You can link direct to them - it’s ok ::g

Interesting concept. Surprised it’s the first to be honest. Although I suppose the processing power and speed will then depend on the phone being used :-/

An interesting concept for some which was mooted some time ago. There was an advertising piece which I read about (somewhere) earlier this year. Such an 'app' may well appeal to some, however I can't help thinking that for practical reasons, perhaps a detector with a built-in basic phone for emergencies would make more sense? ::g Regards ss47

Nooooooo, I tell my Mrs that the phone interferes with the detector which is why I have to leave it in the van. ;) I go to the fields for a bit of peace as well as detecting.

hello, very interesting concept, seems a lot of backers like this idea, would have liked to see better specifications although 7.5 KHz, could not see much on coils except 9 inch O/D. might take a punt my self,

I saw a guy with these at a stand in the Detectival commercial tent a couple of years ago.

Cant miss the bright blue colour. ;)

Stands out like some bright yellow machines. :)

Happy Hunting,

The idea is an interesting one but that choice of colour :-O everyone has their own personal preference but for me it keeps reminding me of a hospital crutch, nothing against hospital crutches mind! ::g :))
Thanks

I wonder how long your phone battery will last when used for this? x;

model phone, metal detector combos have been proposed for the last 10 years or more. Seen them with just CAD drawing, cheap mockups with plywood coils and sometimes even with genuine Deus coil that's been rebadged.

How many can you go out and buy ?

Does Bluetooth have the bandwidth

Can the phone upload, process then sound the info quick enough while still doing all it normal phone stuff ?

Seem to be a flawed idea to me.

I could be wrong. But don't think so in this case.


you could put all the electronics in the coil and the just use the phone as an app. But why bother.

Not that I am convinced there even nails on the board and these sometimes a sync issue with YouTube. But some of the beeps are 6" plus inches away from the coin
