Rated 5 out of 5 by from It actually works!! Having tried many stud/cable finders over the years with varying degrees of success, I bit the bullet and bought the Bosch as I have a ‘lot’ of cables and ceiling joists to find building our new demo room. Ok so it only comes with an AA battery holder adaptor which looks like it will get stuck in the device (it’s in two pieces that don’t click together!) but it also uses the 10v lithium batteries from my small impact driver and 10v drill so easy for me to use those existing batteries and charger :-) The device has been tested on most of the property now and is surprisingly accurate with 100% spot on the middle of each joist above the plasterboard ceiling. It also finds electric cables in small Round conduit behind the dot & dab walls. You get what you pay for and it certainly my sped up the ceiling mods no end. Sure it’s not perfect but does work ‘straight out of the box’ and copes with artex ceilings well. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accurate detector Easy to use straight out of the box. First job was to find joists in ceiling above plasterboard which had a rough coat render on it. Did the job well. Also tried out mapping some cables behind plasterboard. Again spot on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not perfect but it's V. good. Practice on a stud wall, pipes, cables, nails, get use to it, understand it... then you will be ready... I find studs, cables, pipes (copper) kitchen refits, amazing how you can map out pipes bending, cables leaning.... 4/5

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best detector to use A bit pricey, but that apart, easy to use straight out the box, accurate detection and clear buttons to use. I’ve used other machines and this is by far the best, easy to use and accurate, what more can you want! To those first time diy’ers or hardened professionals who need to find what’s behind your wall before you drill, buy this, you won’t regret it!

Will this detect live cables going over steel joists?

Will the device display what it has detected or does it just show that something is there?
Asked by: AnotherOldGeezer
Hi AnotherOldGeezer, this device will display a different kind of signal and light when going over a live cable. There should be no problem in detecting live cables over steel joints. Thanks, Bosch.
