I just got the email from Kellyco about this machine this AM and was going to post it and did but at the wrong forum.  Tried to edit it all out but didn't know how.  I see it's posted already anyhow, again a day late and a dollar short, maybe with inflation I'm 5 dollars short.  Hope the machine is something you all can use but it seems like detectors are only allowed to move forward in incremental stages if we are lucky.

Meh.... I'm 3rd season into the hobby and have already realized, when it's all boiled down, I've had much more success with my old second hand classic analog machines than with the hyped up bells and whistles machines I have purchased. I'm sure there are more than a few that will scramble for the latest and newest.

As for me, well.... I will just sit back and enjoy the drama LOL

I used to be the same way! But then I made almost ten times the money in less than half the time after I got the Zed. 

Cheers

Funny comment by your wife Steve…

I had to laugh at that comment too as it is exactly the kind of thing Mrs JW would say to me.

I heard the GTI 2500 will be retired on May 6th. 
I love the imaging feature and was hoping that Garrett
give us a more modern version.

Perhaps my hoping this May 6th was not in vain.

Heard it officially from Garrett? Or just the rumor mill?

Ran across a new sneak peak while looking for something else, though not much different than the first one in this thread except maybe a closer view. I haven't followed this release at all, but here is the vid I saw FWIW.

Is it supposed to be a VLF? Or do you suppose they could put a PI/ZVT type unit into that package? Not much room for batteries I guess...

Nobody will know what it is until they announce it. Garrett is quite secretive. However, most bets, including mine, are that it will be the AT Pro 2. The AT Pro is a hugely successful detector but due for an update to keep it fresh. Garrett has already announced the new machine will have built in wireless headphone capability. Add a few more tweaks like a larger display and maybe a backlight, and you have a "new" detector.

      Important - whenever purchasing new or from anybody claiming a product has a transferable warranty, it is imperative to obtain and keep a copy of the original purchase receipt. If possible the receipt should include both the model and serial number of the item purchased. Ultimately a written proof of purchase is your only real protection if you need to make a warranty claim. Do read and understand the warranty before purchasing. Under a federal rule, retailers must let you read any written warranty for products costing more than $15.

      Bought a GM 2 a couple of weeks ago. $120. Nice-looking unit, but had a tough time getting it ground balanced. Finally figured out the Sensitivity (gain) pot was shot. Every time I touched it I got loud howls from the machine. The pot is soldered into the circuit board, so I needed that specific pot. Couldn't find one on the 'net, so called Whites, with the intention of buying one. tech said...no problem I'll put one in the mail. No charge! So I got it yesterday, and took things apart last night and got the new one installed. Took about 1 1/2 hours. had a tough time getting the old one out (5 pins). Then had to drill out the holes with a #59 drill to allow the new one to go in. The rest was easy. Now I've got a nice backup unit for the GMT, and for a buddy to use when I'm out and about. Whites never ceases to amaze me with their service.
