  1. Realizing that the Axiom is not in anyone's hands yet other than testers, I'll assume Z-Lynk is Z-Lynk and have the following question... (I bet you smart cookies already know it based in the subject line). I have a brand new Pro-Sonic system here should I hold off on it and use it on my Axiom instead of the built in Z-Lynk. I'm aware of the internal vs external yadda yadda... Has anyone done a flat out comparison between the two technologies? I have ZERO experience with Z-Lynk and the one Pro-Sonic I had before this one was rubbish and had lots of EMI noise from my 5000..... (this one I have now I've tested and it works great). I'm starting to divest myself of my Minelab stuff, is Z-Lynk good enough that I can dump the Pro-Sonic on the classifieds ? Thank you in advance for reading and for commenting if you have DIRECT experience with using both technologies... Jen
  2. As I stand here in a pile of black and orange pin pointers, from Garrett and Minelab, credit card in hand trying not to purchase (but wanting to soooooooo badly) the Z-Link Garrett pin pointer...... someone please either push me off the ledge or talk me off of it. My Axiom is ordered, should I get the compatible pin pointer? What experiences have any of you had with this pin pointer (obviously not used with the Axiom as it's not out yet) but do the coil windings false every detector within 50 miles like my black Garretts and Minelab's of the past, does it start beeping when you turn it on and false if you even make eye contact with it? I must have over $500 invested in pin pointers that have been a bit disappointment... the only one I've REALLY loved was actually my Coiltek... LOL.. Coiltek? WHUT YOU TALKIING BOUT WILLIS.. I can hear you all saying already.. Yes they made the best pin pointer ever made in my opinion..... but I digress... Let's have a chat about the Z-Lynk compatible pin pointer if you've used it, plus'es, minus'es .... interference, falsing etc.... Do I buy one? Please don't fill this thread up with dialog about the need or non need for one, let's say hypothetically that yes I have decided to get one, is the Z-Lynk Carrot worth $170.00? This'll be fun..... thanks all... looking forward to your feedback. PS: Admin/Mods, can you please add a "Z-Lynk" tag, I could not add one/not found. If there is already a thread on this, please delete, thanks.
  3. The Axiom uses Garrett’s proprietary Z-Lynk audio system. At 17 ms it is easily faster than the 30 ms threshold it takes for most people to perceive audio lag. The transmitter is built into the detector, and the receiver into the headphone. Pairing is almost instant and once paired, just turn on the detector, good to go. Way less hassle than Bluetooth in that regard. The waterproof Z-Lynk enabled Garrett Pro-Pointer AT can be added as an option, and will seamlessly pair with the headphones and detector both, so you can use and hear the pinpointer without removing headphones. Finally, buy a Z-Lynk transmitter box, and it will work with every detector you have, and the pinpointer also. It is actually probably the best one stop solution for wireless on multiple detectors. The only issue is you have to like the fit and sound produced with the MS3 headphone with single volume control. If not, get a receiver box, and use your favorite wired headphones plugged into it.

  4. Hi. Just received the mdt 8000. Would love to hook up the garret z link. Which adapter do you all use if you use the wireless with the tarsacci? And, any suggestions for the settings in red dirt?? Thanks in advance!
  5. Newbie here,how do I connect the Garrett Z-Lynk to the Equinox 600? Doesn't the WT-1 box of the Z Lynk have to be physically connected to the 600 via adapter cord? I didn't see any such cord on the Minelab site. I just bought this 600 havn't even used it yet but fter reading post from different sources, I think I'm going to hate this thing.
  6. From what I have experienced, you can only silence the audio on the probe with Z-Link. The vibrate will still sound on the probe. If this was intended to be a stealth mode, it's not. If there are people near by, they will hear the vibrate moter making noise. Kind of defeats the purpose. I would like to see a complete silent mode at the probe and audio in the headset. Your thoughts?
  7. Is it me, or am I missing something here. How do you tell how much battery capacity there is? I believe somewhere I was reading about the universal Z-link module led will blink with 3 hours left. Is this true for the headphones? If so, that would drive me crazy not knowing the level until then. Scenario: Leave the house to detect 6-8 hours or more, hour into the hunt led flashes, meaning only 3 hours left, for a total of only 4 hours. This will cause me to recharge the headphones before every hunt. Even iIf they didn't really need it. Probably shorten battery life, too. If this is the case, maybe Garrett needs to add a battery level meter on the headphones or wireless to the AT MAX with an icon showing the level on the display. Your thoughts?
  8. As has become common with all modern detector manufacturers, Garrett has a proprietery audio transmitter/receiver system called Z-Lynk. The typical application is a transmitter internal to the detector's control pod and a proprietary (MS-3) headphone. What I'm wondering is if the standalone Z-lynk receiver is compatible with their detectors that have the built-in transmitters. This would be analogous to the Minelab Equiunox WM08 module which allows the user to attach his/her favorite headphones instead of being 'stuck with' the proprietary ML80 headphones. I do see that Garrett sells the receiver separately but that could be as a replacement for an (out-of-warranty) Z-Lynk T/R pair. It would certainly make sense that the answer is 'yes' but I haven't found on either their website or YouTube instructional videos that they discuss this particular application (internal transmitter to external receiver). Then again, I haven't watched all their videos.
  9. Hello. Using the forum search didn't bring up a confirmation. So, if this was asked in the past I'm sorry for the repeat. My question is, will the Garrett MS-3 Z-Lynk wireless kit work with the MXT or DFX? The manual states compatible with nearly any brand; and from detector pro I know they have a special white's switch build in. Anyone using this setup for his White's detector?
  10. Hi All, I am a newbie and purchased a Garrett AT Max. I am having trouble pairing the MS-3 Z-Lynk Headphones to the AT Max. Am I missing something? Manual says push the 2 buttons with headphones on. Did this like 50 times.
  11. Just curious since I have a pair of the Garretts that I haven't touched since I got my Equinox. I love the headphones and while I like the Minelab wireless phones for me the Garretts are superior. Any of you folks use them on your Equinox? Bill (S. CA)

  14. Contemplating getting the Garrett Zlink module, since it has the same latency as the WM module. Anyone using it? If so so, any compatibility issues? TIA
  15. I seen they are available now on the Garrett website . I ordered one from Metaldetectors.com . Im looking forward to trying this one out and cuttin the cord.

  17. Garrett News Release - Lightning-Fast Garrett Z-LinkTM Wireless Technology As announced earlier this year, Garrett will soon be rolling out wireless technology. The first introduction, to be formally announced later this fall, will be a Wireless Transmitter/Receiver Kit that will work with virtually any brand of metal detector and/or headphone combination. These wireless modules will employ unique Garrett Z-Link Wireless Technology providing a near-zero delay time between the detector and headphones. The Garrett units will operate six times faster than Bluetooth (the speed claimed by some current wireless transmitter kits). This means you are hearing the target signal while the searchcoil is directly over the target, helping you to pinpoint and recovery your targets more accurately, The new Wireless Transmitter/Receiver Kits can be ordered with either a 1/4-inch headphone jack cable (PN: 1627100) or a Garrett 2-pin AT connector cable (PN: 1627110, for use on AT Pro, AT Gold, or ATX units). The transmitter and receiver modules can be recharged with the supplied USB cables by attaching them to your laptop, your vehicle's USB port, or to a phone charger's USB power block. When fully charged, the units will provide up to 30 hours of operation-significantly longer field time than offered by other wireless models. More product information, including pricing will be announced later. Seen below is one of the Wireless Transmitter/Receiver Kits. Following the release of the new Garrett Wireless Transmitter/Receiver Kit, the Garrett Z-Link Wireless Technology will be implemented into future metal detectors and headphones. One of the products sure to create attention will be a new All-Terrain (AT) product that is slated for a spring 2017 release. Just like the current AT Pro, AT Gold, ATX, and Pro-Pointer AT, this new machine will maintain its waterproof integrity while adding exciting new features, including built-in Garrett Z-Link Wireless Technology for headphones. More specific details on this detector and other wireless accessories will be made available in early 2017.
