Hi All, I think my hearing is fading away a little bit, I saw on Facebook Wazzas Eyespy , any body tried this device? I'm concerned how to wire this thing up.

Think you just plug from detector headphone jack into the unit. Maybe ask him wazzas.eyespy@gmail.com
Good idea if it works as he says

I was looking at something like this for the deaf. I am going to go another direction, as in full sunlight, any light source can be a bit hard to see.
Once I’m on top of the enhancers, I’ll finish developing my idea which should help the profoundly deaf get into gold prospecting.

Looks like it could be a good thing for people who can't hear so well, but it might also be game changer for detecting those spots where the emi is over the top. A mate of mine has just got 1 and will hopefully get a chance to use it while I'm still over in GT. I think he has Monday off. I'll keep ya posted how it goes.

Okay, so I'm back home the land that gold forgot and have data again. So here is what happened. My mate set up the eye spy as per instructions which are included. (Before this it's worth noting a few observations. Although he was told it didn't come with batteries, it came with rechargable 9v batteries and a charger. The charger had plugs of the type used overseas but also came with an adapter to be able to use it. It was a poor fit and I'm not sure it was the right adapter for use in Australia, however it did work. My mate gave it a charge but not fully. The build quality looks a little cheap with plug fittings glued into the plastic housing. But it is still a works in progress as I understand it. After setting it up on his detector, a GPX 5000, he said the mounting bracket needs to be angled back a little.) We went out to a spot we have pulled some gold out of before that has a very strong emi pulse courtesy of a buried telstra cable running through the area. Old mate fired up the 5000 and after a quick set up of the detector dialled in the eye spy. The eye spy light only came on when a target was encountered and remained unaffected by the copious emi, which could be heard through the headphones which were also plugged into the adapter supplied with the eye spy. A metal fitting in the headphone adapter jack supplied with the eye spy kept falling out along with the headphones lead (ss300 headphones no problems with them). This fell out 2 or 3 times, although it didn't effect the operation of the eye spy. It did what Wazza said it does, lights up when a target is encountered and was unaffected by emi. The light is pretty visable and is quite noticeable when it lights up or flashes as you pass the coil over a target. There are a few bugs to be worked out in regards to adapters and fittings but the unit itself worked fine until the batteries went flat. They weren't fully charged so I don't know how long you might expect to get out of them on a full charge. Anyway that's my brief experience with Wazzas eye spy, and I will let you good people make up your own minds on if it might be suitable for you. Cheers Andy. smile

Hi all interested and concerned about Chewys report on my EyeSpy. The units are not glued together with plastic plugs the base is screwed on and the screws are coated in silicon for warranty purposes. The square power socket also has silicon around it to stop dust and moisture entry. My cable from the battery is 1.5 meters long and my fittings do not just fall out by any means unless pulled. Maybe the issue is the headphone cable length? The customer also bought a rechargeable battery charger and batteries from me as an extra and was told it was a cheap overseas unit. Its working fine as I said it would. The mounting bracket can be bent to suit each operator or detector as it is a universal one. At the right angle for you the light can't be missed in any sunlight. Any further questions feel free to contact me at wazzas.eyespy@gmail.com
Cheers to all Wazza.

Hi all I just thought I'd let you also know for those asking about a vibration system. I have that covered and can possibly fit to my EyeSpy as a extra later this year. Can make it work off the original unit but of course there are costs involved. I did a lot of research before the final unit was finished such as according to medical studies green is the last colour you see before going blind so that's why the EyeSpy has that colour indicator and can be seen clearly in direct sunlight. Red pigments are harder I've tried. Its in Gold Gem and Treasure this month so buy your copy and have a look. It does what I have said it can. Cheers Wazza.

After I see a video of the Eyespy connected to a GPX I will probably buy one. FOr now I can see a little problem with the wires connected to the Eyespy coming out straight, with the connectors at 90degrees would be less chance to damage them or to rip them out in thick bush.
