The new pinpointer from the Russian company Sphinx 03 is breaking popularity records abroad. In Poland, in the name of sick political correctness, there is hate that this is not allowed, one pinpointer is the life of one Ukrainian. Ideology has reached the bottom, because what can be said about Russian tanks used on the Ukrainian front or about the pinpointers themselves, which the Ukrainians themselves are asking about? What about the gas we buy from Russia, so won’t we heat our homes and refuel our cars?!
There is no point in combining passion with politics, it has never been good for anyone, at least not in this way, so what do we get new in version 03?
The set includes, apart from a holster – I already have a second thigh holster – only one for the belt (my version is a test version, so it may change), we also have a lanyard and a charging cable. Not much has changed here, but the first difference that catches the eye is the built-in internal battery and the USB-C charging connector. Some will be delighted, others will complain that a replaceable battery will be better in the field. Who likes whatever?
Water resistance to 6 meters remains unchanged. Automatic switching on and only when removed from the holster – we know it from the previous model, loss alarm or switching to switching off mode if the pinpointer is not used. Changing the tone, volume, 4 sensitivity modes, flashlight, LED indication of the battery discharge level and additional tuning is a copy of what was previously presented to us.
What’s new is simple discrimination, the color is signaled by a green LED on the housing cap or a red one, all accompanied by a change in tone and vibration.
I can already hear the howling, who needs discrimination in pinpointers?! Well, why?! Most of us won’t find it useful, but there are exceptions. First of all, the beaches are covered with an awful lot of caps. Sphinx 03 will allow you to avoid priceless waste of time, and secondly, it is an ideal solution for diving, where we make our work much easier in a difficult environment. The last place is the areas full of iron, splinters, or nails, and we will be much better there too.
Everyone must decide for themselves what will be better for them. So are there any other new features – or solutions that distinguish the Sphinx 03 pinpointer from other pinpointers available on the market? Yes, and it’s an app. Who needs a pinpointer application? Village idiots are tearing their clothes and screaming at the heavens! Just for them, for those who do not read the instructions and do not know how to switch functions using one button and the combinations associated with it!
But how?! It’s incredibly simple, you can connect to the pinpointer and switch all the functions on the smartphone screen and, in addition, check the exact battery charge level… The application will be in English and maybe even in Polish, we still have to wait for that.
Update in pinpointer?
In the future, the manufacturer also provides for the possibility of remote software updates. Are there any other questions?
Good because it’s Russian?!
How could this pinpointer be so sensitive and good and, on top of that, Russian?! The problem lies in our stereotypical beliefs, acquired over the years, that everything Russian is bad and is of no use. Times have changed and it’s time to wake up.
Sphinx 03 is currently the best pinpointer with the largest number of settings and configuration options on the market, and also the most sensitive. The manufacturer also added a cover for the tip of the pinpointer to protect it from abrasion.
