Current warnings / Avoid those companies


Do not buy any detectors from the company 'Gökalp Elektronik' from Istanbul!

This company is selling non-functional fakes (pirate copies) as well as errornous and out-dated software. If you already purchased a device from this company please contact us!

We already tested one of those devices and has been shocked about the results. Most wires had no connection. Some of the functions were not available anyhow. It was not possible to accomplish correct measurements and the results were not repeatable nor valid.

This mainly - but not exclusively - concerns the devices Rover C II and Rover Deluxe.
