Garrett’s Pro-Pointer pinpointer metal detectors are able to quickly tune out mineralized ground or saltwater. This retuning technique can also be used to narrow in on large targets and to help gauge a target’s size/depth. To retune the standard Pro-Pointer II, use a quick power off and on process to shrink the detection field. To tune out saltwater, wet sand, or highly mineralized ground, hold the tip of the pinpointer to the water, sand, or soil as your turn on the power – thus instantly adjusting the pinpointer to the environment. Retuning the Pro-Pointer AT is even faster. Simply quick-press the button for an instant retune.

Garrett’s Pro-Pointers operate in an All-Metal Mode, meaning they will detect all ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Turn off your pinpointer after every use. It is designed to tune itself to its environment each time it is turned on.
