Watch the videos on the Garrett website. Read the manual several times. Ground balance, learn Hi-Lo and Lo-Hi tones, the the sustain and duration between the hi and lo tone and and wobble in the tone. A lot has to do on what you are looking for and where you are searching. If using in water: CLEAN, FRESH WATER RISE THE CAMLOCKS AFTER EVERY USE, BEFORE THEY DRY. Get a swing harness that is comfortable for you if you are using the detector on land or sand. In the water you don't need one.

Any specific questions?
