The latest generation of the Rover UC comes with everything that beginners as well as advanced treasure hunters expect from a perfect ground scanner:
Simple and intuitive operation,
Lightweight, compact and inconspicuous design as well as
Acoustic, haptic and visual feedback
allow treasure hunters to achieve best measurement results of the underground without attracting attention.
The compact outdoor measuring device is disguised as a walking stick and thus hardly noticeable as a treasure detector. In combination with the Smartwatch as Control Unit, the Rover UC is a smart detector that offers additional functions.
Detectorists and treasure hunters familiar with OKM detectors know that the Rover UC is not just a metal detector with Magnetometer and Pinpointer: Rover UC is a 3D ground scanner. The integrated single-sensor technology allows to create high-resolution three-dimensional graphics of the subsurface.
Advantages of the Rover UC at a Glance
Like OKM's renowned 3D ground scanners, the Rover UC convinces with its perfect blend of usability, functionality, ergonomics and design, too. With its minimal weight of only 500 g (17.6 oz) and a length of only 67 cm (26") when folded, the 3D ground scanner can be taken anywhere:
Concealed Capabilities: The Most Inconspicuous Detector with the Best Depth Performance
Finding treasures in secret has never been easier with the Rover UC metal detector - after all, the 'UC' designation of this 3D ground scanner actually means Undercover. The name already indicates that the detector is perfectly camouflaged for performing undisclosed measurements. Without arousing any interest or attracting curious glances, treasure hunters can search in places where they were previously unable to conduct undisturbed measurements.
Multifunctional and Powerful: OKM Sensor Technology
The multifunctional Rover UC detector is based on the reliable and powerful OKM sensor technology. This allows treasure hunters to detect objects such as jewelry, coins, artifacts, boxes and chests as well as chambers, graves or tunnel systems hidden in the underground.
Thanks to the implementation of modern and power-saving components as well as an integrated rechargeable battery, the detector can be used for several hours.
Smart Treasure Hunting with Fitness Tracking and Compass
The integrated fitness tracker not only turns the Rover UC into a multifunctional trekking pole, but also completes its camouflage. If the Rover UC user is discovered and attracts suspicion, he can open the activity screen by only one click, which - as usual for fitness applications - will display the pedometer and heart rate.
To further emphasize the function of a trekking pole, a compass is also integrated. However, this not only assists with orientation in the terrain, but is also of great advantage for 3D ground scans: Experience shows that treasure hunters achieve better results with measurements in a north-south (or south-north) orientation, since the measurement paths follow the earth's natural magnetic field.

How to Get Best 3D Scan Images
Many users ask what their scans are showing. In fact, a successful analysis requires not only the ability to "read" the scan image properly, but also to create a good ...
Individual Treasure Hunting: Easily Customize Detector and App
Thanks to the telescopic rod, the height of the Rover UC can be individually adjusted to the height of the treasure hunter in order to guarantee a comfortable posture. Another positive effect of the height adjustment: With increasing length, the sensors in the detector detect more sensitively and are thus even more capable of detecting smaller objects at greater depths.
In the OKM Rover UC App, users can choose from the following languages:
Depending on the time of day and the site, different theme designs can be useful. Detector users can choose between bright day and dark night mode to see the information on the display more clearly and to remain inconspicuous even in the dark.
Select Feedback: Sound, Vibration and Visualization
Sounds are not only essential for VLF detectors, but also play an important role in the Rover UC 3D ground scanner:
giving feedback in the operating mode Magnetometer
as a metronome to support the performance of 3D Ground Scan measurements
To ensure the undercover character of the detector, Bluetooth headphones can be connected to the smartwatch or alternatively to a smartphone. This way, only the treasure hunter can hear the acoustic signals without attracting attention.
Vibration can additionally be switched on in the App's settings menu. Haptic feedback is especially helpful when the sound is turned off.
The small display on the handle of the Rover UC provides a brief overview with information on charging status, connection status, steps counted (pedometer) and orientation (compass). Furthermore, the progress of the current scan line is displayed during the 3D ground scan measurement.
The OKM App provides visual feedback on the Android smartwatch or alternatively on the smartphone:
In the operating mode 3D Ground Scan, the scan field is generated scan line by scan line as a 2D image during the measurement. After the scan has been finished and saved, the scan image can be enlarged and rotated via smartwatch touchscreen in order to analyze it in more detail in the resulting 3D image.
In the Pinpointer and Magnetometer operating modes, measurement values are shown on the display in real time.
Undercover Operations: The Rover UC Operating Modes
3D Ground Scan
Graphical 3D ground measurement with manual and automatic pulse triggering: After measuring the target area, a three-dimensional graphic is created that can be evaluated directly on the smartwatch display. For a detailed representation, the scan file can be transferred to the notebook and analyzed in the Visualizer 3D Studio detection software.
Magnetic field measurement to find metallic objects in the subsurface: The Magnetometer operating mode is used to acquire a quick overview of the target area. It is recommended that the location is cleared of unwanted metal objects using the Magnetometer before performing a 3D Ground Scan.
Basic target identification and visual metal discrimination between ferromagnetic and non-ferromagnetic metals: With Pinpointer, detected objects can be localized even more precisely and the type of target can be determined more easily.
The software for visualizing the scan data is already integrated in the OKM App for Android smartwatch and smartphone. This means that all measurements can be viewed immediately on site and no computer is required for the initial evaluation of the measurement data. On the touchscreen, 3D graphics can be rotated and enlarged with intuitive gestures.
Thanks to the high processing capabilities that smartwatches and smartphones offer nowadays, our engineers and software developers were able to develop an easy-to-use, high-tech 3D ground scanner.
Analyze 3D Ground Scans in Detail with Visualizer 3D Studio Software
The recorded data of the 3D ground scan can be stored in the smart Android device and viewed at any time. Users who prefer using a computer can transfer all scan data to the notebook and open the files directly in the Visualizer 3D Studio software.
The Visualizer 3D Studio software provides detailed information about the size of buried objects. In addition, high-resolution graphics can reveal even the shape and depth of the detected objects, if enough measurement data have been recorded. Further improvements and post-processing of the scan data are possible with the software's various filters.
Alternative to Smartwatch: Android Smartphone incl. OKM App
The OKM Rover UC App that is integrated in the smartwatch of course also works in the Android smartphone. Besides a larger display, a smartphone offers additional advantages: With activated SIM card (not contained in the scope of delivery), the usual functions such as phone, internet, contact management as well as other installed apps can be used.
