Garrett PRO-Pointer 2 (NEW 2015). Video

Garrett has announced the launch of its renowned pinpointer’s second generation – Garrett Pro-Pointer 2 (Pro-Pointer II). See the first photos and video.

The new Garrett Pro-Pointer 2 isn’t an underwater one (as distinct from the Garrett PRO-Pointer AT which is Garrett’s new product 2015 as well). Power supply: 9V battery. LED backlight. Fast retuning capability (tunes out large metal targets and salt effects). Lost pinpointer alarm. Auto Off feature.

  • And where do things stand now? Garrett had one of the best pinpointers, practically a standard sample. It was simple, reliable, and most important thing – worked as the pinpointer should.

    But the Chinese released a Garrett PRO-Pointer fake… Externally they are one and the same device. But the fake works bad (very bad). The manufacturer releases the Garrett PRO-Pointer AT, underwater and bright one. But it is not so easy to work with it. The added features take time while hunting. I personally don’t like it. The pinpointer must save time when hunting! I don’t want to sit over the hole searching through the modes. I want to switch the pinpointer on, stick it into the hole, pick up a coin and go hunting further.

    And now here’s a Garrett PRO-Pointer 2. At the moment it seems to me that it’s the old (black) PRO-Pointer’s clone. A new button and lanyard detachment clip? All demonstrated in this video was in the old device as well.

    Now Garrett has three pinpointers… And which of them should the user buy? How to choose? Based on color and name?

  • In the new Garrett PRO-Pointer 2, the Auto Off feature activation is kind of after 60 minutes. In other words, there is an algorithm when the lost pinpointer alarm beeps after 5 minutes of inactivity and the device turns off automatically after one hour. If so, it’s good.

    In the old one, it was wrong (in my opinion): the alarm after 5 minutes of inactivity and the Auto Off after another 5 minutes. That’s to say, if you don’t return to your pinpointer within these 5 minutes, this means you don’t need it.

  • Pay attention to the lanyard attachment loop. Don’t you think it is unreliable? Even if you take care of this loop, it will definitely break down in course of time.

    And if you don’t take care of it… Just a typical situation. The pinpointer lanyard is attached to the belt (it’s a usual practice). The lanyard length is small (even if it’s a spiral one). So if you tread on it while digging out a hole and draw yourself up (stand up straight), the lanyard will either tear out the loop on the pinpointer or will tear off the attachment point to the belt.
