TO THE OWNER
Congratulations! As the proud owner of the Garrett
GTP 1350 you have joined an international family
of treasure hunters. Men, women and children alike
have used their Garrett detectors to find coins, relics
and gold nuggets that are valued in the millions of
dollars. To get the most out your GTP 1350 and
treasure hunting experiences be sure to carefully
read through this Owner’s Manual!
Your GTP 1350 is the first of its class to offer size
information that will enable you to know more about
your target before you dig. With its exciting profiling
technology, you can know the size (Small, Medium,
Large) of a target before you dig. And when coupled
with Garrett’s highly acclaimed PROformance
searchcoils, you search deeper and cover more
ground per sweep than with traditional searchcoils.
Your GTP 1350 is also engineered with DSP enhanced
technology and is backed by 40 years of metal
detection research and development by Garrett’s
Graphic Target Profiling 1350™
leading team of engineers. It is unparalleled in its
ability to locate coins, jewelry and other metallic
objects at greater depths than any other metal
detector in its class. With Garrett’s revolutionary
Graphic Target Analyzer (GTA) display that offers
target acceptance/rejection, precise discrimination
and other key information, you can spend more time
digging treasure and less time digging trash.
As the one of the world’s most intelligent detectors,
the GTP 1350 is factory preset to begin operation
in the COINS mode. Simply press the POWER
touchpad on your new GTP 1350 and immediately
begin hunting without the troublesome interference
from typical trash items or ground minerals. Of
course, you can easily adjust the detector to operate
in other hunting modes.
Again, welcome to the Garrett treasure hunting
family. In becoming a part of this great tradition and
hobby, you have made the right start to successful
treasure hunting.

when turned ON and once when turned OFF.
If, after making adjustments to the 1350, you wish
to return to the factory recommended settings, press
and hold the POWER touchpad for approximately
ten (10) seconds, or until the detector beeps twice.
Graphic Target Profiling 1350™
11
Each time the GTP 1350 is turned on, it returns
to the most recent settings it was programmed to
use. However, modifications made to the COINS,
JEWELRY, RELIC and ZERO Discrimination settings
are not stored by the 1350 when turned OFF.
MENU / SCROLL Touchpad
Press the MENU / SCROLL touchpad to scroll
through the MENU options to make adjustments to
the detector’s settings.
Press the MENU touchpad to advance to each
item in the MENU selection or press the OPERATE
touchpad after making an adjustment to resume
hunting. The 1350 will automatically return to the
OPERATE mode if no touchpads are pressed within
30 seconds.
12
MODE (Discrimination Mode)
Press the (+) or (-) touchpad to select the desired
Discrimination MODE: COINS, JEWELRY,
RELICS, ZERO, or CUSTOM. The selected
MODE does not flash.
Garrett Metal Detectors
COINS MODE—Designed to eliminate detection
of lower conductivity trash targets such as
iron, bottle caps, most pull tabs and other objects
normally encountered in coin hunting. Some bent
pull tabs and pieces of tabs may not be eliminated
from detection. Some digging of junk targets is to
be expected on occasion.
JEWELRY MODE—Designed to eliminate trash
targets such as lower conductivity items and
bottle caps, while still detecting jewelry.
RELICS MODE—Designed to eliminate trash
targets normally associated with relic hunting,
while retaining good targets in the lower
conductivity range.
ZERO MODE—Designed to hunt with no
discrimination and alert the operator of every
metal target.
CUSTOM MODE—A Discrimination Mode that is
programmed solely by the operator. The GTP
Graphic Target Profiling 1350™
13
1350 is factory preset with the CUSTOM Mode
set the same as the COINS Mode. By using the
ACCEPT / REJECT touchpad, an operator can
modify the Discrimination settings to individual
specifications, which will be retained in the
CUSTOM Mode.
SENSITIVITY
Press the (+) or (-) touchpad to select the desired
SENSITIVITY level, indicated on the Lower Scale
of the LCD panel. The 1350’s Sensitivity setting
can be adjusted from 3 (least sensitive) to 12
(most sensitive).
The default SENSITIVITY setting is set to 9
(approximately 75 percent). It may be necessary
to reduce the SENSITIVITY setting in locations
where abnormal amounts of interference, trash
or other metal detectors are present. In these
situations, reduce the sensitivity until the audio
becomes stable. When searching for very small
or very deep targets it might be beneficial to
increase the sensitivity setting as much as
14
Garrett Metal Detectors
possible, prior to the point where the detector
becomes unstable.
AUDIO THRESHOLD LEVEL
Press the (+) or (-) touchpad to adjust the audio
THRESHOLD level, indicated on the Lower Scale
of the LCD panel. The audio THRESHOLD refers
to the volume of the background “hum” made by
the detector when no metal is being detected.
FREQUENCY
Press the (+) or (-) touchpad to select between 4
(four) operating FREQUENCY settings, indicated
on the Lower Scale of the LCD panel. The
FREQUENCY setting may need to be changed
when nearby electronic equipment or other metal
detectors cause interference.
VOLUME
Press the (+) or (-) touchpad to adjust the
VOLUME, indicated on the Lower Scale of the
LCD panel. The VOLUME setting adjusts the
sound level made when a target is detected.
Graphic Target Profiling 1350™
15
TONE
Press the (+) or (-) touchpad to adjust the TONE,
indicated on the Lower Scale of the LCD panel.
The TONE refers to the pitch of the sound the
detector makes when a target is found.
SALT ELIMINATION
Press the (+) touchpad to activate SALT
ELIMINATION or the (-) touchpad to deactivate
(flashing) SALT ELIMINATION. The SALT
ELIMINATION MODE eliminates interference
caused by wetted salt; a feature that is particularly
helpful when hunting on saltwater beaches.
Tone ID
Press the (+) touchpad to activate the TONE ID
or the (-) touchpad to deactivate (flashing) the
TONE ID. When activated, the TONE ID feature
produces tones of varying pitches to indicate
a target’s conductivity: high conductivity targets
produce a high-pitched belltone; medium
conductivity targets produce a standard-pitched
tone; and low conductivity targets produce a low-
16
Garrett Metal Detectors
pitched audio signal. A high-pitched tone replaces
the standard belltone when the PROFILING
feature is activated. (See Table on Page 18 for
additional information).
BACKLIGHT
Press the (+) touchpad to activate the BACKLIGHT
or the (-) touchpad to deactivate (flashing) the
BACKLIGHT. The BACKLIGHT illuminates
the LCD screen for low light or night hunting
conditions.
BATTERY TYPE
When using rechargeable batteries press the
(+) touchpad to activate the RECHARGEABLE
battery option. Press the (-) touchpad to
deactivate (flashing) the RECHARGEABLE
battery option when using standard
batteries. This setting affects only the battery
meter readings, not detector operation.
Graphic Target Profiling 1350™
17
Setting
Tone ID OFF/Profiling OFF
Function
All tones have the same standard
pitch. Tone duration changes with
the strength of the target signal
(e.g. the stronger the target
signal, the longer the duration).
Tone ID OFF/Profiling ON
The tone duration changes, but
the pitch remains the same (e.g.
a small target produces a quick,
standard tone; a medium target
produces a medium, standard
tone; a large target produces a
long standard tone).
Tone ID ON/Profiling OFF
The tone of the detector changes
to indicate the conductivity of
the target (e.g. low conductivity
produces a low tone; medium
conductivity produces a standard
tone; high conductivity produces
a high belltone).
Tone ID ON/Profiling ON
The tone duration varies with size
and pitch varies with conductivity
(No belltone signal produced
when Profile is being displayed).

Garrett Metal Detectors
OPERATE Touchpad
Press the OPERATE touchpad at any time to
return to the hunting mode while making changes
or adjustments during the MENU / SCROLL
sequence.
ACCEPT / REJECT Touchpad
Use the ACCEPT / REJECT touchpad to modify the
Notch Discrimination pattern, shown on the Lower
Scale of the LCD screen.
Press the (+) or (-) touchpad to move the Target
ID cursor to the right or left. Press the ACCEPT/
REJECT touchpad to activate or delete the LCD
cursor, located on the Lower Scale, directly below
the Target ID cursor. Press the OPERATE touchpad
to resume hunting when Notch Discrimination
modifications are completed.
The GTP 1350 does not produce an audible
response when it locates a target found in notched
(blank) regions of the Lower Discrimination scale.
Graphic Target Profiling 1350™
19
Modifications made to the Lower Discrimination scale in
the CUSTOM Mode will be retained when the detector is
turned OFF, until manually changed by the operator or
until the detector is returned to the factory default settings
by pressing and holding the POWER touchpad. Any
changes made to Discrimination settings while hunting in
all other MODES will be lost when the detector is turned
OFF and will return to the factory default settings.
Discrimination settings can also be modified quickly
when an unwanted target is located while hunting. When
an unwanted target is discovered, press the ACCEPT /
REJECT touchpad to create a Notch (delete the cursor)
for that specific target.
You may want to customize your Discrimination settings
when you are looking for a specific item, a lost earring
for example. You can use the matching earring to
set notches on your GTP 1350 to accept only that
target. Hunting in an area where a specific type of
trash is abundant may be another reason to customize
your Notch Discrimination settings. You can reject the
specific type of trash and continue to hunt with no other
discrimination, detecting all other metal.

PINPOINT (Coin Depth) / PROFILING Touchpad
Press and hold the PINPOINT touchpad to enter
the PINPOINT Mode and find the exact location and
coin depth of a target.
When the PINPOINT touchpad is released the
PROFILING feature will automatically turn ON
to provide target size information. To exit the
PROFILING feature, briefly press and release the
PINPOINT / PROFILING touchpad again.
When enabled, the PROFILING feature visually
indicates the size (Small, Medium, Large) of detected
targets on the LCD screen as well as with three (3)
distinct audio durations.
(See page 27—30 for more information).

Target ID Guide (Legend)
An illustrated Target ID Guide is located directly
above the LCD screen. When hunting, the Target
ID cursor will appear below the illustration that
most likely indicates the type of target found, based
on its conductivity. Three (3) color-coded bands
correspond with the Small (red), Medium (blue) and
Large (green) target size shown on the Profiling
display.
Upper Scale
The Upper Scale located at the top of the LCD
screen is used to display the Target ID cursor, which
indicates the probable identity of a detected target.
When the Pinpoint button is held down, this scale is
used to display the strength of the Pinpoint target
signal, as a bar increasing from left to right.
Lower Scale
The Lower Scale, or Notch Discrimination Scale,
indicates those regions where the GTP 1350 will or
will not produce an audible signal when a target is
located. Where a notch is present (those regions of
Graphic Target Profiling 1350™
23
the Lower Scale where no cursors are visible) no
audible signal will be produced by those targets.
The Lower Scale also indicates settings for
SENSITIVITY, THRESHOLD, FREQUENCY,
VOLUME and TONE as well as the depth of
a coin-sized target (measured in inches) when
pinpointing.
Numerical Reference Guide
The Numerical Reference Guide is used to indicate
SENSITIVITY, THRESHOLD, FREQUENCY,
VOLUME and TONE settings as well as the depth
(in inches) of a coin-sized target when pinpointing.
Profiling Display
Located at the bottom of the LCD screen, the
Profiling Display indicates the size of a target
(Small, Medium and Large).

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
1. Lower the searchcoil to a level approximately one
(1) inch above the ground.
2. Press the POWER touchpad, two (2) beeps
will sound to indicate the GTP 1350 is ON. Each
time the 1350 is turned on, it returns to the most
recent settings it was programmed to use, with
the exception of modifications made to the Notch
Discrimination settings in the pre-programmed
Modes. (See ACCEPT / REJECT on page 19 for
additional information.)
The GTP 1350 is engineered with Automatic Ground
Balance technology to continuously measure ground
mineralization and automatically adjust itself for
optimum performance.
3. Begin scanning by moving the searchcoil from
side to side in front of you, in either a straight line
or a slight arc pattern. Keep the coil level and at a
constant height of about one (1) to two (2) inches
Graphic Target Profiling 1350™
25
above the ground. Do not allow the searchcoil to
raise or tilt at the end of the swing, much like a “golf”
swing. This can significantly degrade detection
performance. Scan the searchcoil at a rate of about
two (2) to five (5) feet per second.
4. The GTP 1350 will produce an audio signal and
illuminate a Target ID cursor on the LCD screen
when metal is detected. The Target ID cursor
will appear directly below the Target ID Guide
to reference the probable identity of the target.
Highly mineralized soils can occasionally produce
improper Target ID readings. Raising the searchcoil
an inch or two as you scan over such soils can be
helpful. Remember to keep the searchcoil level and
at a constant height. Be aware that encrustation,
or patina, may also affect conductivity of a target
resulting in improper Target ID.
5. When a target is located, make two (2) or
three (3) repeated scans over it to determine its
approximate location.
26
Garrett Metal Detectors
6. Pinpoint the target to find its exact location. Place
the searchcoil on the ground near, but not directly
over the target’s suspected location. Then press and
hold the PINPOINT touchpad. While maintaining
contact with the ground, first scan the searchcoil left
to right then scan front to back (i.e. make an X) until
the loudest sound is produced, indicating the target
is directly beneath the center of the searchcoil.
In addition to the audio, the Upper Scale will also
indicate when you are directly over the target by
displaying the greatest signal strength, increasing
from left to right. Simultaneously, the Lower Scale
will indicate the depth (in inches) of a coin-sized
target. A target larger than a coin will indicate a
depth reading that is shallower than it actually is,
and visa versa for a target smaller than a coin. Note
that the Upper Scale will also blink the Target ID
cursor, only as a reminder, of the Target ID that was
last obtained prior to entering the Pinpoint Mode.
7. The PROFILING feature automatically activates
upon releasing the PINPOINT / PROFILING
touchpad after pinpointing the target. When the
Graphic Target Profiling 1350™
27
PROFILING feature is activated a target’s size
is indicated as Small, Medium or Large on the
Profiling display. Small targets include those which
are approximately 1.5 inches in diameter or less
(e.g. most U.S. coins). Medium targets range from
approximately 1.5 to 4 (four) inches in diameter (e.g.
silver dollar or flattened drink can.) Targets greater
than 4 (four) inches are classified as Large.
To obtain accurate size information, repeatedly
sweep the searchcoil side to side, 7 (seven) inches
past the center of the target in a smooth, continuous
motion. The full sweep motion should cover a total
of 14 inches (7 inches from each side of the target)
with the target being in the center. (See Figure 7).

IMPORTANT!
To achieve optimum results when Profiling:
• Isolate and pinpoint the target (Press and
hold the PINPOINT touchpad) to determine its
exact location.
•
Make sure you are only detecting one target at
a time. Profiling multiple targets at the same
time may produce inaccurate results; if
necessary, scan the target from different
angles.
•
Release the PINPOINT button and repeatedly
swing the searchcoil from side to side (not
front to back) using a smooth, steady and
continuous motion to Profile the target. Be
sure to make a consistent sweep width
of 14 inches. The speed at which you swing
the coil can range from as slow as 1.2
seconds between consecutive beeps up to
as fast as 0.4 seconds between beeps. If the
target’s Profile (size) consistently displays
Graphic Target Profiling 1350™
29
smaller that actuality, then your Profiling
sweep width is too wide. Conversely, if the
target Profile displays larger than it actually is,
then your sweep width is too narrow. Maintain
a 14” sweep width to correct this error.
Some targets may fall on or near the boundary of
two sizes. In such cases, the PROFILING display
may change between sizes on successive sweeps
(i.e. a screw cap may read Small to Medium).
When Profiling a target, a distinctive “chirp” at the
beginning of each audible signal means that you’re
achieving a valid target profile. The audio’s duration
(short, medium or long) denotes the target’s size
(Small, Medium, Large). The target size will also be
shown on the Profiling display. Targets that are too
deep, or too small, to be profiled are indicated with
a short “blip” and a blank Profiling Display.
30
Garrett Metal Detectors
OVERLOAD AUDIO
Very large and / or close targets may cause the GTP
1350’s circuitry to overload, resulting in inaccurate
Target ID and Profiling information. If target overload
occurs, as indicated by a machine-gun sound, raise
the searchcoil a few inches until the overload audio
ceases.
COIN DEPTH MEASUREMENT
Pinpoint the target as mentioned in the PINPOINTING
section. While still pressing the PINPOINT touchpad,
check the Lower Scale to determine the coin-depth
in inches. You will notice that coin-depth always
indicates the shallowest (most accurate) reading
and will not be overwritten by subsequent off-center
scans.
Graphic Target Profiling 1350™
31
JUNK TARGETS
The GTP 1350’s factory default COINS mode will
not audibly respond to most junk targets. It may,
however, respond with a signal that is not as clear
or sharp as that of a coin signal. It is recommended
that before digging these “blips”, the region where
the Target ID cursor is illuminated on the Upper
Scale is verified. Often, a junk target has been found
when a Target ID cursor illuminates irregularly.
It is not unusual for a junk target, such as an
aluminum soft drink can to give an audio signal
indicating that a good target has been discovered
due to its conductivity. However, the Profiling
Display can aid in the identification of such targets
before you dig.
Rusty iron targets may cause jumpy or nonrepeatable ID readings.
32
Garrett Metal Detectors
FIELD OPERATIONS
As you walk, scan the searchcoil from side to side
in a straight line or slight arc pattern. Keep the coil
level and at a constant height of one or two inches
above the ground while you scan at the rate of two
to five feet per second.
When scanning, do not hurry. Be methodical.
Overlap each scan sweep at least 25 percent of
the searchcoil’s width. Wear headphones to avoid
ambient noises and to concentrate on scanning.
When you are searching in the ZERO Discrimination
Mode, every metallic target will produce an audible
sound.
Graphic Target Profiling 1350™
33
TEST PLOT CONSTRUCTION
Your own test plot section will enable you to increase
your treasure hunting proficiency. Create a test plot
by burying several items at varying depths of one
(1) to six (6) inches about 18 inches apart. Include
coins, rings, nails, foil, pull tabs and bottle caps.
Bury larger items, such as a 12 ounce soda can,
approximately ten (10) inches deep. Clearly mark
where each article is buried and its depth. Scan over
them while carefully studying the detection signals.
Newly buried objects, especially coins, will be
more difficult to detect than items buried over time.
Experiment with various detection modes and pay
close attention to audio, Target ID and Profiling
signals as you scan.

BENCH TESTING
Bench testing enables you to test typical trash items
and learn about the discrimination capabilities of the
GTP 1350 before taking it into the field or attempting
to alter the Discrimination settings. The following
tests should be performed as shown below with the
searchcoil perpendicular to a bench, floor or other
non metallic object.
1. Select the ZERO Discrimination Mode.
2. Pass various metallic objects across the
bottom of the searchcoil at a distance of about
two inches. Each target will cause the sound
to increase, which represents true,
non-discriminating operation.
3. Select the COINS Mode.
4. Press the OPERATE touchpad
5. Pass the same metallic targets (as used in 2)
across the bottom of the searchcoil and listen
Graphic Target Profiling 1350™
35
for the sound to increase only when certain
items are scanned. Notice the specific
segments on the Upper Scale of the display
that are highlighted when various targets are
passed across the searchcoil.
6. Perform the same tests in the JEWELRY Mode
and observe the sounds produced.
7.
Experiment with the ACCEPT / REJECT
touchpad. Notice which of the 24 segments
are illuminated as you identify various
targets.
8.
Keep written records of the results and use
them when hunting in the field. Remember that
your detector is a sensitive electronic
instrument, but is engineered to withstand
rugged treatment in the outdoors. Use your
detector to the fullest extent, but always
protect and handle it with reasonable care.

BATTERIES
The GTP 1350 requires eight (8) AA batteries
(included), which are contained in two battery
compartments that hold 4 (four) batteries each.
These holders slide into the Battery Pack beneath
the Arm Rest assembly. When replacing batteries,
ensure they are installed correctly and the holders
are inserted into the case with the rivet at the
bottom of the holder towards the center of the case.
Failure to install the batteries correctly may result in
electronic damage to the detector.
The condition of the batteries is continuously
displayed on the LCD display while the detector is
turned on. Five (5) or four (4) bars on the battery
scale (located on the LCD screen) indicate the
batteries are very good; three (3) bars indicate the
batteries are good; two (2) bars and the batteries are
adequate; one (1) single bar indicates the batteries
need to be replaced. Batteries should be replaced
or recharged when there is only one segment
illuminated. Internal circuitry ensures the detector’s
operation and performance are not affected by
battery condition, until batteries are drained.
Graphic Target Profiling 1350™
37
The GTP 1350 is engineered with a battery saving
feature. If no touchpads are pressed within 30 minutes of
being turned ON, the detector automatically turns OFF in
order to minimize battery use due to accidental turn ON.
Simply press the POWER touchpad to resume hunting.
The GTP 1350 does not come with an on-board battery
recharge function.
Completely remove all batteries from the detector when
stored for extended periods.
Replace or remove batteries by following these
instructions:
1. Turn the GTP 1350 OFF by pressing the POWER
touchpad.
2. Slide the battery case back slightly from its normal
position beneath the Arm Rest. Place both thumbs
on the lower sides of the cuff with your fingers on
the front of the case. Firm pressure will then
disengage the case from below the Arm Rest and
allow it to slide backward.
3. Slip the two covers on the battery panel up and
remove them completely.
38
Garrett Metal Detectors
4. Slide out the two battery holders (which are
not connected by the wire) by tilting the pack.
Each of the holders contains four AA
batteries.
5. Remove the old batteries.
6. Install new batteries. Carefully observe the
polarity of the batteries and place them in the
holders.
7. Replace the battery holders in the GTP 1350.
Ensure the rivet on each side of the battery
holder is visible in the center of the battery
case. If the holders are replaced incorrectly, it
will be difficult to install the battery covers.
8. Press down and firmly slide each battery
cover into place.
CAUTION!
Use high quality rechargeable (NiCad, NiMH),
carbon, alkaline or heavy duty batteries.
Graphic Target Profiling 1350™

HEADPHONE JACK
The headphone jack is located at the rear of the
battery pack under the armrest. Headphones are a
valuable accessory of any metal detector to mask
interference from outside noise. They permit you to
hear small and deep targets that might be missed
when using only audio from the detector speaker.
Headphones are particularly essential when hunting
where noise of people and/or traffic is excessive.
BATTERY PACK HIP MOUNT OPTION
Hip mount adaptability is built into the GTP 1350.
The purchase of an optional conversion kit is
not necessary. Since no extension cable cord is
required, you never have to worry about winding it
around the detector’s stem or carrying it with you.
When you slip the hip mount battery pack off and
attach it to your belt with the built in clip, you reduce
the weight of your detector by almost a pound. The
cable cord is conveniently coiled to prevent tangling.
When you use this hip mount feature, the GTP 1350
weighs less than 2 3/4 pounds. All controls are still
40
Garrett Metal Detectors
easily accessible and your GTP 1350 display is
visible on the control stem of the detector.
The removable hip mount pack and built-in coiled
cable permit easy reassembly of carrying and
storage. When reassembling, be sure the cable
slides into its tube and is not pinched between the
arm rest and the battery compartment.
SEARCHCOILS
Garrett takes pride in offering you a wide selection
of searchoils and accessories that enable you to
personalize your detector for the way you like to
hunt treasure.
The GTP 1350 comes with the 7x10” Elliptical
searchcoil and is suitable for general hunting
purposes. Additional coils include:
• 10x14” DD
• 9” x 12” PROformance
• 4.5” Crossfire II
When changing searchcoils, be sure to hand-tighten
the knobs only. Do not use tools of any kind.
Graphic Target Profiling 1350™

MAINTENANCE
Avoid extreme temperatures as much as possible,
such as storing the detector in an automobile during
hot summer months or in freezing weather.
Clean your detector frequently. Wipe the housing
after use and wash the coil with warm, soap water
when necessary. Protect your instrument from dust
and sand as much as possible.
Your searchcoil is submersible; however, the control
housing is not! NEVER submerge the control
housing in water and ALWAYS protect it from heavy
mist, rain or blowing surf.
Disassemble the stem and clean it after use in
sandy areas.
When storing longer than one month, remove
batteries from the detector.

MIND YOUR MANNERS
Fill holes and obey NO TRESPASSING signs. A
sincere request that Charles Garrett makes to every
user of one of his detectors is that each hunt site be
left in better condition than it was found. Thousands
of individuals and organizations have adopted this
formal Metal Detector Operators Code of Ethics:
•
I will respect private and public property,
all historical and archaeological sites and will
not conduct metal detector searches on these
lands without proper permission.
• I will keep informed about and obey all laws,
regulations and rules governing federal, state
and local public lands.
• I will aid law enforcement officials whenever
possible.
• I will not cause willful damage to property of
any kind, including fences, signs and buildings
and will always fill holes I dig.
Graphic Target Profiling 1350™
45
• I will not destroy property, buildings or
the remains of ghost towns and other deserted
structures.
• I will not leave litter or uncovered items lying
around. I will carry all trash and dug targets
with me when I leave each search area.
•
46
I will observe the Golden Rule, using good
outdoor manners and conducting myself at all
times in a manner which will add to the stature
and public image of all people engaged in the
field of metal detection.

RAM BOOKS
Since your Garrett GTP 1350 is a truly universal
detector, all of the RAM books will be pertinent to its
use. Of particular interest, however, will be The New
Successful Coin Hunting by Charles Garrett, filled
with “how to” tips and success stories about coin
hunting. This is the complete 21st century guide to
searching for coins with a modern metal detector
such as the GTP 1350.
For beginners, however, the new edition of Treasure
Hunting for Fun and Profit will prove especially
interesting and helpful.
Treasure hunters will also appreciate the revised
version of Garrett’s popular Modern Metal Detectors,
a basic text that will help you understand all types
of metal detection equipment and how to use them.
A special section of the revised edition is devoted to
the use of One-Touch computerized detectors.
Where can you hunt? How about ghost towns and
deserted structures? You will read about them in
Graphic Target Profiling 1350™
47
Garrett’s Ghost Town Treasures. Also, Bob Marx’s
Buried Treasures You Can Find identifies thousands
of sites across the United States where treasure is
known to have existed. In this fine book Bob also
gives helpful advice about One-Touch detectors
offered by Garrett.
Since the GTP 1350 can be used for finding gold
nuggets and ore veins, you will be interested in Find
Gold with a Metal Detector. All hobbyists are urged
to familiarize themselves with this most interesting
and exciting aspect of metal detecting.

Garrett Metal Detectors
WARNING!
Any metal detector may discover underground
power lines, explosives or other items which when
struck could cause personal injury. When searching
for treasure with your GTP 1350, observe these
precautions:
•
•
Do not hunt in an area where you believe there
may be shallowly buried underground electric
lines or pipes.
Avoid striking any line known to be, or suspected
to be, carrying electrical power.
• Do not disturb any pipeline, particularly if it
could be carrying flammable gas or liquid.
• Use reasonable caution in digging toward any
target, particularly in areas where you are
uncertain of underground conditions.
