Garrett Ace Apex Standard Package


MSRP: $499.95

Complete Flexibility

Garrett’s Multi-Flex technology, fueled by a cutting edge, broad-bandwidth digital platform, simply gives you more versatility with the Apex than can be found on any detector in its price range!

Choose from powerful single frequencies to enhance detection on specific targets*, or select one of Apex’s simultaneous multifrequency modes to achieve excellent detection on all targets in all soils.

* Note: lower frequencies generally offer improved detection on larger and more conductive targets (i.e. large silver coins). Higher frequencies generally offer improved detection on smaller and less conductive targets (i.e., hammered silver coins, gold nuggets).


  • SIX DETECTION MODES: + PINPOINT Zero, Coins, US Coins, Jewelry, Relics, and Custom.
  • BACKLIT LCD: Switch on the bright backlight to help see the controls and target info while searching at night.
  • RECHARGEABLE BATTERY: Built-in rechargeable lithium ion battery provides up to approximately 15 hours of use, depending on setting. Micro-USB charging cable included.
  • HIGH-RESOLUTION GROUND BALANCE: 175 points of ground balance resolution (like the Garrett AT Max), ranging from ferrous ground to saltwater.
  • BUILT-IN Z-LYNK WIRELESS: Exclusive Garrett Z-Lynk wireless technology is up to six times faster than Bluetooth. Hunt without the cords!
  • IRON AUDIO: Garrett's unique feature helps to correctly identify complex iron objects, such as bottle caps.

Excellent detection depth on a wide variety of targets.

  • INTUITIVE AND EFFICIENT CONTROLS: Direct drive buttons for most frequently used controls. Easy-access menu adjustments for other controls.
  • LARGE TARGET ID NUMBERS: Oversized Digital Target ID numbers, offering target conductivity/identity, can be easily read with a quick glance.
  • HIGH-RESOLUTION DISCRIMINATION: Twenty pixels of Notch Discrimination, including eight pixels of Iron. Create any custom detection pattern you wish.
  • 5-TONE AUDIBLE TARGET ID: Five distinct tones provide greater audible target identification than on previous Garrett detectors.
  • FAST TARGET RECOVERY SPEED: The Apex’s quick reactivity provides increased ability to hear good targets mixed in amongst trash.
  • HYBRID AUDIO SYSTEM: The Apex target audio provides the simplicity of binary audio (found on existing ACE detectors) with the additional benefits of subtle proportional audio (found on Garrett detectors like AT Max) for faint targets.
  • IRON VOLUME: Allows user to decrease the volume of iron targets, while the volume of non-ferrous targets remains at normal level. Experienced treasure hunters often like hearing all targets, but will now appreciate the option to decrease the volume of those undesired items. With eight Iron Volume adjustments, Apex offers more flexibility than any other detector in its price range.
  • VOLUME CONTROL: Controls overall volume in both the built-in speaker and headphones. Excellent detection depth on a wide variety of targets.
