Minelab's New & Updated Mechanical Design Improvements:


At ModernMetalDetectors.com we carry the 2022 Version of the Minelab CTX 3030. It comes equipped with a new updated battery sand seal and armrest lock! Current owners wishing to upgrade their existing detector should contact their local Minelab office direct for upgrade options and pricing on upgrading to the Minelab CTX 3030 V2.

  • New Battery Sand Seal: The battery now has a sand seal fitted that minimizes the ingress of sand that could potentially compromise the internal ‘o’-ring waterproofing rubber seal.

  • New Armrest Lock: The ‘turn’ mechanism that could become loose after repeated use has been replaced with a ‘push’ mechanism for increased reliability and ease of adjusting.

Since the CTX 3030 was launched in 2012, Minelab has continued to refine the mechanical platform throughout the development of the GPZ 7000 gold detector, launched in 2015. While many of these ongoing design changes were specific to the GPZ 7000 only, two of the improvements are universal across both products and will now be available on all new CTX 3030 detectors. 

 

Features

  • Waterproof - The CCTX 3030 is waterproof to 3m (10ft) Which means you can go detecting anywhere with this all-around treasure detector. You have the flexibility of land and underwater detecting. 
  • Wireless Audio - Have the freedom to detect without your headphones being attached to your detector. With the WM 10 Wireless Module, you have the choice of using the built-in speaker, supplied headphones, or your own favorite headphones.
  • Ultimate FeCo Discrimination - With Ferrous (Fe) and Conductivity (Co) target resolution, plus adjustable Tone ID Profiles, you can detect (accept) the targets you want to and ignore (reject) the rest. With Target Trace and Target Separation, you can identify multiple targets simultaneously for accurate detecting results.
  • Full Colour Display - The full-color LCD clearly displays more target information than ever before and greatly enhances the CTX 3030’s discrimination capabilities.
  • GPS Locating - See where you have been, and where you are going, by using the Map screen and Navigation Tool.
  • Geo-Trails - show the ground that you have already covered.

  • Quick Menus (and smart functions) - Quick Menus give you easy access to ‘on the go’ adjustments. Smart functions (Sensitivity, Noise Cancel, Audio, Ground Balance) and a customizable User button allow fast changes to your most used controls while detecting.
  • Ergonomic Design - The well-balanced design has all the battery weight behind the armrest for comfortable detecting. The detector is fully adjustable to suit your needs.
  • Multi-Languages - You can choose from 9 different languages: English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, or Turkish.

    Our goal is to keep the ordering process as simple as possible. We offer free shipping on all orders over $99. Shipping times vary from 1-3 business days and delivery time varies between 3-7 business days.

    Please read through this instructional guide so you can understand how the process works and what you should expect to happen once you place your order with us.

    Order Confirmation:

    • You will receive an order confirmation email as soon as you place your order.  This means that we have authorized your credit card for the purchase and are preparing your order for shipment.  
    • As soon as we receive your order, we automatically reach out to our warehouse to confirm that it is in stock and available for immediate shipment.  
    • If your item is on backorder or unavailable, we will reach out to you via email.
    • If your item(s) are available for immediate shipment, we will process the charges and submit the order for shipment.

    Order Shipment:

      • If your order is stock and your credit card is approved by our fraud guarantee department, the metal detector ordered will ship within 1-2 business days from the date of your order.  
      • We will send you the tracking information within 24 hours to the email address you provided when checking out.  
      • We ship daily via UPS Ground, Fed Ex Ground, and Freight to the lower 48 states. Most all orders will ship the same day as ordered if the order is submitted before 1pm PST (some exceptions apply, some part & freight orders may not ship until the following day).  
      • Some parts orders and freight shipments are subject to ship the following business day if the order is placed close to the 1pm cut off time.
      • Shipping costs are included with any unit going ground to the lower 48 states. AK & HI ship by AIR at additional cost. 
      • We do not offer Cash On Delivery.  
      • A phone number is required by the freight company so a delivery appointment can be made.  
      • Failure to provide this at the time of order may cause a delay in delivery as freight items will not be delivered without an appointment.   
      • A delay in delivery may also cause additional storage fees to accrue that will need paid prior to delivery.
  • Note to international customers: We can ship worldwide where allowed by the Manufacturer. You are responsible for any and all duties or taxes that may apply. (see details below)
    • Customs, Duties, and Taxes: Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to customs brokerage fees, import duties, and taxes after the shipment reaches the destination country. Additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient because we have no control over these government-imposed charges and cannot determine what they may be. Customs policies vary greatly among countries. Therefore, we cannot, and will not, offer advice about taxes in your country. We report the amount of the sale on the Customs form. Please do not ask us to claim less than the actual purchase amount. It is the customers responsibility to know the legality of the metal detectors ordered in their country. Do not order items that are illegal to import into your country. Laws are different in every country and we cannot keep up with them all. It is your responsibility to check with your Customs office to see if your country permits the shipment of our metal detectors to your country.
    • As the buyer, it is your responsibility to find out that information before you order. Please contact your local customs office for information.
    • To avoid a delay in receiving your order from customs, consider the following:
    • Provide us with a phone number where you can be reached by customs when your metal detector arrives. This phone number will be listed on the commercial invoice so customs can reach you to clear your order.
    • Please do not refuse a shipment or ignore requests from carriers regarding duty and/or tax liability charges. Be aware that most carriers will hold a shipment for 5 days after arrival in your country before they return it to the sender.
    • We do not refund original shipping charges for goods that are refused for delivery at customs.
    • We will deduct all additional fees resulting from refused international shipments from your refund.
    • If we are charged for YOUR taxes and duties on the shipment or incur any penalty or lawsuit related to your order or shipment, we will post the charge to your credit card.
    • If the package is seized by Customs for any reason and we do not receive the package back, we will NOT issue you a refund since, obviously, local laws and regulations determine the fate of the package. If we do receive the package back after being seized, you are still responsible for the shipping charges and any other fees plus penalties incurred.
    • We ship via UPS and Fedex for most products, USPS for small parts and accessories, and freight for large products.
    • If you don't receive tracking information from us within six business days of your order confirmation, feel free to follow up with us at support@modernmetaldetectors.com

    Damages:

    • Please inspect the packaging of your items when they arrive.
    • If there are any metal detectors damaged upon arrival, you can file a warranty claim to get replacement parts for anything that's damaged.  
    • If your item(s) do arrive damaged, please send photos to support@modernmetaldetectors.com and we will process an insurance claim on your behalf.

    Cancellations & Refunds:

    • All orders canceled after we have charged you are subject to an administration fee equal to $45, this is to cover the cost we have to pay to our payment processor. If you order an OKM product and cancel after 24 hours there is a 15% admin fee if it has not shipped and a 25% restocking fee if it has shipped. This is a fee that covers administrative and shipment fees. 
    • If your item is on backorder and you accept the backorder, we will hold your payment until the metal detector ships. If you decide to cancel before a backorder arrives and is processed for shipping, we will not charge a fee. 
    • If you order has shipped, you (the buyer) will be responsible for actual return shipping charges. Refunds will only be issued to the original credit card that you use when placing your order.

    Backorders:

    • From time to time, a product may run out of stock at our warehouse and the website wasn't updated when you placed your order. In that case, we will send you an email right after you place your order notifying you of the backorder, what the expected time for arrival is, and what substitutes are available in case you are interested in getting a metal detector sooner.
    • The expected arrival time may change due to unforeseen circumstances like a shipment getting held up at the port upon arrival or the factory missing a certain part needed to complete the manufacturing process.
    • If the arrival time changes on your order, you can let us know whether you would like to keep the order, substitute for a different product, or cancel the order altogether. 
    • Once back orders arrive, we will notify you by email with your estimated ship date and you will receive an email with tracking information within 1-3 business days.

    CTX 3030

    I ordered the Minelab unit from Modern Metal Detectors because of the extra gear I received when I purchased unit. I didn't realize it was on back order. But when it came in, I was very satisfied. I wanted to give them a chance for my business, and met my expectations. I will shop with them in the future.

    QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

    Ask a Question
    • What is the biggest coil can we get with that?

      It would be the 17" Elliptical. Please see it by clicking here.

    • Wow I'm taken it away!! I learned about you guys from a review on a Google search about the GTX 3030. So glad I read that! My question is what mode would I sit it for gold? I live in Alaska so that is priority. Hopefully it will detect other stuff as well in the same mode? Very Rocky up here. Which one of the DD coils would you recommend? Will order soon can't wait!!!

      Hi, thank you for your message. Please read this article which explains about using the CTX-3030 for gold detection. Relic mode would be helpful for you. Also a 6" coil is great for smaller areas around rocks, yet the 17" coil will give you the extra depth of approx 1.5 feet.

    • Does this have the latest software?

      Yes, we make sure all of our metal detectors have the latest software straight from the factory.
      Currently, it contains the updated new 2021 version 2.

    • What range,and how deep can it go.

      This question we hear a lot and its an important one. The short answer is that there are many variables that can affect the depth of metal is detected. VLF (very low frequency) hobby detectors can detect various depths depending on the ground conditions and target size. However, it is known that the size of the coil is usually how deep it will detect. For example, if you have got an 11-inch coil, it will typically detect at a depth of 11 inches. The CTX-3030 does come with an 11” coil yet you can purchase the 17” or 6” Smart coils as separate.

       

       

    • I live near Fredericksburg.va. I've been Relic hunting since 1960.ive used all kinds of machines.i Love the May utilus but I can't seem to find me ne now.i was wondering is this Minelab good for civil war relics and is it hard to learn to.use.please let me know because looking for a new machine.

      The Minelab CTX-3030 is perfect for finding civil war relics as it has a built-in Relic Mode. Using this will allow you the luxury of not having to worry about metal detecting over an area that has already been searched. Easy shallow targets are probably gone but the harder to find deeper targets are there waiting to be found, as they will be out of most metal detectors' normal detection range.

      Please see this instructional video for finding these specific types of targets. Click here to see. 

      It is a user-friendly machine for beginners to expert level and it also comes with the full manual on how to use the various modes and settings. We are also here to help you with any questions you may have. You can reach us anytime by email at support@modernmetaldetectors.com or by calling one of our experts at 800-871-0285. Thank you

    • Hiw long how many meters long can you see gold or other things is ther moniter for gold and diomond only

       
      Hello, the CTX-3030 is a metal detector only and can detect gold and diamond rings but not diamonds on their own. It can find gold from surface level up to around 17 inches deep with its biggest coil which you can see by clicking here:

      We do offer financing options where you can pay in 0% fee installments by choosing Klarna or Shop Pay at checkout.

       

    • Halo, I would like to know how deep this product can detect

      It can detect up to 2.5 feet underground and even find gold nuggets at this depth.

    • buenas tardes mi pregunta es la maquina m la pueden financiar en pagos

      Hola, sí, puedes pagar con nuestras opciones de financiación. Seleccione las cuotas de Klarna o Shop Payments al finalizar la compra. Gracias

    • What depth can I find gold or silver coins.

      This question we hear a lot and it's an important one. The short answer is that there are many variables that can affect the depth of metal is detected. VLF (very low frequency) hobby detectors can detect various depths depending on the ground conditions and target size. It is known that the size of the coil is usually how deep it will detect. For example, if you have got an 11-17 inch coil-like on the CTX-3030, it will typically detect at a depth of 11-17 inches.

      • You will receive an order confirmation email as soon as you place your order.  This means that we have authorized your credit card for the purchase and are preparing your order for shipment.  
      • As soon as we receive your order, we automatically reach out to our warehouse to confirm that it is in stock and available for immediate shipment.  
      • If your item is on backorder or unavailable, we will reach out to you via email.
      • If your item(s) are available for immediate shipment, we will process the charges and submit the order for shipment.

      Order Shipment:

        • If your order is stock and your credit card is approved by our fraud guarantee department, the metal detector ordered will ship within 1-2 business days from the date of your order.  
        • We will send you the tracking information within 24 hours to the email address you provided when checking out.  
        • We ship daily via UPS Ground, Fed Ex Ground, and Freight to the lower 48 states. Most all orders will ship the same day as ordered if the order is submitted before 1pm PST (some exceptions apply, some part & freight orders may not ship until the following day).  
        • Some parts orders and freight shipments are subject to ship the following business day if the order is placed close to the 1pm cut off time.
        • Shipping costs are included with any unit going ground to the lower 48 states. AK & HI ship by AIR at additional cost. 
        • We do not offer Cash On Delivery.  
        • A phone number is required by the freight company so a delivery appointment can be made.  
        • Failure to provide this at the time of order may cause a delay in delivery as freight items will not be delivered without an appointment.   
        • A delay in delivery may also cause additional storage fees to accrue that will need paid prior to delivery.
    • Note to international customers: We can ship worldwide where allowed by the Manufacturer. You are responsible for any and all duties or taxes that may apply. (see details below)
      • Customs, Duties, and Taxes: Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to customs brokerage fees, import duties, and taxes after the shipment reaches the destination country. Additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient because we have no control over these government-imposed charges and cannot determine what they may be. Customs policies vary greatly among countries. Therefore, we cannot, and will not, offer advice about taxes in your country. We report the amount of the sale on the Customs form. Please do not ask us to claim less than the actual purchase amount. It is the customers responsibility to know the legality of the metal detectors ordered in their country. Do not order items that are illegal to import into your country. Laws are different in every country and we cannot keep up with them all. It is your responsibility to check with your Customs office to see if your country permits the shipment of our metal detectors to your country.
      • As the buyer, it is your responsibility to find out that information before you order. Please contact your local customs office for information.
      • To avoid a delay in receiving your order from customs, consider the following:
      • Provide us with a phone number where you can be reached by customs when your metal detector arrives. This phone number will be listed on the commercial invoice so customs can reach you to clear your order.
      • Please do not refuse a shipment or ignore requests from carriers regarding duty and/or tax liability charges. Be aware that most carriers will hold a shipment for 5 days after arrival in your country before they return it to the sender.
      • We do not refund original shipping charges for goods that are refused for delivery at customs.
      • We will deduct all additional fees resulting from refused international shipments from your refund.
      • If we are charged for YOUR taxes and duties on the shipment or incur any penalty or lawsuit related to your order or shipment, we will post the charge to your credit card.
      • If the package is seized by Customs for any reason and we do not receive the package back, we will NOT issue you a refund since, obviously, local laws and regulations determine the fate of the package. If we do receive the package back after being seized, you are still responsible for the shipping charges and any other fees plus penalties incurred.
      • We ship via UPS and Fedex for most products, USPS for small parts and accessories, and freight for large products.
      • If you don't receive tracking information from us within six business days of your order confirmation, feel free to follow up with us at support@modernmetaldetectors.com

      • If your item(s) do arrive damaged, please send photos to support@modernmetaldetectors.com and we will process an insurance claim on your behalf.

      Cancellations & Refunds:

      • All orders canceled after we have charged you are subject to an administration fee equal to $45, this is to cover the cost we have to pay to our payment processor. If you order an OKM product and cancel after 24 hours there is a 15% admin fee if it has not shipped and a 25% restocking fee if it has shipped. This is a fee that covers administrative and shipment fees. 
      • If your item is on backorder and you accept the backorder, we will hold your payment until the metal detector ships. If you decide to cancel before a backorder arrives and is processed for shipping, we will not charge a fee. 
      • If you order has shipped, you (the buyer) will be responsible for actual return shipping charges. Refunds will only be issued to the original credit card that you use when placing your order.

      Backorders:

      • From time to time, a product may run out of stock at our warehouse and the website wasn't updated when you placed your order. In that case, we will send you an email right after you place your order notifying you of the backorder, what the expected time for arrival is, and what substitutes are available in case you are interested in getting a metal detector sooner.
      • The expected arrival time may change due to unforeseen circumstances like a shipment getting held up at the port upon arrival or the factory missing a certain part needed to complete the manufacturing process.
      • If the arrival time changes on your order, you can let us know whether you would like to keep the order, substitute for a different product, or cancel the order altogether. 
      • Once back orders arrive, we will notify you by email with your estimated ship date and you will receive an email with tracking information within 1-3 business days.

      How to Handle Damages, Exceptions or Discrepancies at time of Product Delivery (Carton packaging appears to have some damage such as ripped, holes, large dents, open carton, or items are missing):

      • Carton damage requires visual inspection of contents of the unit. 
      • Modern Metal Detectors recommends IMMEDIATE inspection, with driver present, to verify damage. If contents are damaged, indicate damage on carrier’s paperwork and notify Modern Metal Detectors immediately. 
      • IMPORTANT: If contents cannot be inspected immediately, notation on carrier’s paperwork must state: “Carton damage, subject to inspection” and list type of damage. 
      • Contents must be inspected within 48 hours of arrival and actual damage reported to the carrier

      Carton packaging has excessive damage with the exposed product:

      • Refuse shipment
      • Sign carrier paperwork: “Carton damaged and refused”
      • Notify Modern Metal Detectors immediately.

      QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

      Ask a Question
      • What is the biggest coil can we get with that?

        It would be the 17" Elliptical. Please see it by clicking here.

      • Wow I'm taken it away!! I learned about you guys from a review on a Google search about the GTX 3030. So glad I read that! My question is what mode would I sit it for gold? I live in Alaska so that is priority. Hopefully it will detect other stuff as well in the same mode? Very Rocky up here. Which one of the DD coils would you recommend? Will order soon can't wait!!!

        Hi, thank you for your message. Please read this article which explains about using the CTX-3030 for gold detection. Relic mode would be helpful for you. Also a 6" coil is great for smaller areas around rocks, yet the 17" coil will give you the extra depth of approx 1.5 feet.

      • Does this have the latest software?

        Yes, we make sure all of our metal detectors have the latest software straight from the factory.
        Currently, it contains the updated new 2021 version 2.

      • What range,and how deep can it go.

        This question we hear a lot and its an important one. The short answer is that there are many variables that can affect the depth of metal is detected. VLF (very low frequency) hobby detectors can detect various depths depending on the ground conditions and target size. However, it is known that the size of the coil is usually how deep it will detect. For example, if you have got an 11-inch coil, it will typically detect at a depth of 11 inches. The CTX-3030 does come with an 11” coil yet you can purchase the 17” or 6” Smart coils as separate.

         

         

      • I live near Fredericksburg.va. I've been Relic hunting since 1960.ive used all kinds of machines.i Love the May utilus but I can't seem to find me ne now.i was wondering is this Minelab good for civil war relics and is it hard to learn to.use.please let me know because looking for a new machine.

        The Minelab CTX-3030 is perfect for finding civil war relics as it has a built-in Relic Mode. Using this will allow you the luxury of not having to worry about metal detecting over an area that has already been searched. Easy shallow targets are probably gone but the harder to find deeper targets are there waiting to be found, as they will be out of most metal detectors' normal detection range.

        Please see this instructional video for finding these specific types of targets. Click here to see. 

        It is a user-friendly machine for beginners to expert level and it also comes with the full manual on how to use the various modes and settings. We are also here to help you with any questions you may have. You can reach us anytime by email at support@modernmetaldetectors.com or by calling one of our experts at 800-871-0285. Thank you

      • Hiw long how many meters long can you see gold or other things is ther moniter for gold and diomond only

         
        Hello, the CTX-3030 is a metal detector only and can detect gold and diamond rings but not diamonds on their own. It can find gold from surface level up to around 17 inches deep with its biggest coil which you can see by clicking here:

        We do offer financing options where you can pay in 0% fee installments by choosing Klarna or Shop Pay at checkout.

         

      • Halo, I would like to know how deep this product can detect

        It can detect up to 2.5 feet underground and even find gold nuggets at this depth.

      • buenas tardes mi pregunta es la maquina m la pueden financiar en pagos

        Hola, sí, puedes pagar con nuestras opciones de financiación. Seleccione las cuotas de Klarna o Shop Payments al finalizar la compra. Gracias

      • What depth can I find gold or silver coins.

        This question we hear a lot and it's an important one. The short answer is that there are many variables that can affect the depth of metal is detected. VLF (very low frequency) hobby detectors can detect various depths depending on the ground conditions and target size. It is known that the size of the coil is usually how deep it will detect. For example, if you have got an 11-17 inch coil-like on the CTX-3030, it will typically detect at a depth of 11-17 inches.
