Selected 3D ground scanners and metal detectors utilize software applications which can be installed and used on Android devices such as smartwatch, smartphone and tablet. These OKM Apps are used as graphical user interface (GUI) to control the functionality of the detector – that connects via Bluetooth or WiFi – and visualizes the measured data in 3D graphics. Thus, the user can determine if any buried artifact, treasure or structure is hidden in the underground.
Today most people are using smartwatches, smartphones and tablets in their daily life. This familiarity is a great advantage for the metal detector user, who do not need to learn new operating procedures. If you know how to operate a smartphone or tablet, controlling OKM detectors by App is “a piece of cake”.
