Rated5out of5byPowder-hunting PetefromSave a life, and possibly your ownUsed this product while free riding and doing back country snowshoeing tours here in Switzerland and Austria. Got caught in two avalanches last year, and despite not getting buried, felt good to know that I had this on so my friends would have a better chance at finding me.
Loved that I merely had to slide the mechanism on top of the device to either search or send. Very easy! Loved that it allows me to see multiple people, and it tells me which person is alive, and which is dead, so I can choose to focus on saving those still alive.
Great system. Used by all of my swiss-guide friends here in the area.
