purchase. Maybe she needs to sign up for a Treasure hunting workshop.

Recommended for Jr treasure hunters!

This cool entry level metal detector was all my grandkids needed to pull themselves from TV and gaming. The even went as far as mapping out a grid of my 5 acre property. They've found some interesting treaures.

Simple setup!

So easy to use. We had this metal detector up and scanning rather quickly. I think it's a good choice for Newbies like us.
