To keep your CTX looking good, you can buy a screen saver protector for a tablet and cut it to size and apply to your CTX screen.....I also use Novus plastic cleaners as well.

+1

I used the anti-glare one from NuShield and it made a huge improvement as far as seeing the screen more clearly in direct sunlight.

If you change from ferrous coin/ ground coin mode, the numbers drop off from the 12 line and then when you use smooth tone, the targets blend and jump all over. I look for repeatable signals. They don't have to sound all that good, they have to stay consistent in their sound. I hope this doesn't confuse you too much. Once you get going and become familiar with time spent on it, it will be second nature or so I 'm hoping. I don't have a lot of time on it yet. Maybe someone who does can chime in.
Correct running ferrous coin will keep ferrous number on or close to 12 line.

High trash and ground coin ferrous number will roam more on screen,,,but nonferrous should report lower( less than) line 28 usuallY.

Ground coin,,,in higher mineral soil,,some depth gains possible vs ferrous coin.

This ferrous coin process is one thing that separates CTX from Etrac and previous explorer models.

There will be better days for sure. We got a new blanket of snow covering today, looks nice and clean but quite frankly, I am tired of winter.
