Garrett GTI 2500 Pro Metal Detector
with 9.5" and 12.5" Imaging Search Coil Plus FREE Metal Detecting & Treasure Hunting Accessories

When you find a coin, the GTI detectors will tell you what kind of coin it is: a penny, a nickel, a dime, a quarter, a half dollar, or a dollar. The GTI 2500 lets you sift out the trash and concentrate on the treasure, making the hunt far more productive than with any other detector manufactured! This is possible thanks to the secret ingredient in the GTI series exclusive Digital Signal Processing (DSP) chip. With some detectors it’s impossible to know whether a detected target is junk or treasure until you dig it up. Because different targets share similar conductivities, detecting what you think is a quarter may well be an aluminum can. The GTI 2500 TRUE size and depth technology enables you to determine whether a detected target is junk or treasure. Dig no more aluminum cans! Garrett’s GTI detectors are the only detectors in the world that provide true size and depth.

Here at Kellyco, we practically wrote the book on Garrett’s GTI 2500. From the very first day the 2500 come off the production line, Charles Garrett personally trained Stu Auerbach (Kellyco President) on all the features of the detector. Stu in turn trained his Test Team members who all "fell in love" with the 2500, which has remained a favorite to this very day. Thousands of hours of in-the-field use with the GTI 2500 has made all of our Test Team and Certified Detector Salespersons true GTI 2500 Experts.

Garrett GTI 2500 Pro Metal Detector

This is the most advanced metal detector made by Garrett,
yet it remains easy-to-use, quick-to-tune and almost completely automatic.

The GTI 2500 will do the majority of the work while you spend your time recovering old coins, rings, jewelry and other treasures. This detector incorporates more than a quarter century's worth of innovative metal detection technology. Backed by a powerful, on-board DSP chip, the GTI 2500's unique benefits can't be beat. From the graphic identification of targets, to unsurpassed depth capabilities and hunting versatility, the GTI 2500 metal detector does it all.

Garrett Metal Detectors One Touch One-Touch Treasure Hunting
With the touch of a button your detector is powered on, automatically reset to factory (or your) settings, automatically adjusted for ground minerals, and you are ready to search!

How Can Target Imaging Help You?

"Imaging" is the detectors ability to measure the size of buried metal objects and report that information to the user - and it is totally new to the treasure hunting community!"

"The Garrett GTI 2500 proves how much detectors have evolved. The GTI 2500 offers great performance, doing all the work for you without you having to be computer savvy. Graphic Target Imaging has made all the difference."
Ben Myers, Photo Journalist and Field Tester

By combining imaging with Garrett's DSP Circuitry, Power Master and GTA Discrimination, Garrett has built a treasure hunting machine that is light-years ahead of other detectors. Simply stated: Treasure hunters can search much deeper and more accurately, greatly increasing their share of found treasure with less time spent searching.

If you've been hunting with a metal detector that simply beeps when you've found a metal target of some type at some depth then you're in for a real treat. Both the GTI 2500 and the GTI 1500 bring graphic imaging to the hunt! It not only signals that you've hit a metal target; it tells you the size of that target, the depth of that target, and what that target probably is!

Imaging is another in a long line of Garrett firsts, and it's accuracy is second to none. The GTI series gives you both the size and depth of the targets you've located. The "Treasure Vision Screen" even tells you what you've located: a coin, a pull tab, a drink can, or something larger. That way, you decide whether or not you should dig it up!

If your find is a coin the GTI detectors will tell you what kind of coin it is: a penny, a nickel, a dime, a quarter, a half dollar, or a dollar. The GTI 2500 lets you sift out the trash and concentrate on the treasure, making the hunt far more productive than with any other detector manufactured! This is possible thanks to the secret ingredient in the GTI series exclusive Digital Signal Processing (DSP) chip.

This little bit of wizardly gives the detector the extra intelligence it needs to send back true image information instantly. With the GTI 2500, you can even come out a winner on "hunted-out" pieces of ground. Go back over it with the GTI 2500 and you'll be amazed at how much more treasure you can find and how much more trash you will leave for others to find.

The GTI 2500 panel display is shown to the left. On the Image Scale "B" targets are coin sized. "A" size targets are smaller and "C", "D" and "E" size targets are progressively larger.

If you take treasure hunting seriously, you need the DSP technology that's incorporated into the GTI 2500, GTI 1500 and the new GTP 1350. DPS Technology will boost your detection depth up to 20%, adapt to your hunting speed for optimum performance, as well as provide you continuous ground tracking. The Frequency Domain Analysis (FDA) will give you an advanced signal of all targets.

Regardless of how they attempt to illustrate and sell it, with a 28 frequency detector you get 28 weak frequencies. With a single frequency detector like the GTI 2500, however, you get one powerful frequency that's engineered to search deeper and find more treasure in the most common soils. Buying a metal detector based solely on the number of frequencies it produces will cause you to miss treasure virtually every time you hunt!

The 12.5" imaging search coil retails for $249.95, and is part of Garrett GTI upgraded pro package. Garrett's search coil technology is the most advanced of any manufacturer. Thanks to both the 9.5" and 12.5" imaging search coils you can search for treasure at depths greater than you've imagined. Garrett's exclusive Power Master circuitry boosts detection depth by 20%! For those old, deeply buried treasures and relics,the GTI 2500 with the Treasure Hound Depth Multiplier and Eagle Eye pinpointing can find treasure at depths no other detector can reach.

Bill Welch, long time treasure hunter and personal friend of Mr. Charles Garrett was recently sent a new GTI 2500 detector by Mr. Garrett to test. This was part of Garrett's ongoing product evaluation and continual Field Testing Program. Bill has owned over 27 different detectors and is constantly being asked to test and evaluate new detector models. When Bill mentioned to Mr. Garrett he was going detecting in Arkansas Mr. "G" wasted no time in getting Bill outfitted for his detecting trip.

First day out with his new Garrett GTI 2500, Bill Welch, searching an old house foundation in Arkansas, recovered a cache of US coins including large cents, dimes and nickels dated 1845 thru 1875. The coins were in a well-preserved, metal cigar box. Bill said, "the GTI 2500 is a very smooth operating detector. It is stable and quite easy to use even for a beginner. I had some younger friends accompany me one day and one of the woman was able to operate the GTI with ease. We hit a few parks and found quite a few coins, silver and deep ones among them. The GTI is an excellent detector for both the beginner and the experienced hunter."

Buy a Treasure Hound Depth Multiplier - Made for your GTI 2500

The Treasure Hound Depth Multiplier will find larger targets at the greatest possible depth, while ignoring small trash items. It goes as deep as 18 feet! The Eagle Eye front coil provides accurate pinpointing and smaller object detection.

Excellent Professional metal detector

Review by Kirk W on June 22, 2015

The GTI 2500 is everything Garrett says it is and more , I tested my GTI 2500 against 8 other top of the line detectors from different manufacturers and my GTI 2500 went much deeper than the other detectors and correctly identified the targets much better using the imaging feature, when I search with other detectors and find a good signal a lot of times they turn out to be tin can lids or galvanized steel but with the 2500 you can determine the size of the target and almost know what it is before you dig , also you can nugget shoot and relic hunt with the GTI , I own all of the coils for this green machine it is the most versatile detector I have ever owned , this unit is very sensitive to very small targets that I have to use a magnet to find them , once you learn how to use this detector it does so much more than any other detector on the market today, the only con I have about the GTI is the weight I never really noticed it , but some hunters will find it to heavy for them , I have found some very deep and small targets with this machine , for me this was a best buy ..

gotta love that 2500GTI

Review by Kenneth G on June 25, 2014

walked into the backyard to try out finding a coin and WOW// not only does it say a b target is a coin but I found 15 coins in the yard. 2 mercury dimes , two quarters, clad dime, nickel, and a bunch of pennies, some wheats.
love this machine,all you need to do is hit treasure talk and if it says its a B target you better B diggin. Can:t wait to hit some more good spots.

The Best Metal Detector

Review by Samuel R on October 24, 2013

I'm a Treasure Hunter since 1987. Since 1991, I decided to use Garrett detectors because they are good enough to find treasures underground. I bought my GTI 2500 in summer of 2001. Since that time, I love my GTI2500 because I never had problem with the circuits, and I'd found many coins and relics with it. it's so easy to use, and it is powerful machine to go deeper. It has many feature to identify anything buried.

I recommend the GTI2500 over other metal detectors brands.


Review by Melinda P on August 23, 2013

Fantastic buy! Will be following this brand.

Review by David B.

Review by David B on June 24, 2010

I have had this detector for several years and have loved every time I go out with it. I have a garden we use to test the ID of the coins and trash and is very accurate.I would say 85% to 90% correct depth, pinpoint and ID out in the fields. My detecting buddy has the Minelab Explorer and he constantly asking me to check pinpoint and size of what he has found!
I would highly recommend the Garrett GTI 2500.
