Full Three-Tiered MD-MF Target ID Scale

When operating in Multi-Frequency, the VX9’s Target ID system displays a non-ferrous scale and two ferrous scales to help identify unwanted iron trash. Complex targets may be indicated on both scales simultaneously.

Thin Coins Mode

It is the perfect setting made specifically for going after small, thin coins - hammered silvers, tiny ancient gold coins, etc.

Faster recovery speed.

Enhanced Response on select Target ID range.

Target Response was reduced for common ferrous items and high-tone targets.

Fast Mode

Designed for use in trashy areas, where abundant trash can mask adjacent coins. It is also ideal for use in competition hunts. Includes fast recovery speed and reduced iron volume. 

3 Levels of Recovery Speed control

Choose from three recovery speeds. Increased recovery/reactivity speed helps you more clearly distinguish adjacent targets. A great benefit for competition hunts and for hunt sites filled with metallic trash that might otherwise mask good targets.

Includes Beach Mode and Multi-Frequency Salt operation!

Utilize the power of MD-MF Technology and Multi-Salt operation. Smooth operation and deep Target ID accuracy along wet salt beaches and in the surf. Fully submersible to 16 feet.

Wireless ready!

Built-in Z-Lynk wireless technology means you can search without cords attached to your detector. 

Garrett MS-3 Z-Lynk headphones and other Z-Lynk accessories are sold separately.


Choose from five powerful single frequencies (5 kHz, 9 kHz, 13 kHz, 18 kHz, or 25 kHz) or search with one of two Vortex simultaneous Multi-Frequency options (the traditional Multi or Multi-Frequency Salt for saltwater beach use).


  • Choose from 7 options: 
  • Thin Coins Mode
  • Fast Mode
  • Zero Discrimination
  • Beach Mode
  • Standard Mode (ideal for hunting relics, jewellery, and most international coins)
  • US Coins Mode
  • Custom Mode

Iron Volume

Control What you Hear
Iron Volume allows you to decrease the volume of ferrous (iron) targets while the volume of non-ferrous targets remains at a normal level. Experienced treasure hunters often like hearing all targets, but will appreciate the option to decrease the volume of undesired items. Eight adjustment levels.
