OK so I'm just starting on Next Island and been playing a week. I have the mining scanner (I'm at work so I don't have the name on me) and it just informed me the other day that it had reached tier 0.9 and could not improve unless I upgraded it. The shopping list of 5 piles of various materials needed for the upgrade included 2 materials I had seen dropped or had mined before (animal oil and some crystal or other) but the other stuff...pile of garnets and some manufactured-sounding component, I have no idea if these items even can be found on Next Island. I certainly haven't seen every drop, ore or enmatter on NI in my first week, but as the first ever upgrade for this device I'm hoping these aren't super rare or expensive items, especially since it was buckets of the stuff, of each of the 5 things. The one that sounded like a component...it wasn't a recipe on the technician npc (I bought all available books and bps since I figured I'd want them eventually.) They wouldn't have a Next Island prospecting device that couldn't be upgraded with just NI available materials, would they? At the noobiest level tier 0.9 upgrade point?
