My previous Garret (carrot) AT Pro-pointer was near perfection as a stand alone pinpointer so it looks like another one will be joining the family quite soon.
Having said that though, my very first Garrett carrot was quite problematic, it seemed to work sort of okay but really had multiple random issues. I was never entirely happy with it and phoned the seller twice on occasions about my concerns but was told that it sounded about normal. The issues just got worse and after almost one year's use it decided to constantly sound off and would not switch off at all without disconnecting the battery - so it was replaced under warranty. The replacement was absolutely flawless and was like comparing a rolls-royce to the knackered old Skoda that my old one acted like from new. The point here being that you won't actually necessarily know if something is working quite right or not unless you have something to compare it to. In this case I would have been put right off the Garrett carrot by my faulty one had I not experienced the use of a perfect one. My MI-6 when used as a stand alone seems to work without fault but just not in a very user friendly way compared to some others?

Absolutely correct easylife , good point,and that makes me think how many people are doing the very same with their detector !
They could be using it away merrily and little do they realise its working below par because it has a fault they don`t even realise or recognise it has ,because they know no better until they could compare theirs to some one else`s ,although this probably happens to people who`ve not had much experience with detectors to recognise there is a problem.But It does make you think how many are there out there its happening with.

I really like the subtle operation. I bought the Minelab 35 when it was released, but found it annoyingly loud and needed to put duct tape over the speaker to bring the din down to an acceptable level.
The vibration of the MI-6 is okay IMO, and I find the tones plenty loud enough for most conditions. A volume control, with an option to increase volume in situations with background noise, would be a very handy addition though
