Minelab WM-08 Teardown + signal problem solution

Sometimes users impose inefficiency – because of the sound latency – as a charge upon the Minelab WM-08 wireless module. First, have you seen the electronics inside?

Here below are the pictures of disassembling the Minelab WM-08 wireless module. Plus, what problems can occur and how to solve them. Continue reading

This problem also often occurs to all Garrett ACE owners, including those who have new modifications. Keep in mind this option, maybe it will come in useful with other machines too (not only made by Garrett). Continue reading
