Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little device We have bought about 5 of these now. Our operatives use them all the time to check walls before we start work. Great value.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from skip this, get a divining rod Bought this having already drilled through one cable causing the trip to go. Warning: This is not a cable finder and should be remarketed as "sporadic beeping machine", the presence of a stud/cable/pipe has less impact on whether it beeps than how you hold the device. The same spot can be scanned with different results - after 20 mins of trying to get this thing to give me some kind of clue where the cables were running I gave up and just went left a bit. You would be better off with a divining rod or just wave your palm move the wall shouting beep sporadically for a similar function.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement Bought this to replace a broken detector I had. This is nicely packaged in a tin box and instructions are very clear. Comes with batteries so able to use straight away. Easy to use with traffic light system and high pitched tone for wires. Recommended

Will this detect steel tie wires in a cavity wall- there may be a gap between the bottom of the detector and the sand and cement joints inbetween the bricks

Intend using to locate possibly rusted tie wires in a cavity wall where the joints are recessed
Asked by: Tom1833
Hi, Tom1833. As long as the wires are less than 70mm deep then you should have no porblems. Thanks, Bosch.

I keep getting false positives, how can I resolve this?

On walls (plaster on brick) in areas I know no metal or live wires gives red light / flash red and beeps. Similarly on ceiling. Has new batteries, has been allowed to warm up and is stored in its tin. Same for other half too. Help needed.

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.
