it looks like a graph with out anything graphed on it with both axis drawn and it goes right down the middle (its on your poketch obviously) and you click it and circles will appear. after that it will then make a little blurb if there is a item near by.

Note that the circle does mean its scan range, if there's an item in one side and you click on the opposite one, it won't reveal it.
You don't need to see it there beforehand though, if you know its exact location you can just press A when looking at it.

And here's a bit of trivia. If you scan and it finds a plate (those that boost one move type, the ones for Arceus), then the app will go crazy, with circles appearing over and over, with it unable to show the item location.
There are three types of people in the world: people that can count, and people that can't.

Found an item with the DM. It took awhile for me to realize that I can't be standing on top of an item.
