    Spot on, TIDs #s and target icons showing items are nothing more than half guess by a computer. Found many nice gold and rings that sounded like junk till I dug them, some were diamond rings and earrings.

    But then you may end up just passing the coil back and forth over the same target again and again with your eyes closed.

    I complete a full swing in the time it takes to say "Quarter" or "Nickel". I never cared for the alarm type detectors because how the target signals when swung from various directions and heights can give you additional information about it.

    I like just three tones. After a few times out I know the display range for various targets.

    But that's just me. What sells may well be a talking detector. There's a lot of popular things that don't appeal to me.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    I understand some of these detectors you mentioned may have a learning curve. But they also have options and options is the only reason some one would upgrade. The etrac has its own language, and no voice in the world would make it better. As said before you would have to dumb down the machine to hear one voice. I like to hear it all as I know I am moving out of a area that had people there. I rarely come across ground that has very few targets. Im looking forward to what new machines come out this year. But have not been able to let go any of my single VLF machines. I think a picture and a scale of possible metal type would work better.

    Well, it was just an idea!

    Well, it was just an idea. But I agree somewhat with your criticisms. But the myriad of noises, er sounds, that the machines make are enough to drive one looney anyway. It's fun to fantasize.

    With my luck, if I had a metal detector that talked, it would likely say "No Clue" or "WTF"".

    Hi,

    -"a synthesized voice would simply say "Pulltab", "Nickel", "Iron", "Dime, clad", "Dime, silver", "Not sure" and so on" thats only for the US market, you would need approximately 160 software versions to cover the world market.

    -A lot of countries have changed their currencies and coins more times than you can keep track of. E.g. Great Britain had: celtic (a lot of different), roman ( alot of different), sub-roman (..), medival coins (..) and so on. You cant cover this imho.

    - A tone gives you a lot of addtional info. If you wiggle the coil and receive short, sharp snappy ding-ding: Ahhh that could a small, regular sized object like a coin and a button.

    -Relative orientation (lying flat in ground or on the rom) can change the identfication.

    -You will dig a lot of pulltabs giving good signals, a lot of junk lead indicating silver and a lot of tin/zinc particles sounding off as copper/brass/bronze. It is not excact science like math.

    I always like it to a tennis racket: As beginner buy a good beginner racket and learn hot to play tennis. If you like the sport buy a better racket. As sidenote due to aforementioned learning curve you play for sometime worse with the better racket...

    I wouldn't want it even if it said "1907 0 Barber Quarter in xf Condition Lying sideways at 8.367 inches"
    or "2006 Rotted Zinclon that looks like a Rat was chewing on it, at 3.127 inches, lying Flat" or "wrinkled up Wrigley's Gum Wrapper at 12 Inches"
    & Be spot on every time. Maybe for $100 in case I need to Find a 10K Class Ring with the Initials CLK for someone in a hurry, or a Water Main in a trashy area .
    But

    Would take all the fun out of Treasure Hunting

    It would be cool to just walk along waiting for the word "GOLD"...

    BUT... I can hear it now...

    When you have 2 items next to each other...

    "PULL DIME"... "DIMEPULL"

    PULLNAIL - DIMENAIL

    NAILTRASH.

    "UNKOWN CRAP" :P

    Not only can I hear... I can also see,,,

    Some old dude in trash infested area...

    ripping his headphones off in frustration and yelling at his detector... "SHUT THE ____ UP" ! ! !



    Ahhh that was fun.
