    My carrot flooded :(

    Was detecting the beach and forgot I had my orange pro pointer in my pocket... did a quick wade in the water, came back out and remembered I had my pro pointer. Figured no problem it's waterproof, but decided to check. Wrong, would not turn on and it was full of water

    It's been rinsed out with distilled water and is drying... will be calling Garrett on Monday.

    Maybe my switch is leaking.

    If it lasts for more than 4 hours, I think you're supposed to call your doctor or something.

    Left it out in the sun all day with the battery cap off .. when I insert the battery it turns on and just squeels and vibrates and the light flashes randomly.

    Garrett of course gave me an RMA to send it in. No surprise, great service.

    I did ask if I should be only doing short dunks with the pro pointer and they insisted it should have been fine to swim with down to 10 feet.

    So I guess I have a defective unit.
