MPS, DVT & SETA Technology

The GPX 5000 sets a high benchmark in gold detecting technology.  Featuring Minelab's exclusive technologies, Multi Period Sensing (MPS), Dual Voltage Technology (DVT) and Smart Electronic Timing Alignment (SETA), the high performance GPX 5000 is extremely capable of finding more gold than other brand detectors. From sub-gram nuggets to the elusive 'retirement nugget' and everything in between, with the GPX 5000, you can find it.

Eight Soil Timings

8 Timings make the GPX 5000 very versatile. It's like having 8 detectors in 1. In addition to five of the Timings found on the previous model the GPX 5000 introduces three new Timings: Coin/Relic, Salt/Gold and Fine Gold. 

  • Fine Gold Timing gives even more depth and sensitivity than Enhance — bring home more nuggets even from ground thought to be completely worked out! 
  • Salt/Gold Timing is great for all nugget sizes in salty ground — outstanding at the beach! 
  • Coin/Relic Timing is the deepest ever for benign ground conditions.
