So what is happening to Garrett metal detectors? They seem to be stagnating and have not come out with  great detector since the ATX, and even that was based around the Infinium and a mine detector.
Maybe their hobby hand held metal detector manufacture is going the way of Tesoro? pale affraid
Also Whites and Fisher have become a bit boring although the Whites BH TDI and the TDI PR OZ are good if you like beach hunting. The TDI OZ does a fair job in the gold fields.

Trouble is it is still a single frequency machine and a tricked up version of the AT Pro and AT Gold. Nothing new really.

By the looks of it, a major stagnation across the board of most metal detecting companies Adrian Shocked  All that's been showing up in the last few years is based more around cosmetic changes to past technology, than innovation towards more powerful new concepts. Alas, detecting technology has all but hit rock bottom Shocked Sad

I think you are correct Kon.
Even the trendy coin and relic machines with tricky visual displays still have limited discriminating ability that is really not much better than some of my old VLf TR machines. Detectors like the Equinox are good but really not much better than my Sov XS and Safari. My Whites 6000 DI Pro and 6000 DI Series 3 each have an excellent analogue discrimination display that is very very accurate and the disc display operates in the GB All Metal mode. These tactas are ancient.
I guess there is only so much info you can extract from a magnetic wave and eddy currents aye. We need a new detection concept.
