Garrett’s Multi-Dimensional Multi-Frequency (MD-MF) Technology provides deeper and more accurate target analysis and identification. Targets are detected and analyzed using simultaneous multiple frequencies as well as utilizing multiple dimensions of conductivity and ferrous (iron) content.

This advanced MD-MF analysis takes places within all three Vortex models. It is most visible on the VX-9 model, whose LCD includes a multi-axis Target ID with three distinct scales.


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 reduced for common ferrous items and high-tone targets.
