    I think that's what we're seeing here: the first generation problems that are leading to a world of headaches for everyone. Personally, I don't think the first generation of owners ought to be paying $40 to fix the problems, but in the real world of business, I guess that's just the way it is. I only hope Garrett isn't going to end up with a PR disaster on its hands over this.

    Maybe the lesson for all of us in this is to be careful when buying the first generation of any detector. Maybe the AT Pro 2.0 is the one to buy.

    Sorry if I come across as preachy. Don't mean to. I just know how mad I'd be if I plunked down $600 for a detector that required multiple returns for multiple problems.

    And I know there are those folks have one and absolutely love it. Not a problem in the world.

    Garrett's a good company and they've got a really loyal fan base. I hate to see this happening.

    Hope this gets worked out soon for everyone's sake.
    I wanted to get one when they first came out, but I held off to see if there was going to be any problems. Once the falsing issues were fixed I jumped in and bought one, now Im caught up in the leaking issues. I love the AT pro, Garrett will get this right.

    YES, GETTING EXTREMELY AGITATED WITH THE AT PRO!

    $600.00 FOR DETECTOR
    $100.00 SUBMERGIBLE HEADPHONES
    $18.00 SHIPPING + INSURANCE TO SEND BACK TO TEXAS DUE TO LEAK PROBLEM.
    2 WEEKS WITHOUT DETECTOR.
    ANOTHER $18.00 SHIPPING + INSURANCE FOR FAULTY PIN POINT FUNCTION.
    WAITING RETURN.........
    Wishing I would have saved a lil more for an e-cal.
    Sorry to whine......

    I think if you have to return the product due to a defect, the units warranty should reset upon arrival of the new or repaired detector. I am extremely worried that the same problems are going to return time after time and the warranty is just going to expire. agggh.

    My AT pro is on the way to Garrett, the technician guaranteed me it would not leak again. That's what I wanted to hear. I also sent the money for upgrade package.

    Re: ATTENTION AT PRO USERS - PLEASE READ - REGARDING UPGRADE INFORMATION

    I have been enjoying the AT PRO so much lately I have gotten way behind on my projects at home. I have spent the last couple of weeks building a storage shed, so I figured this would be a good time to send in the AT PRO for the upgrades. I got it back yesterday. I really like the cam locks. I can't tell for sure, but I think I got a different coil. Now for the question....there was a little metal clip in a plastic bag attached to the stem. What is that for?

    The clip is probably for the attachment of the headphone adapter pigtail that Garrett is selling. Some folks have been getting them with their upgrades, some haven't. I didn't, but the clip comes with the adapter I believe if you plan on buying it.
