I have varied settings and modes (and even freq). What am I doing wrong?
Sounds like the different objects close to each other are causing the detector to report differently like iron masking does.
You could try swinging in a smaller space(wiggle)
I mean also swing slower too can help pinpoint things.

Detectors. Garrett AT Pro, Ace 250.. Equinox 800. Teknetics Patriot. Stavr scoop!
