Rated 1 out of 5 by from Untrustworthy detection I've used this many times and have found it very inconsistent. It seems to give too many false positives. You end up thinking that the whole wall cannot be made of metal or electrified so you end up guessing anyway. I've drilled through a customers water pipe because I just couldn't trust the readings I was getting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the best Bought this as we're getting a conversion and to minimise damage to the new walls? Problem is most new wall panels are insulated/ foil backed! As a result the detector picks up the foil or doesn't pick up the stud. Older boards should be fine but be aware it's poor for new boards.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok for electric/metal Picks up electric on opposite wall which in a way is too sensitive as it buzzes a lot. Also picks up metal but unfortunately not nails for stud walls - so no help with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent multidectot Excellent product which is simple to use and reassuring. I purchased this item because I didn’t have the confidence in the more complex Bosch GMS120 which I feel was more complicated to understand with its light, sounder and display. I used it to detect metal conduit (carrying live wires) which it done accurately. Note , according to the manual it does not detect wood in timber studwork.

Plaster board- "scannable?"

Hi there. There appear to be conflicting answers as to whether or not this device will scan plaster board - some answers say yes fine, but there is one that says it will not scan through plaster board. Please could you clarify? Hope ok and many thanks.

Does it work when cavity is filled with Celotex/Kingspan/Foil Backed Insulation Board?

Asked by: Outnabout2005
Hi Outnabout2005. Foiled backed insulation can be problematic for digital detectors. Thanks, Bosch.

Finding nails & screws

Hi, Does this device defrentiate between screws/nails and things youwould hope to avoid like wire and pipes? I woudn't want ti giving me a red light because it'sd detecting the nails or screws that hold the plasterboard in place...
Asked by: Doferdude
Hi Doferdude, depending on the size of the screws it would most probably show you an amber light (drilling not recommended). Thanks, Bosch.

Will the detector pinpoint electric heating wires covered with 2mm levelling compound situated under 6mm ceramic floor tiles bedded on flexible adhesive ?

Asked by: Joel51
Hi Joel51, you should have no problem to detect the heating wires underneath those materials with this tool. Thanks, Bosch.
