Ease Of Use
We have divided our Transceivers into 3 different categories depending on your level of experience.
These are generally Analogue receiving devices that require a little more experience to use well. However they do provide more accurate results and a greater range when searching
These devices are still fairly easy to use but do not give out a graphics display so you will need to interpret lights and sounds in order to find your victim
These are the easiest to use transceivers available. Most people could pick one of these up and find a victim in a reasonable amount of time without ever having looked at a transceiver before. The graphic display will take you to the victims without having to interpret beeps and lights. Although these are easy to use, we still advise people to go on an Avalanche training course before embarking on any backcountry excursion.
Digital transceivers are easy to use and, because they are digital, they often come with a host of additional functions. Some include graphic rich displays to make it easy to find a burial.
Get the best of both worlds. Use the analogue function to locate the victim from distance and then, as you approach, switch to the digital to more easily pin point the location using the user friendly digital screen.
Intelligent Transceivers contain a position sensor, which can analyze the position of the device in the avalanche and switches to the best transmitting antennae. Worst coupling positions are thus eliminated and you are found easier every time
Fixed antennae transmit in the same way, no matter what direction a burial is laid in.
