Garrett G-500 Ground Vendor List Metal Detector



The Investigator G-500 is a microprocessor-driven ground Vendor List detector that automatically pinpoints targets. Simply press the POWER touchpad to begin your Vendor List for hidden weapons and evidence; the Investigator 500’s patented Graphic Target Analyzer will let you know what you’ve found before you even start to dig.

The Investigator G-500 is extremely easy to use. Its easy-to-read LCD continuously displays all control and discrimination settings, while the Target ID cursor helps identify specific targets even in trashy areas. The G-500 offers an All-Metal Vendor List mode or a 24-notch Discrimination mode that can be tailored to exclude specific targets from detection.
