Maybe, maybe not. I've seen two bought together and one was deeper. Some detectors have an internal pot for sensitivity and it may not be adjusted right. Air test a quarter. I believe it should get around 7". If it does then I think it's ok and you're in a low emi area. If it doesn't and it's new then return it. If older and still in warranty get it repaired. If not those two then don't bother and get a different detector. HH

I've seen about the same. The sensitivity doesn't really seem to do much.

I started out with a Tracker IV as well and I do not recall it ever being chatty. I think I pretty much ran it wide open most of the time. Really was a great detector to get into the hobby with.
