No. The VM-510FFL+ is a stand-alone system. It only requires the transmitter to work.

Yes, the VM-510FFL+ stand-alone A-Frame can locate cable. In fact every time the user lifts the a-frame from the soil, the VM-510FFL+ automatically switches over to a cable locator. As soon as the user inserts the spikes into the soil, the unit automatically switches back to a fault locator.

Yes, the VM-510FFL+ offers push-button depth. This is very important, because users need to a) locate the cable, b) locate and mark the fault, and c) know the depth for digging and repair purposes.

No. Even the 1w VM transmitters now include 8KFF frequency for fault locating. Having the 8kFF frequency on all VM transmitters (except for 810 & 850) allows for this system to meet any budget.
