About the Product
The Go-Find detectors are lightweight and collapsible. The search coil is fully waterproof so you can search on land and in water. Simply press the FIND button to select from Search Modes and go detecting.
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.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Minelab Go-Find 60 (3231-0003) Metal Detector
  • Great for a beginner and works well for a seasoned veteran that needs something more portable than the regular detectors.
  • I am very impressed with the go-find 60. It is light weight, and very easy to use. This detector is an awesome detector for the money, both for beginner and expert.
  • Works great. Found coins already with it. Going to take it on a cruise and it's easy to pack.
  • It is a little more bulky that I imagined also but this is because of the coil. It would have been good if the coil folded in two and offsettable to be streamline when closed.
  • The only negative I can find about this detector is the coil shape. It’s an odd choice and takes a little getting used to but it really works well on the beach.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Minelab Go-Find 60 (3231-0003) Metal Detector
  • It's good, compact - great for taking on holiday.
  • It's lightweight and collapses down to a decent size, then when you get to where you're going it takes seconds to detract.
  • The fact that it folds up small enough to fit into a backpack is a big deal.
  • I was very pleased with its performance. It folds up small enough to fit in a larger carry-on bag, or can easily be packed in checked luggage.
  • I'm not actually so finicky but to me the balance when holding was feeling uncomfortable and not weighted right.

What customers say about "Detection"
Minelab Go-Find 60 (3231-0003) Metal Detector
  • It can discriminate between different metal's so reduces the amount of time digging, although you can't completely eliminate trash.
  • After 4 week's of using it I'm completely happy and found some interesting things, load's of coin's and even a few rings. For me I'd recomend this detector anyday.
  • It doesn’t work in all metal mode in wet sand but It does work 100% when you discriminate iron.
  • There are literally no false signals. Especially if your sand scoop is roughly the same size/width of the rectangular coil. I never miss a target.
  • The detector itself appears to be quite sensitive and on my first trip out with only this machine I was able to recover 3 silver dimes and 5 wheat pennies as well as a bunch of older memorial pennies.

What customers say about "Features"
Minelab Go-Find 60 (3231-0003) Metal Detector
  • The bluetooth and app worked as they should after I upgaded my Android version.
  • The app is great on your phone and it a great starting point if you wanna start metal detecting.
  • The backlight feature is also awesome. Everything functions as expected. I easily found 10 coins on the beach my first time out.
  • iPhone will only fit in supplied holder if you don't have a cover.
  • My only complaint is where you hold the detector. After an hour of use, it's was a little uncomfortable. I will probably cover mine with a foam wrap.
