AND ASSEMBL V
The GOLD MASTER V I SAT can be used in three different configurations, hand-held, chest mounted, or hip-mounted.
The manner decided upon is up to the personal preference of the user. There are advantages to each style. Some users
like to be able to put the detector aside when they are recovering a target, and thus get it out of the way. Also, with this
method, one hand is left free - all of the operation can be done with one hand. The forefinger is used to control the fine
ground balance knob and operate the IRON I.D. toggle. The only disadvantage is obvious. The detector, although
extremely lightweight and well balanced, is still more tiring than when used in the separated hip-mount or chest configuration.
In the hand-held configuration, be sure that the cable is tightly wound around the rod sections as illustrated, in
order that it not get in the way of the loop. A cable that flops around will cause false signalling when it gets near the loop.
Allow the cable to be loose enough at the lower part of the rod (where it joins the loop) so that no strain occurs when the
loop is paddled back and forth.
If the off the rod option is chosen, there are several ways to mount the control box on the side or chest, as there are two
belt slots available, as well as camera strap hooks along the edges of the control panel. One belt slot is on the top of the
control box on the bracket that connects the control box to the rod handle, and the other is a part of the detector stand and
speaker grill protector. Choose the one that is most comfortable and convenient for you. Belts and camera straps are not
provided by White's, although widely available from other sources. This hip or chest mount configuration ensures the
least amount of arm fatigue during long periods of use. Again, coil the cable around the rod sections neatly and tightly
and leave just enough extra cable from the rod to the control box tq ensure ease of operation. Too much free cable will
only cause tangling and tripping. Too little free cable will restrict the movement of the loop. Use the velcro straps
provided to hold the cable secure. (Movement of the loop cable near the loop will cause a false response.)
Remove all parts from the shipping carton, and make sure you have the following:
Control Box Loop Battery Pack
I- • "S" Rod Middle Rod
The GOLDMASTER V I SAT comes partially assembled. The
Straight Rod will need to be attached to the loop as shown (be
sure and place the two rubber washers on the clevis end of the
Straight Rod as shown before sliding between the loop ears).
Optional control box mountings are available on the
The Control Box snaps off and on the "S" rod by compressing
the two spring clip buttons on one side and
pivoting the Control Box.
The GOLDMASTER VI SAT can be worn as a hipmount
or chest-mount. To hip-mount, simply remove
the control box from the "S" Rod, adjust the length of
cable wound around the rod, and weave your belt
through the slots on the control box.
To use as a chest mount use a camera strap around your
neck and attached to the "D" rings on the sides of the
control panel. Use with belt through the detector stand
bottom slot for more stability.

Square foam pad can be installed inside arm cup for added comfort, velcro cable retainers are used to secure loop cable around rods.
The GOLDMAS1ER V I SAT is powered by eight 1 1/2 volt penlight batteries. Install these batteries in the battery holder as shown
below. Note the flat side 0 of each battery rests against a spring and the bump side © rests against a solid contact.
Open the battery compartment by grasping the black plastic plunger and pulling. Note: The battery compartment door is located on
the back of the control box opposite the control panel. Once the door is removed, attach the battery lead from the detector to the
penlight battery holder. It will only fit one way. Install the battery pack into the battery compartment and close the door firmly. Note
that the black plastic plunger (latch) has two positions; latched - when the door is pushed firmly closed and on-latched - when the door
is to be pulled out. If out of alignment, it may be necessary to gently pull the plunger (on-latch) in order to allow it to latch when
closing the door, thereby locking it in place.
A new set of recommended Alkaline batteries should provide approximately 40 hours of use. This will vary with the number of target
responses, temperature and threshold level.
Headphones will increase battery life.
When the batteries get weak, the volume (beep) will be reduced. At a certain point, the detector will stop functioning (will not
respond to metal).
When the detector is turned on, the battery condition automatically shows on the meter for several seconds before the detector
becomes operational. After battery check the meter needle will automatically return to the far left of the meter, and will not move
during searching, unless the IRON I. D. feature is used. The GOLDMAS1ER VI SAT will operate fine when the batteries check in
the BA TT. LOW area. However, caution should be used and a new set of batteries should be kept on hand. Sometime between
checking in the BATT. Low area and/or to the left of the BATT. LOW portion of the meter, the volume (beep) will become weak and
shortly after that the detector will cease to respond to metal.
Eight extra 1 1/2 penlight alkaline batteries are always a good idea when far from civilization. An extra penlight battery holder
(White's Part #523-0006) is also a good idea when traveling far from home.
Although the GOLDMAS1ER VI SAT doesn't come standard with rechargeable batteries, high quality systems are available. White's
#512-0012 ten cell nicad and #509-0012 ten cell charger are recommended. Contact your Dealer or telephone toll free 1-800-547-6911
