I took it to the beach and used it three times. For many years in was in storage and was never used. No guaranty that it will turn on or that any of the parts will work. NOTE: The "display screen" appears to have been effected from the storage.When it was packed up years ago, I left the plastic cover over the display screen and it appears that moisture became trapped behind the actual display screen, and effected the screen. I don't know how easy it would be to fix it or if the entire screen needs to be replaced. Please Enlarge & Inspect picture #7 , showing the display screen to see the blurred/darkened areas that aren't displayed and can not be viewed. The picture shows what it looks like rather the unit is on or off.
I have to do this to protect myself. I remember when I bought this, it was expensive at the time. It has a lot of accessories including: (all of these should work with no problems but I must sell them with no guaranties) 1. Three (3) different Search Coils - 1 large Hot Head Coil and 2 smaller coils (1 Hot Head, 1 Crossfire) for more specific searches. The large Hot Head Search Coil has it's zippered protective bag.
The other two smaller search coils fit nicely in the carry bag (included). Plastic Display Cover with Velcro wrap (to protect the screen) 4. Rechargeable Battery Chargers (2) - when using rechargeable batteries.Garrett Metal Detector VHS Tape (untested) 9. The Ultra GTA 1000 is equipped with two (2) battery packs, each holding four (4) standard AA batteries. A total of 8 AA batteries required (not included). The detector is also designed to utilize nickel cadmium (NiCad) rechargeable batteries (Battery chargers included). For it's age, everything appears to be in excellent condition and well preserved (with the exception of the issue with the display screen, and now the sound) Please Inspect and Enlarge photos, as they are part of the description and also shows condition of the detector, accessories, and carry case. You will receive the exact item(s) pictured in the photos. If you have any questions, please ask before purchasing. The Metal Detector will be packaged well to help ensure it arrives safely.
