Testing the new Garrett Pro Pointer AT

I have just got hold of a Garrett PRO Pointer AT, which stands for all terrain.
Many thanks to Regton for sending it down.
Why not visit the Gary's detecting forum for more information as it becomes available.

Read more........

I will be testing it over the next few weeks.
Initial thoughts are very positive, the operation is very simple and it appears to have a lot of power...which has three settings.

Pro-Pointer AT Unique Features:
  • Fully waterproof to 10 feet with orange color for added visibility underwater.

  • Maximum Sensitivity for improved detection of nuggets and other small targets. Choose from three Sensitivity levels.

  • Fast Retune: Quick button press instantly tunes out environment or narrows detection field for precise pinpointing of larger targets. Retuning allows user to quickly:
    • Shrink detection field to precisely pinpoint large targets
    • Tune out mineralized ground, wet beach sand, etc.
    • Help gauge target size/distance
    • Help identify edges of large target
    • Pinpoint multiple targets versus one large target signal

  • Lost Pro-Pointer Alarm: After 5 minutes with no button presses, the pinpointer emits periodic warning chirps.

  • Automatic power off after 5 minutes of warning chirps; saves batteries.

  • Simple, single-button operation for Power, Retune, Sensitivity adjustment, and Stealth Mode.

  • Ruler in Inches and Centimeters molded into side of pinpointer to judge target depth.

  • Lanyard Attachment Loop molded into side of pinpointer.

  • New power button is easy to operate even with gloves.
