Okay Garrett I Know It’s Got To Be A Video

Recommended Posts

Garrett didn’t wake up one morning saying we got a new detector and we’ll call it Apex . It had to be a lot of field testing and with lots of testing comes videos.

 Garrett must have a lid on anything leaking out before the Apex goes on sale.

PS Video made by someone other than Garrett what I’d like to see.

There will be plenty of time for field test videos to be released by Garrett's youtube "influencers" between now and July now that the lid is off.

I hope that some people who will actually evaluate it critically get one too, not just the Garrett only people.

That probably won't happen until after release as cynical as that sounds.

Nothing cynical about it. Testers will have signed NDAs and there will be nothing forthcoming until after the release, certainly nothing you might want to describe as "unbiased." But maybe between now and July we will see more Garrett sanctioned videos.

I don't need any videos. The Apex is a metal detector. It will beep and find stuff. It will do so as well as many detectors on the market, and not dramatically better than detectors that already exist on the market. This stuff has been splitting hairs for years now guys, and it's not like the Apex will be a total fail or on the other hand somehow change your detecting universe unless you own a complete piece of junk.

FYI Chuck when testing prototypes I think I only ever shot video twice to show something I was seeing. In fact it is often prohibited to be taking photos or video. Too easy for things like that to leak. Plus shooting video is a waste of time. I test stuff and write up reports. So assuming there are piles of tester video out there would not be reflected in my experience. Any video of unfinished product would never be released, it is only the final product that matters, and Garrett may at this point in time still be doing final testing and tweaking of the software.

So buck up and wait, no point in holding your breath. Look for true user based videos after release in late July, not before.

Make a perfect tester which is shown in video. It will be very helpful for us

My new toy will be here this coming Tuesday and so bird in hand is better than two in bush . I’m also getting a MI 6 Pinpointer to go with a toy I already have.

 I still wish the best to Garrett on this new detector the Apex.

 At my age it’s not if I’d use the Apex but just the joy of owning one.

Don’t be feeding the trolls Chase! :laugh:

The line after next did, so Chuck is forgiven. Be nice to us old folks! :smile:

      Looks like the Apex is as good as my Nox at finding lots and lots of junk.  lol

      With the word ACE in the title its going to replace those I think or at least be a big boost to them. The Apex is I think going to kill Vanquish sales , its likely to be far better and has many more settings than the Vanquish. 
      I don't care about waterproof on this machine. They are going for a lower end model not middle or top end. And I know some will say Simple X "As I call it"!  That is simple and has 1 frequency and is I have heard a lover of Iron . I actually think it is a middle end machine and will take orders from their own top enders like the AT series.
      I will be buying the Apex . With numbers from 1 to 99 and 5 tones it will outgun the Nox on target info "multi tone on the Nox is poo" . It can be used in single freqs though there are not the places to save your own programs in each mode like the Nox.
      As for battery replacement , if the machine isn't waterproof then it most likely can be stripped down , maybe the battery can be done by any old Joe Bloggs ? 
      Anyway I am on the list and I haven't anything that puts me off. Yet.

      ”Release date is in August some time.”
      These things always seem to take longer than planned. Don’t be holding your breath folks. It will be ready when it’s ready, and not before.

      I came across this you tube video of the Apex being “field tested”.  After watching the video, it’s not much more than a promotional video, however there are a few areas of interest.

      “HYBRID AUDIO SYSTEM - The Apex target audio provides the simplicity of binary audio (found on existing ACE detectors) with the additional benefits of subtle proportional audio for faint targets.”
      Binary audio is a fancy name for “beep.” No sound, or full volume beep. A deep target sounds like a shallow target. Beep.
      Some people prefer this as they want to be sure to hear all targets no matter what.
      Proportional audio means the signal strength is tied to the volume, so now you have strong beeps and medium beeps and faint beeps. This allows experienced detectorists to tell a deep target from a shallow target, or better discern small targets from large targets. However, if you don’t have sharp ears you might miss that faint target. Almost everybody else refers to this as modulated audio.
      Garrett is claiming to somehow do both, creating a “hybrid audio.” Strong targets will be clean solid beeps, while fainter targets will be proportional. I guess I’m missing what the difference is here between Garrett’s hybrid audio and normal modulated audio. In modulated audio strong targets do deliver clean solid audio hits, which fade on the weaker targets to fainter audio responses. Sounds just like what they are describing with this “new” hybrid audio.
      Don't know, maybe there is some difference in what Garrett is doing compared to the rest. Regardless, I do prefer proportional or modulated audio myself as being more informative about the nature of the target. Good modulated audio makes any kind of depth meter redundant, which is why I guess I never look at them.
