Use Windows Mobile Phone As A Metal Detector

by mohit on March 6, 2010

Now, you can also carry a small, portable Metal Detector in your pockets in the form of a Metal Detector v0.01, a freeware application for your Windows Mobile Pocket PCs.

Metal Detector DESCRIPTION :

The built-in compass uses the earth’s magnetic field to calculate the deviation from magnetic north. As with every compass, if you put a piece of metal nearby, it gets deviated. That’s the scientific fact that has been used here to detect the metal.


Place your device flat on a surface. After starting the app, the gauge should show zero. If it doesn’t, take your device and write a couple of “eights” in the air (this is to get rid of magnetism which might get stuck in the sensors).>
Then use a pair of scissor or something the like and move it slowly to the right side of your device. At a distance of approx. 5 cm. the gauge should start to move. Take your device and move it with its right side near metals, and see if the gauge shows values.
