    I'm happy for you that you haven't had any problems. I did some research and thousands of people are having the same problems I am so you don't have to agree with my rant .the facts are they could have done a much better job with the construction of the unit.

    yeah the electronics in the machine are good..but the overall construction of the unit could be improved.the only thing they have fixed is the arm cuff....they made a new arm cuff that is reinforced... but there are many other issues that they need to take care of...I should have got a
    Minelab.. my old whites metal detector was built like a tank. I guess after owning a machine that's built really well you tend to compare the new one to the old.

    The Minelab is built well, I can say that.

    I will agree with the comfort issue, definitely needs to be rethought. Not saying that Garrett is flawless in there builds but you also have to look at if you want superior insides and also do not want to spend 1000's on a machine comman sense dictates that there has to be cost effectiveness somewhere in the build. And I only used the word rant from your post which I found a enjoyable read. All in all I have used lots of other machines just have had better luck with Garrett. HH

    my best finds are with this machine.I just wish I did not have to worry about it breaking down in so many different ways.lol...when I'm out treasure hunting I only want to think about treasure hunt.not what's going to break down next.I understand cost effectiveness ..they used to be about quality..now they just release anything..even the headphone adapter constantly breaks down ..its just a simple wire ..and there are so many complaints about it.I just made my own but most people don't have that option.if you have had as many problems as I have an others have you'd probably be thinking the same thing .I hope you don't have any problems because you will probablylook at the unit differently...even if Garrett gave me a brand new machine I would sell it for something else

    I agree with quality being sacrificed, My Gta 1000 still works flawlessly after 15 years and has held up structurly very well. And is WAY more comfortable to swing. I think I probably would be more upset and frustrated than you if I was having your problems with the Pro. Lol. And I agree the headphone adapter is a joke but as you stated I am being amazed at my finds since I upgraded to the pro.

    Congratulations on your finds. It is so amazing the older items you guys can discover on the "right" side of the country. Most of the Nevada stuff is much newer.

    Watch this and the remedy for your problem may be what is suggested at 11:00

    As a young man I would wonder why the Sun went down everyday; then it finally dawned on me.
