    I'd think a GPS display to help keep a grid going smoothly would be nice, I've noticed it can be hard sometimes (at least for me) to navigate a straight line when I'm looking at nothing but the ground......

    Joe, they have had what you want for years, its called surface masking. Select the amount of inches you wish to ignore and off you go. Compass and Tesoro were well into it at one time.

    As with tracking, discrimination, depth reading and target I.D. it was not as good as it sounds. To much of a price to pay. In the case of surface masking you can ignore the rubbish in the top few inches but each unwanted target that your not hearing still has the effect of blanking out good/wanted targets that are below and near the discriminated out item.

    I was thinking about depth disc just the other day. I guess I'm not gonna cash in on that idea now lol. It would be really cool I'm certain areas.
    I wish my AT Pro had a backlit screen and a clock.

    With all the tsunami debris headed for the west coast I would like to have a Geiger Counter mode to check for radiation before I dig!

    I'd be feeding those gophers! Breed and populate, and bring up the silver!

    I like the ideas of a clock and an estimated battery life indicator. Also I wouldn't mind if I could load MP3's or play a radio from my detector. Good ideas.

    What I would like to see is a strobe that flashes when you hit a good target. I am working on that now. It would allow you to watch the ground while scanning, but get instant notification of a good targer.
