hello!
 does anyone know if the "apex" was beta tested in trashed parks
before it was released!...i don't see any evidence that this was done by garrett's
payroll help,or anybody else?  i am assuming it was given to "regular folks"
to use in everyday settings! i need and want to see there "input!"..non-biased
test results!..c/mon garrett you know you did this!..lets see it in print!

(h.h.!)

Isn't Garrett one of those companies that only use in-house field testers?

Of course it’s been tested. However, if you are wanting what most people would call unbiased reports you will need to wait until after the release in July so that users who purchase the detector can report on it.

No, I’ve done stuff for Garrett in the past, and I am sure others have.

yeah! i don't have a clue!  if that is true, you couldn't expect a 
"non-bias" evaluation!  have to wait for "regular folks" to evaluate it!..i suppose!

Well if you can talk Garrett into letting testers speak I'm all for it. Id just be surprised to see it happen is all. And no, I was not one of them.

i agree! don't believe that would ever happen! as you mentioned, and i agree, ya gotta 
let people buy it, and listen to their comments in the field! it's the only way to get a '
"realistic" evaluation.

      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.
