 Hello fellow hunters, just wanted to let you all know i am new to this, an i am really getting a rush with all the excitment on finding stuff.  I live in Mass, which we all know has alot of history. I just recently bought 2 MPX digital's for myself ,and my son. Today we went to the bebeepsach to try them out. some how we were getting alot of crazy beeps and the icons were nuts. still learning these devices, but would like any tricks or input trying to dial them in. any info whould be awsome. gona do some more hunting tomorrow at another beach, and see what turns up. not sure on what some of the icons mean. i know there are different tones that i hear just like some good input. thanks and happy hunting.

  Hello topmoverjr and  Welcome from upstate NY
I'm not sure about your crazy beeps and icon,that could be a number of things that I'm sure someone on here has a clue too.I know beach hunting has different affects on a detector compared to land hunting.I'm a land hunter all the way.
My suggestion to one that is just starting with a new machine is to read,read and read your owners manual,this will tell you a lot of your machine functions,limitations and how to properly use.Also this forum has a lot of useful info at your fingertips  Teach
Another suggestion that I was taught and still use to this day,If you machine has a LCD screen with all your icons,use it only as a backup.
Listen to the tones that your machine gives when your detecting.When you find a target listen to the tone,clean tight clear tones usually mean good target,broken short tones usually mean junk.No machine is a 100% at IDing a target so it is encouraged to dig all targets till you get to know your maching and what it"s telling you.
Once you locate a target and pinpoint it manually and your not sure of what your target is by tone then you can check your icon on screen and compare the tone to the icon shown.Again the icons on the LCD screen is not 100% correct either.
I have two machins that has a LCD screen and I don't look at then,I can pretty well tell what's under coil by the tone that my machine gives off.
Once one reads the owner manual several times and gets a grasp on it,one of the fastest ways that I know of to get use to a new machine is to dig every target and make note of how your machine reacted to the target.
Another way is to plant a test garden with different coins and other metals that you may run into while detecting in the field.Plant your targets a different depths and mark them.Go through the garden with machine and make note
 to the tone that detector gives off at giving targets.
Well I think I rambled on enough for now  Crazy
I hope this will help you out in some way or the other.... Great
