Minelab CTX-30303
New software upgrade is now available !

Find more buried targets at maximum depth with the NEW Seawater Mode Setting and say goodbye to sore fingers with the NEW Pinpoint Lock option.

New Minelab Metal Detecting Game App for iPhone, iPad

Minelab epic find

Epic Find is the new iPhone app for Minelab.

Find treasure anywhere with your pocket metal detector! Minelab Epic Find uses your iPhone camera to simulate real-life metal detection, with special audio cues to help you learn and distinguish among the varying tones and values of different treasures like Golden Nuggles, or mysterious relics like the Sheriff’s Remains. Unlock five popular metal detectors from Minelab, the industry’s world leader in metal detection technology, and hunt across four worldwide locations.

Exciting Features:

  • Detect Mode: Use your iPhone camera to scan the ground until you hear or see a change in tone.
  • Pinpoint Mode: With your potential targets detected, pinpoint them by running your finger over tiles and listening for tones. A Target ID (TID) on your detector interface will help you differentiate metals and strategize which digs to pursue.
  • Dig Mode: Tap on individual tiles to reveal finds. Be frugal and accurate with your taps; you will have limited battery life on your detector, as well as fluctuating patience levels.
  • Locations: Hunt for pirate treasure among the tropical islands of Florida, western relics in the desert mountains of Arizona, war relics in historical battle fields of Virginia, and gold along the western coast of Australia.
