The large back LCD display shows complete target information. It has a unique control interface that combines analog and touchpad controls; adjustments can be made with just one hand. It displays three graphics displaying information about soil conditions: Fe3O4 bar graph, Ground Phase number, and Ground Error indicator. By keeping yourself aware of the constantly changing soil conditions, you can adjust your detector in the most efficient manner to achieve the greatest target depth possible. If you hunt in difficult soil conditions, the Omega is the metal detector for you. This metal detector model includes a static pinpoint mode for the ultimate in target pinpointing with this detector. A wide iron id range allows you to easily block out junk targets while still detecting coins, gold and silver. If you are coin hunting for silver coins or a deep treasure cache, the larger coil and deep mode will help you easily locate these items. Notch mode controls provide discrimination adjustment and variable volume by notch category.

It is equipped with an 11" DD , which provides excellent and pinpointing no matter the ground your encounters.
With the Omega from Teknetics, you get an 11" deep seeking that covers a large area of ground with each sweep. Featuring , you are able to filter out the effects of ground mineralization. A is also available. It is possible to reduce the sensitivity of the device or use the to minimize (EMI). The default on this is 13 kHz for maximum detection . This model includes a ground phase error readout on the . If the device alerts you to a , you can you can see the and program an automatic ground grab offset, positive or negative.
