Your traditional metal detector will allow you to locate an item buried below ground, but the accuracy of the location will vary depending on the quality of your metal detector, and you will rarely hit that bullseye. However, that in itself need not be an issue as that is where a pinpoint metal detector comes into its own.
Digging a large area to uncover that treasure consumes both time and energy. Also, due to having only limited knowledge of where that elusive item lies, you run the real risk of inadvertently damaging the object. A pinpointer solves all of those problems by telling you more precisely where to start digging and it can do this even down to ½ an inch.
This pocket-sized tool is not just your normal handheld metal detector. With models including an led light to help illuminate your search, an audio beep or buzzer vibration, along with increased sensitivity levels for those coins and jewelry, a pinpointer will become your go-to tool. Suddenly, finding that object that triggered your detector is made a whole lot easier thanks to your pinpointer.
