White's Spectra V3i programs for the UK

I am recently new to the V3i and find the onboard set programs confusing. Where can I find a program that is specific for our soil condition in the UK, without using all the whistles and flutes? My last machine was a simple turn on and go Red Heat (his first model). It is a basic machine that gives out a solid tone when a non-ferrous target is encountered, and a broken tone for iron. It is an excellent positive machine and I've used it for years. But now I've graduated to the new walkin/talking machine of the V3i. I find I am spending more time investigating iffy signals that, once dug up turn out to be either small iron or coke. I want to persevere with the V3i but, I tend to get disheartened and revert back to my old Red Heat. Does anyone have an all round setting range that allows me to spend more time digging up good positive signals rather than spurious scrap. Chris Hale.

To chrishales from the ferret take your time with the v3 .if you rush it you will soon get fed up ,I am still learning myself,after a while you will see it all drop into place,how to program the machine. The guy you met was malc Jubb a whites man he knows his stuff. Get as much practice as you can in the field,what ever you do you cannot damage the softwear you can erase and start again...Cheers.....

Hi there. Ramases progs. and the prog from Dave the Ferret work very well here in the U.K. It is also worth looking at "Garys detecting" prog for the V3 on the internet. Don't get disheatened the V3i takes a bit of getting to grips with but once there!!! I detected a small pasture field (30x50 metres) that had been done to death many,many times by myself with a DFX and at least 2 others (one with the latest machine from Australia) and in the space of an hour found 2x sixpences and a silver threepence all 1920's but it goes to show the V3i's potential!! The prog .I was using at the time was the stock C&J with the discrim opened up to accept -20 to + 95. RX 12. Best of luck with your machine and let us know how you get on!!
