  • Fast internal processor essentially eliminates lag so you can quickly search for a victim without having to wait for your transceiver
  • 3 receiving antennas allow excellent precision and pinpoint search capabilities no matter what position the victim is buried in
  • Mechanical search/transmit switch clearly indicates the mode you are in and is easy to operate; pull the switch to enter search and push it back in to return to transmit
  • Numeric distance display shows approximate distance in meters to buried transmitter; pinpoint search loudspeaker provides reinforcement to visual data
  • When searching, LED lights indicate the direction of the victim's signal; simply rotate the transceiver and proceed as the lights indicate
  • Special Mode narrows the search angle field to assist in searches for multiple burials; indicator light illuminates when multiple burials are detected
  • Tracker2 has a thinner profile and harness than the Backcountry Access Tracker DTS (sold separately); rubberized housing provides a sure grip
  • Included holster harness system allows the unit to be easily removed for searching
  • Operates on 457 kHz frequency and is fully compatible with other 457 kHz units; functions as a transmitter and receiver
  • Uses 3 AAA alkaline batteries (included), which provide a minimum life of 250 hrs. in transmit mode; 50 hrs. in receive mode

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favourite Beacon I've Used The Tracker 2 is my favourite beacon I've used. It's fast, accurate and easy to use. The display screen and arrows make it intuitive and with 3 receiving antennas its very fast. There is less waiting for the digital beacon to think than many others that I have used. With no lag you can move quickly through your rough search and it eliminates much of the frustration of lag while doing your grid and fine search. With practice this beacon becomes incredibly quick even in multiple burial situations. The multi burial function lets you know right away if it is picking up more than 1 signal and gives you an edge in a multi burial situation. Harness fits well and snug. I've been to many different operations and tried many beacons. For the accuracy, simplicity, and size of the Tracker 2, it's the best choice in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, Fast, Accurate I have practiced beacon searches with most transceivers that are currently on the market and the bottom line is that the Tracker2 is faster and more accurate in comparison. You cannot beat its instantaneous real time display when you are bracketing during your fine search. It has a super fast processor and is really intuitive and easy to use. If you have the opportunity, compare it to other beacons side by side and see for yourself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product This is a very good product. I originally had a Peeps beacon, which I liked and used for a little over a decade. When I left batteries in over the summer, and they leaked, it needed replacing. My wife had a Tracker, and I decided to get this one because it's a little smaller and lighter. Relative to my wife's Tracker (also sold by REI, and costs less), there is only modest improvement. A financially-sensitive person would probably be better off going for their lower-end model; however, I do appreciate having the slimmer profile. This version is also better suited to use while wearing gloves, but in a real life-or-death scenario, whether you take off your gloves to use it isn't a top priority. This version also has a slightly longer range. I really like that it points you in the appropriate direction (my old Peeps only had one directional point, this has 5). This feature makes finding someone much easier and faster--if your friend is suffocating under avalanche debris, they'll be glad you got to them that little bit faster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from extremely simple to use Nice sale price. This beacon couldn't be any easier to use, even if you never used it or ever read the directions, which is how it SHOULD be with such a life-saving device. I own 3 of the original trackers, and tracker2 is by far better as it should be. I wear mine in-bounds after big dumps. (at Kirkwood, it's justified, especially when riding near or out of bounds at all.) When I test my beacon in the lift line, it instantly detects other intelligent signs of life, usually all skiers! They do have respect for other rider and skiers with beacons, probes and shovels, as we are going to be the ones possibly doing the digging! It is nice to see that the 1 deckers and the 2 deckers get along better these days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver This is a Great easy to use Transceiver , made right here in the USA. I have used the Transceiver for many training sessions and it has always been reliable and easy to use. The Tracker has good range and makes finding your friends fast. Don't go in the Backcountry without training, a Partner, Transceiver, shovel and probe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Really Swell Little Device The Tracker 2 is my favorite beacon to date. I've used most and this is so straight forward and easy to use. It's also been super accurate in all of my practice scenarios (thankfully that's all that i've needed it for to date) and I almost never notice it even on the longest days (unless the longest days include a much larger friend with a propensity for sneak tackles)(which they sometimes do)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to operate with gloves on Works well even with gloves on. I haven't had to use it for rescue, but have tested it several times. The search toggle is the wide chevron at the bottom, just pull that out and searching will start. Harness works, remember to have the beacon facing INWARD (screen towards your body). Good range. I would like a 360 degree direction indicator, but most beacons do not have this and it's very easy to search even without it. Remember to get an avalanche safety course.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could this be any easier? Bought this on a recommendation from an avid BC skier. Love it. Simple, cost effective and about as dummy proof as it gets.
