Garrett AT PRO 2. NEW 2017

Garrett has announced a new metal detector. Underwater and wireless one. The project’s unofficial name is Garrett AT PRO 2. The product release date is 2017… First Texas said the same thing to treasure hunters a year ago.

A forthcoming new Garrett AT PRO 2 has been announced by Henry Tellez, the top manager responsible for international sales and marketing at Garrett, when being interviewed at a metal detecting rally, Netherlands.

The novelty is described in the following way… It will be an underwater machine for sure (this means an amphibian device, with water submersion up to 3 meters). Plus wireless technologies. To what extent will a new detector be wireless? They can make just the headphones, but they can also make both the headphones and a coil. At any rate, such things have long been made by XP, the French manufacturer.


Previously, First Texas (the manufacturer of Fisher, Teknetics, Bounty Hunter machines) announced similar plans – their new metal detector will be submersible and wireless as well.

All about Garrett is collected here. When the new product is released, we won’t miss it.

  • If garrett brings out a dual frequency AT,PRO then I’ll buy. Single frequency just doesn’t cut it for me in salt water and iron infested water hunting. Fishers cz,20 is still by far the water unit and do all .

  • If garrett really comes out with a wireless submersible detector as good as the original im on board to try one out. I recently switched over to minelab and would switch back if its really true. Send me one for testing. …

  • Need a backlightin all machines especially the pro & gold for early morrning and early evening

  • Yes your right a backlight would be a good idea

  • And a bigger display

  • Agreed. They really need to add backlit screen. If they add wireless, bluetooth, and GPS as well as the waterproof capability they will hit a home run.

    • Ill second that Marc,, bit of a squint in bad light, I hate headphone leads and I want to go in the surf. Hadnt thought of GPS but wow, that would save a bit of a faff :-)

  • 1. Back lighting
    2. Dual frequency,& change in the mid tone
    3. wireless headphones
    4. connection of plugs needs to be made easier
    5. internal coil cord ( in the shaft)
    6 the arm cuff could be built stronger along with a more comfortable hand grip
    7 final cost ? hope no more than $1000

  • Agree backlight is a must.

  • One small, often overlooked detail….a clock in the screen!

  • I’ll bite!

    Here is what I would like to see upgraded

    Wireless Audio
    Bigger screen
    LED backlight
    Dual Freq

  • I know AT pro 2 will be coming out the year 2017 will it look the same like the AT pro AT gold

  • I would like to see a better coil cover. The onesavailableat present are expensive and very fragile, I’ve have them break first time used. I have other detectors with original overs after years of use.
    Only thing wrong with the AP Pro.

  • Would like to see for At Pro 2 – lithium battery, bigger display, anti-sand in the cane, less heavy in total, more powerful in depth, the arm support be stronger, and the protective disk of At pro sois More solid than it cracks. :)

  • It would nice if they would put a volume control because some people don’t like to wear the head set some don’t like beeping sound so you can’t turn it down especially when you’re detecting on the beach you get a lot of looks 😎

  • A variable fully ajustable range of audio tones to suit user ajusable on screen .better batery compartment acses and some form of pannel lighting ajusable from screen.

  • 2nd reply i find that in sunny conditions the screen tends to reflect sunlight in to eyes ie noway of ajusting angle.
