These Schonstedt magnetic locators have improved membrane switches so the volume and sensitivity controls are easy to adjust with one hand. The control panel also provides the user with both audio and visual indicators to communicate polarity, signal strength, and gain level to quickly and accurately pinpoint a ferrous target and determine its orientation. In addition, the battery level is indicated by a 4 segment bar graph on the control panel.
A unique feature of this Schonstedt locator is its retractable shaft that can be extended for greater accuracy and retracted for storage and ease of carrying. The locator is fully operational whether it’s completely opened (26”) or retracted (15.5”) as well as any position in between. Locating professionals will love the ease and convenience of bringing this compact, lightweight (2.4lb), and rugged survey pin finder to any job site in its belt mounted holster.
The GA-92XTd battery compartment is now located in the pistol grip handle for easy access and is operated by one 9V battery that will provide about 24 hours of intermittent use.
The Schonstedt GA-92XTd magnetic locator is a high impact ABS modular construction with an IP54 rating for dust and water.

Schonstedt GA-92XTd Magnetic Locator
The Schonstedt handheld magnetic locator is very easy to operate. They have really made this almost idiot proof to operate. I like that it slides in and out to save space when not in use.
This locator is super convenient in the fact that you can use it with one hand and it has visual indicators and is super lightweight. This makes locating super easy and almost foolproof, though you still have to know what you're doing. Also the warranty is for like eternity so you can trust that it's going to last.
Very effective magnetic locator. The display helps if you are having any issues with hearing the audible speaker. Very accurate.
This locator is great! Schonstedt really knows what we need in the field. The ability to put this in the holster and keep my hands free but keep the locator nearby has been one of my favorite features.
