In our Garrett AT Max review, we’ll highlight what’s new with this heavy duty model from the USA’s metal detecting powerhouse, Garrett.
About the Garrett AT Max Detector
The ‘AT’ in the ‘AT Max’ stands for all-terrain. That should give you some hint to the kind of detector this offering from Garrett is – it’s great for water (salt or fresh) and all kinds of soil.
If you’re serious about underwater metal detecting, grab an AT Max bundle that includes the Pro-pointer AT pinpointer – we recommend this pinpointer as the best pinpointer for metal detecting.
We love that the AT Max comes with wireless headphones. The integrated circuitry transmits audio tones to the wireless headphones at a speed six times faster than Bluetooth speed. Detecting without a cord between your ears and the machine is so convenient.
The LED screen is backlight, which is great for low light situations.
The Garrett AT Max Detector is best for:
- Coin and relic hunting on land
- Gold prospecting
- Jewelry hunting
- Beach hunting
- Fresh water hunting
- Cache hunting
- Relic hunting
