Hi folks,
Does one have to ground balance if the detector has auto ground balance and auto tracking.
If so, how and why?

Hi Tom.  I think it really depends on the machine.  In general, if your machine has auto ground balance and auto tracking, then an initial ground balance on a clean patch of soil is a good idea and a ground balance after you change any setting can also be helpful. I recommend swinging slow so the auto tracking can keep you ground balanced.

The best advice I can give you is to visit forums that address your particular machine and see what others are saying works for them.

Thanks Reese. I sent an email to Whites Electronics yesterday to see what they say about ground balancing. Haven't heard back yet. I did find an 1890 Indian penny the other day. My oldest find so far. Am using the Treasure Pro and really like it. Thanks again Reese.

Your Treasure Pro has full Automatic Ground Balance so it is turn on and go. Some model detectors still offer manual ground balance but these detectors do so via manual controls not digital controls. If you seem to be having ground problems it may be that you have the sensitivity set too high. Turn it down a few notches and see if the machine settles down.

Thank you. A guy on youtube told me it could be ground balanced in all metal mode buy lowering the coil to the ground. If the sound didn't get louder as it was being lowered it was balanced. Then hit the track button and it's good to go. I'm not having issues and this relates to depth. How do i get the most depth. This was his answer. My own testing shows a quarter or half dollar at 8 inches in the ground no problem. Strong signal. VDI a little jumpy. But i would dig that every time. Still learning and i really like the dd coil. Happy with the Pro. Thanks Marty.
Tom
