Experienced metal hunters can attest the effectiveness of the MX200E in wet sands in beaches and coastlines. However, if you’re quite new to the hobby of coin detection, you should practice first in dry sands and stay away from the coastlines in your first few search endeavors. Beginners often experience false signals on wet sands. So, try to get as much experience and skill in different terrains before moving into the frontier of water lines.

The metal detector screen works quite well on any fair daylight, though the LCD of the Ground EFX can be difficult to see in bright sunlight. So, you will need a cardboard attached to the side to act as a shade for the screen, as well as wear sunglasses whenever you search in high noon and the sun is up. This is quite common for other metal detectors and has been experienced by others who often use the device in broad daylight.

However, on dusk, dawn, evening or cloudy days – the metal detector works extremely well. You can see the crisp display of the LCD screen, displaying your info, with the data in viewable size. In case you drop your keys or jewelry in the dark, the MX200E should help you get what you need.

Keep in mind, to learn the device as much as you can in different terrains, so you need to know the different soil in your place. You can do some test by placing down targets in certain spots, then use the machine to search for them

in a week or two. Then see how the device perform as it looks for your buried item. You can practice with this type of set-up until you become familiar with the adjustments and settings of the metal detector. With continuous use, you should instinctively know how the device responds to certain items and different soil, in a new hunting endeavor in another place. The machine is quite easy to use, with good ergonomics compared to earlier editions of the series.

The detector should be able to detect quarters as deep as 10 inches, often providing the exact depth on the readings. Other worthwhile features include the GPS function, good balance, and nice battery life. It can even work in usual situations and impromptu searches.

One of the common problems by some people is dropped pendants, wedding rings, bracelets, and earrings in a deep pile of snow. The metal detector can work as just fine to help you find small jewelry to snow as deep as ten to twelve inches. So, if the weather is extremely bad, you can depend on the Ground EFX for some searching.
