The X-Terra 305 is the first device in a line of the X-Terra series of detectors. It is developed on VFLEX technology which allows the operator to use search frequencies of 7.5 kHz and 18.75 kHz. The operating frequency can be changed by changing the search coils. The detector is equipped with a large LCD-screen that displays information about the detected target and settings. 8 control buttons are located below the screen and by pressing a separate button the device can be switched on or off. The metal discrimination on the visual scale is divided into 12 segments, each of which can be eliminated depending on discriminator settings. There are depth (a bar graph for 5 values in inches) and battery indicators. The X-Terra 305 has the following functions which are helpful in search: VDI/TargetID, adjustable sensitivity, ground balance, threshold, pinpoint mode and noise cancel for minimizing electrical interference (3 channels). The sensitivity is adjusted in the range of 1-10. The Minelab X-Terra 305 has manual ground balance with the range of 0-20. The threshold is set manually from -5 to 25. A multi-tone (12 ones) audio response is applied for indicating a find and has an adjustable volume (0-10). The device has a 6.35mm headphone jack.
