Choose from 10 customisable Search Modes. Five of these modes are preset to get you started (Coins, Beach, Relic, Silver and High Trash). Each Search Mode has two adjustable discrimination patterns.
Set up your detector for the most convenient operation with your preferred options. (E.g. Wireless, Backlight, GPS, Locality, Time Zone and measurement Units.)
Customise the Map and Detect screens to display the information you want see. (E.g. Large ID Panel, Navigation Tool, Sensitivity Panel and GPS coordinates.)
Easily access and sort your detecting and location data for quick reference in the field. View the details and navigate to your saved WayPoints, FindPoints, and GeoHunts.
Also gives options for language selection and detector reset.
Manual and Automatic Sensitivity options to maximise detection depth in all ground conditions.
Manual and Automatic Noise Cancel options to minimise external interference. This ensures faint target signals can be heard.
Improved ability to effectively 'see through' heavily mineralised ground. This can enable accurate detection at greater depth in these conditions.
Threshold and Volume options to optimise Audio settings for your personal hearing and detecting surroundings.
Select from many functions and assign your favourite 'shortcut'.
Your world of discovery can now be simply managed on your PC. XChange 2 allows you to store and retrieve detecting data, and also display this on Google Maps.

Customise Tone ID Profiles by changing the size and frequency of each section.
Then download to your CTX 3030 for advanced detecting!
Personalize your CTX 3030 even further by adjusting univeral detector settings such as Audio, Sensitivity, Backlight, Wireless and GPS.
With FBS 2, Smartfind 2, GPSi and Wi-Stream, Minelab takes the World's Best Metal Detection Technologies to the next level of performance.
FBS 2 combines Minelab's FBS multiple frequency rectangular-wave transmission (1.5 kHz –100 kHz) with advanced digital coil-to-detector communications.
The precisely calibrated smart coils and detector electronics allow advanced signal analysis for more accurate detection.
Smartfind 2 greatly enhances Minelab's FeCo Discrimination to analyse and display a target's Ferrous (Fe) and Conductive (Co) properties on a full colour LCD.
Ultra-fast microcontrollers carry out digital signal processing to provide significantly improved target separation.
GPSi uses the high performance and flexibility of a u-blox GPS positioning engine to seamlessly integrate location and time data with detector settings and target information.
This creates WayPoint, FindPoint and GeoHunt files that are compatible with XChange 2.
Wi-Stream uses efficient low-power digital audio transmission to achieve no perceivable audio time lag (<10 ms) from the CTX 3030 to the WM 10.
With multiple channel capability, this wireless technology provides reliable communication with maximum sound quality.
The waterproof 6-inch round Double-D coil is very sensitive to small targets, and perfect for finding treasure in high trash areas. It is also ideal for maneuvering in difficult terrain. A protective skidplate is included.
The waterproof 17 × 13-inch elliptical Double-D coil provides maximum depth for specialised treasure hunting. It is also great for wide ground coverage in open spaces. A protective skidplate is included.
These fully submersible headphones provide excellent audio for all weather conditions and underwater use.
This module provides clear wireless audio without any perceivable time delay. Use the built-in speaker or your choice of headphones.
