Rated 4 out of 5 by from Detector Detected Reasonable value and it helped guide a difficult attachment of a TV bracket. It’s not clear about lateral sensitivity. This makes it difficult to know if it’s detecting something immediately underneath or close by.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job well The ratings on this speak for themselves. Worked very well found stuff I knew was there. A little expensive but far better than some of the cheaper stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bosch metal/wiring detector Bought to replace a detector I've had 26 years and has just given up the ghost. This unit is so much better. Found it to be accurate and have not experienced false positives as stated in some reviews.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good buy Needed to fix heavy plate glass mirror to lath & plaster wall. Had tried my el cheapo wall detector but its bleeps and flashes made no sense, so pushed the boat out and bought the Bosch. Read manual carefully first (necessary), but then it found the lath nail heads in minutes with no difficulty - mirror screwed securely in no time - excellent result. Anyone want an el cheapo wall detector?? Free to a good home.....

I'm looking for a device which could detect cables beneath soil in the garden as we have mains gas and electric going to a building at the bottom of the garden. But also want something that will do the usual cables in walls as this machine seems to do. Ca

Can you recommend a specific device that does both? Or would I need something else for the soil earth detection? Its for domestic use essentially, DIY.

Will this detect lead in paint?

Asked by: Pedmar
Hi Pedmar, we doubt that lead paint will affect the Truvo's ability to detect, however if it is particularly old paint it might have more metallic lead (or metallic base) than modern (titanium based) paint. this would mean removing the static charge (placing uncovered hand on wall close to detecting) on the wall detecting on with caution as it is possible to get lead poisoning from over exposure to lead and lead based products.

What is the 'sideways' resolution for live wires behind bathroom tiling?

I am putting up a shelf below a mirror and know that I have a live cable since I have a shaver point nearby. If I knew where the cable ran to within +/-20 mm or so that would be great.
Asked by: Baldcoot
Hi Baldcoot, When passed over in 3 sweeps and wall has been ground by placing your hand above the area where you are detecting, the Truvo is able to accurately detect live wire behind wall tiles.

Will this detect foil tape behind plastic pipes?

The heating pipes in my house are plastic, but the building manual states that a foil tape has been fitted behind all plastic pipes - will this detect the foil tape to aid location?
Asked by: andyslowrider
Hi andyslowrider, the Truvo is capable of detecting metallic foil but not plastic or water filled plastic pipes.

Will the Bosch Truvo detect low voltage cables such as chasing an alarm cable?

Asked by: GaryMike
Hi GaryMike, The Truvo is capable of detecting metal cable but does not give a read out on if the cable is live or not. For an indication of live wires we recommend the universal D-tect, that has different settings for live wires or metal cables and pipes.
