The OKM Bionic X4 can be operated without smartphone, however the smartphone offers great benefits to your measurement: For both the Bionic and the Ionic scan mode, the smartphone with OKM App can be attached to the detector very easily.
The App offers a compass that is especially useful for Ionic Mode. In this scan mode, the gold prospector uses the compass to make sure the detector is pointing to the south. In this way the Bionic X4 will provide best scan results.
Use the smartphone camera to take pictures of the target area and possible spots that have been detected. A possible target object is indicated by a treasure symbol. As soon as you spot a possible target, you can take a picture of the target area.
Moreover, the App offers guiding lines and crosshairs to help you focus on potential targets. By using the crosshairs and target indication, treasure hunters can visualize and narrow down the possible target area. The direct location feedback helps to precisely target the desired treasure.
