Beginning July 1, AT Pro metal detectors being manufactured by Garrett will feature an upgraded stem configuration. In response to customer requests, a new upper stem configuration moves the AT Pros armrest farther back on the users forearm and also includes a new middle stem with camlock fasteners, adding extra stability to the detector during use.

Garrett AT Pro Optional Upgrade / New Warranty Package:

This program is for AT Pro customers who ship their detector back to the Garrett factory in Garland, Texas. The modifications made to these detectors will be at a fixed price to anyone who ships them in (no dealer discounts apply).

* New upper stem with extended armrest will be added.
* New middle stem with camlock fasteners will be added.
* All AT Pro components (searchcoil, electronics, fasteners, etc.) will be inspected and, if necessary, repaired or replaced.
* Revised AT Pro detector is shipped from Garrett back to the U.S. customers address at Garretts expense. (Customer pays for original shipment to Garrett. International customers should contact Garrett Customer Service for shipping options.)
* New 2-year warranty included. Once this preventative maintenance / upgrade work is completed, the customers AT Pro will include a new 2-year warranty, effective from the date the unit is shipped back to the customer. (The new 2-year warranty replaces any existing Garrett warranty.)
* This AT Pro Optional Upgrade / New Warranty Program is available for any AT Pro received at Garretts Garland factory before December 31, 2011.

The value of the above service check, preventative maintenance work, replacement parts, and extended warranty period is $79.95. This cost, however, will be offered to all existing domestic AT Pro detector owners for a $39.95 special price. Therefore, no dealer discounts will be applicable for this optional upgrade. Customers can pay with check or money order accompanying their detector or via a credit card upon receipt of the detector at Garrett.

i think this detector might be in my future. Being they now stopped dredging for five years, i now bought a keene air pump/engine combo. Just wondering steve, they say the at pro can only go 10 feet. I'm not sure that's enough with the big holes we have.

Thanks for the info. about the AT PRO upgrade offer. I sent my AT PRO to Garrett yesterday and was told that it would only be a 10 day turnaround. it seems like a very good deal. Good hunting.

I thought I read somewhere that you only needed to send the control box and coil in, is this correct? Any other ATpro owners take note that you have to send it to Garrett by Dec 31 for this service.

The information is straight from the Garrett notice I received. They can't do the rod upgrade without the rod.
