    Audible Metal Detecting Idea - Breakthrough!

    Hello THers: While just viewing YouTube videos of multi-frequency metal detectors, I got what I think is a radical idea that I couldn't find on Google, yet!

    The videos I watched of multi-frequency detectors such as the Nokta/Makro Impact and the Minelab E-Trac sort of turned me off due to their high-technology resulting in too many varying sounds, too many display numbers, too many controls. So it came to me that manufacturers should do research and development on detectors that talk to you. Instead of having to memorize all of the numbers, a synthesized voice would simply say "Pulltab", "Nickel", "Iron", "Dime, clad", "Dime, silver", "Not sure" and so on. On an LED screen, you would see the outline of the object to confirm the audio.

    I'm sure that opens up your ideas to as to what you would rather have that could even be part of a convertible detector with more choices of features. What do you think, or know?

    Even more so if going over multiple targets.

    Each vocal would have to start with "Might be". Robert Clotworthy would be an interesting voice .

    The Garrett GTI-2500 has a "Treasure Talk" function that does this...

    Treasure Talk: Permits Treasure Talk on demand when a target is detected. Pressing this pad will cause the voice to give the Upper Scale ID number, size and depth of the target last detected.

    I forgot all about the 2500 with "Treasure Talk". That was some time ago. Good call SD.

    I had the Garrett 2500 years ago and after five minutes the voice got super annoying and I turned it off and never used it again. It was worse than Chinese water torture!

    maybe you could program the voice you want to use, like some GPS units......maybe John Wayne says "That's a pull tab, pilgrim" or maybe The Waterboy says "momma said it's nail". i thought about this way too hard. haha.

    I sold my Garrett euro ace because I found the bell tones became very annoying after awhile. Reminded me of all the sounds of a casino when you first walk in the door. I think the same thing would happen after listening to the same voice in my ear every time I went out to hunt. I think if it was 100% accurate every time you got a hit then I think I might be able to tolerate it but until that machine comes available I’ll stick with what I have for now.

    There was actually a machine in the very early 1980s or so, that did this. In the early days of the invention of TID (targets grouped by conductivity, as we know it so well today). The detector was called the "Turtle".

    And .... it affords you absolutely nothing. Other than to allow the detector to group "broad categories" into concise quadrant-type zones (eg.: "nickel", "tab", penny/dime", "foil" etc...) There's absolutely no information you couldn't already get from your tone-machines and elaborate graphs, that wouldn't be MORE informative. In other words: the moment you allow the detectors to make the grouping categories, is the moment it will 'dumb down the info' to group into categories. Yes , I realize that "tooty-fluty orchestra" tones can be annoying and hard to learn. But the only thing a detector saying "penny" is doing, is to simply filter the same info (in a dumbed down way) into categories for you.

    And if there's ever a signal that is waffling between to categories, it will no less annoying to you, when the machine tries to say multiple things, depending on the exact swing and centering.

    As for learning the "tooty-fluty" of complicated machines: Just go to a place crawling with easy clad, foil, tabs, etc... and force yourself to dig 100 signals. THEN the lights will "go on". And for how deep silver whispers sound (if park turf is your agenda) : Hook up with a proficient user who routinely comes in with-the-goods. Have him flag a few suspected deepies for you. See how they sound, compared to other shallow clad stuff he might elect to pass. After a few such comparisons over flagged spots, the "lights will go on ".
    Metal detecting is my one worldy vice!
