Yup in the air.
Though it's seems more in the ground.
Don't forget you can tune to ground and even detune to any target with a quick press of the button. You can actually make any targets disappear.

Ya I asked the lady rep, why not just test each one before you send it out , take a dime put it in mode 3 and see if it hits that dime at 2" if not fix it

As SL52 mentioned you are most likely in the weakest setting. You should get more than 3/4”

After it's on. Press and hold until it beeps and or vibrates. Then light will be flashing.
Here you have 6 modes of operation.
Three beep and vibrate.
Three vibrate only.
Each press moves from one thru three.
Vibrate three. Levels 1..2..3 of sensitivity.
Then vibrate beep levels 1..2..3.
That depends on what mode you started in.
Love my Carrot !!!

A genuine Garrett product is made in the USA but their "Carrot" is a common Chinese knock off. Did you purchase it from a proper dealer or from some place like Amazon?

Not seeing this part but to reiterate…
1 is weakest, 2 is medium, and three is maximum. I set on 2 and dig extra if I cant find the target. Usually if I try 3 the whole plug sounds off and then indicative of larger item buried.

Glad to hear you were quickly taken care of. I started with an original black Garrett pinpointer that worked okay but was only used a lot for one year. I moved on, but with the new Z-Lynk design and pairing with the MS-3 Headphones, I have c been very pleased and rely on the orange Z-Linked ProPointer!

Took it out for a real dig , and i was pleasantly supersized plenty of depth in 2 strength . easy to hear , my Mi 4 was hard to hear , not the Garrett, when i turned it on it turned on when i turned it off it went off. I cant tell you how frustrating the Mi 4 was somtimes when turning it on it would go into another mode, and same shutting it off. somthing is way smoother than my other pinpointer picture is of todays finds using it
