Three Tone Audio Target Identification System:

While the LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) is very accurate in identifying buried objects, the user in the field does not always maintain the display screen in his field of vision. Therefore, the Bounty Hunter Legacy 1000 features an audio feedback mechanism to alert the user to the nature of buried objects. This audio feedback system first alerts the user to the presence and classification of objects, whose nature and location can be confirmed using the LCD display. The detector will sound three different tones. These three tones correspond to the three target categories depicted on the LCD display.

The Bounty Hunter Legacy 1000 was designed under the supervision of Dave Johnson, Chief Designer for First Texas Products. Dave is one of the top engineers in the metal detecting industry. He has designed leading-edge metal detectors for American manufacturers for over 25 years. The Bounty Hunter Legacy 1000 is one of his latest accomplishments for the Bounty Hunter brand. Many of his design platforms are the backbone of several companies high end product offerings today. Pictured below, you can see that the engineering team works hard and plays hard.

How well does it perform on wet salt water beaches?

is this detector good for gold
Question by: lewis on Feb 28, 2020, 12:23 PM Link
This is a very basic model, and not sensitive enough to locate natural gold nuggets. It would be able to detect a gold coin if you came across one, but nothing smaller than that.
