Default Bluetooth coils for your CELLPHONE ... now available!

I said this was coming and low and behold, here it is. Bluetooth coils that sync with your cell. Just d/l the software. Pretty neat, kinda like a Deus. Company says the single frequency is currently in the works and multi-frequency is coming soon. Should be interesting.

Pretty neat concept! I'm curious to see how much it costs and how well it works. Who's going to be the guinea pig around here?

Exactly what I was thinking.

That is quite a fascinating concept! But....any ad Ive ever seen claiming to turn your so and so into a PROFESSIONAL so and so inevitably does NOT.
Im almost assuming this will turn out in a similar fashion...almost.

Do they have a working model yet or is this one
of those crowdfunding situations?

In the comments they asked what an XP deus is. Pretty sure they know nothing about professional detectors.

It is a little different but that coil looks deus inspired. Neat concept if it works!

If it works you could use your old phone (who doesn't have a couple laying around) or buy an inexpensive android pay as you go phone and not activate it. I've seen them for 40 bucks. Then you don't have to worry about your phone's battery getting drained. And you won't have a bunch of other apps draining your battery in the background. That's how I would do it.

I would do the same,excellent point! No apps to be running or to corrupt the detector program as its running...and if the battery croaks its not your main phone anyway...

I like it. Just think if you had a 4x6 or 5x10 coil that could be embedded in the sole of your boot...you could always have a detector with you and carry only your cell phone.

Only the price.
Hook this to your Android phone and you would kill it in parks with rings 4" or less. To me this is the future of metal detecting. You could have a coil sending the pic to your phone.

I like the concept , just dont expect much performance from an app. Could work out to be a decent " basic " detector though.
