Most helpful review for Automax Precision v4

Jedi precision pointer. hehe
The Automax v4 is a most clutzy pinpointer. It is long and extremely awkward as well as an un balanced device. If you carry it and have long arms you'll be able to draw it from your belt. A lengthy rigid round shaft of almost 12 inches topped with a housing for the controls, speaker, battery housing. Then another 5 inch long handle.
Overall a device that June could fend off Darth Vader in a pinch. If you can get this ungainly thing into the hole where you are seeking the coin target it's length is difficult to deal with. Your trying to pinpoint with nearly two feet of pinpointer. The electronics are less than sensitive and you will need to zero it out before use.
The battery condition causes a drift so a fresh nine volt is a must. You can select speaker or vibrate dor indication, not both. When set up you might getneed to get within an inch of the search object before thus things will chime off of vibrate. Sensitivity sucks!

I think this thing needs a major redesign and shrinking. The circuit is mediocre and I never use mine.

Goes deep.
Very sensitive. I like the volume control. Turn it down for quiet areas or crank it up for heavy car traffic areas. I also use in silent mode sometimes looking at the flashing led which is cool. Another reason I love this pinpointer is since it has good depth it can be used to pinpoint before digging, which is awesome.
Goes 4 to 6 inches and you are hitting the spot dead on within one square inch.! One thing I should mention is that it is a pulsating pinpointer so you have to use small side to side motion to get best results.

Once you feel how to use it, the depth is great advantage. It can get tricky if what your digging up is on the side of hole though. Just try pinpointing with your detector or the pointer itself before digging. I love it, you can do a lot with it.
