I will be picking up a GPZ in a couple of weeks and the info online so far highlights that the standard coil is a bit large for pinpointing targets.
To date I've not considered a separate pinpointing device but this machine seems to need one.
There are a variety of units available and it would be good to hear your experience and recommendations on which units work well.

G'day peteren,

I found out the other day that the Garret Propointer does NOT play up with the GPZ. So there is one option for you.

Cheers.

Mike.

Yes, and the new updated one, is waterproof, and has adjustable sensitivity, like the Minelab one does. I've had both and the Garret  seemed to be tougher built. The Minelab one is a bit touchy.

Hi everyone,,
I'm thinking of a pinpointer because the detector scene is geared up for the small stuff which give no weight sensation in the hand with the dirt.... I've read the posts (3/15) but would like to hear more comments as to whether different brands may play up with ML gear and are suitably constructed for the real prospecting life and are value for money.
I'm finding that a lot of time is spent locating the sub,sub gram bits and so having a pointer may be the ducks tucker ...What do members think?? Are pointers as good as the blurbs say??? noyungan

I plan on trying one of these, a bit bulky but has some addition uses in that it can discriminate between Fe and non-Fe

Re pinpointers, which ones will detect at the greatest distance a .5 to 1g nugget?
Regardless of if they have issues with the detector.
we have seen a pinpointer used and it would only pick up a signal less than 1" from target, and that was a large steel bolt head target.
If i had a pinpointer i would like it to find some sort of signal at least 2" to 3" hopefully to make it worthwhile.
just asking!
