    Garrett is back in the game with the Apex

    Garrett is back into the game!

    1st it was a good way to reveal a new detector with everyone!

    No threat to the Equinxox technically EXCEPT it will get tons of new detectorists into the Garrett family and they will likely be loyal to garret. By the time they need to upgrade from the Apex Garrett will have a competitor to the Equinox line.

    It is a direct threat to the Vanquish and Simplex+.

    Garrett has proved (to me at least) it is not conceding it's sport division.

    plus he revealed that there have been more than 1,000,000 Ace detectors sold.

    as a side note, their factory is back to 100% in Texas and they secured the Apex parts in advance of the virus striking America.


    Will they add these improvements to the AT Pro line to extend it? I am pretty sure they will. Too many AT Pro users out there. You will have a waterproof Apex on the AT Pro line with re-chargable batteries and lighter.


    The design is cool more like the Equinox control panel and I am sure the Viper coil will be a great hit.

    rechargable battery, true ground balance, lighter than Vanquish.

    price: $425 - $499 w/o wireless headphones
    add $80 for wireless earphones.


    Yes, Garrett is back into the game (did they ever leave?)

    Existing Ace users will flock to the Apex, newbies will buy the Apex and stay with Garrett for years.

    Still haven't seen an actual release date yet, just that there will be one soon. I haven't see any ads on the detector sites yet either. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough!

    Around two month from now, on the 26th of July, according to the presentation.

    I would really like to see how all these new detectors actually performs in terrain.

    Whenever Garrett decides to get Apex to market will be months or even years ahead of the Cygnus unicorn. Haven't seen anything on that mystical creature since early April..

    Nice entry level machine...but minelab has already done it with the Vanquish. Plus look at coil selection on the Vanquish. Nice to see Garrett coming into 2020 ...Here is the kicker their cheap detector has a iron audio now and their top tiers dont.... I wish they would have competed with the Equinox ....

    Jas 1:22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

    Calabash is correct, it is an entry level machine. With a maximum of 20 khz they missed that boat. My antique Tesoro Lobo was about 20 khz. I get more stuff at frequencies WAY higher than that. Even multi probably make much of difference as most known spots have been hit with all the lower frequencies.

    I don't know how you could possibly know that for sure. Cygnus isn't trying to be an entry level detector, nor is it trying to compete with any other detector specifically. If Cygnus does what we hope it will do, it will far surpass anything the Apex will bring to the hobby.

    Interesting. Do multi-frequency detectors tell you which frequency your target responded to?

    I ask because I've never owned one. My F-75 can use five to suit conditions, but just one at a time.
    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.

    Garrett finally did true multi frequency. Way to go Garrett! Next will be the AT series with true multi and fully water proof.

    I think this is a good thing, although they are continuing the ugly yellow plastic. I actually might buy this one. Does anyone know if that purple haired gal is still associated with Garrett? If not, I will order one asap!

    Are you referring to Jocelyn? What does she have to do with you ordering one or not?
