Minelab E-Trac Metal Detector with USB Port

The Minelab E-TRAC takes metal detecting to new levels of technological achievement! The first metal detector that you can connect to your home computer to download and upload your settings. You can even exchange custom settings with your friends! There's no limit to the number you can store on your PC so make the most of your E-TRAC and never worry about losing your successful settings again! However, you do not need a computer at all to use this detector. The capability is just there for people who want it.

The Minelab E-TRAC is based on the hugely popular Explorer series but is not just an Explorer with a USB port. In particular the E-TRAC represents a re-thinking of how the target information should be displayed. Both the conductivity and ferrous readings now start in the upper left hand corner of the screen, with conductivity extending to 50 at the far right, and ferrous extending to 35 at the bottom of the screen. The screen itself is larger and has better resolution. The control panel layout and menu structure are all redesigned. The Minelab E-TRAC is so different from what some may expect that we highly recommend downloading and reading the Owner's Manual from the link below to understand just how different this detector is from what Minelab has produced in the past.

A note from expert detectorist Steve Herschbach: "I think that sometimes people get scared off by detectors like the E-TRAC because they think it will be hard to learn. Surely all those settings will confuse people! But the fact is for a person who wants to coin hunt with their new E-TRAC all they need to do is turn it on, push the Noise Cancel button (the one on the far right), wait 30 seconds, and go detecting! If the detector sounds off on a target with a good, solid sound, dig it up. That is all there is to it. You can learn the extra features whenever you are ready but there is no reason to not get one of the best detectors on the market and just go use it"!
