Ortovox 3Plus 5 5 1 1
an absolute must if you are contemplating going off piste This has to be one of the best transceivers on the market at the moment, it is easy to use and very intuitive. It has the added bonus of Recco fitted so hopefully if you find yourself buried you will be quickly recovered. In search mode it gives good directional arrows and the audio bleeping when you get close to the buried transceiver is very easy to follow. I would say that it is vital that you know how to use a transceiver before you hit the fresh snow. If you were buried you would want your buddies to know how to use theirs so make sure you return the favour and know how to use yours!!! I have been on a HAT (Henry's Avalanch Talks) transceiver traing day and it is the best £50 I have spent as i can now use my transceiver with confidence 25 November 2013

This user friendly 3+ digital transceiver from Ortovox incorporates Smart Antenna technology utilizing intelligent mobile position recognition technology. This analyses the position of the 3+'s three antennas and automatically identifies the optimal transmission antenna. The circular precise real time display screen clearly indicates the position and distance to the buried victim (also the battery capacity and consumption) with directional arrows enabling you proceed in the right direction. The precision and accuracy of this device efficiently reduces labour time enabling maximum efficiency to locate the buried victim. There is also a large safety switch-back to transmit mode button in case of a follow-up avalanche scenario. The 3+ is also ideal for multiple burials with an overview and number of victims displayed. After retrieving a victim, there is an option to blend out their signal with the pin key (the 3+ then shows that victim as pinned) allowing you to move on to rescue the remaining people. Durable ergonomic rubberized housing safely protects the transceiver from the elements, while the light display and optimized acoustics make searching at night easier. If skiers are caught out by an avalanche, their companions in the vicinity have their work cut out. They have to locate the victims and dig them out as quickly as possible. The chances of survival diminish rapidly after 18 minutes of burial in the snow. Avalanche transceivers are essential items of equipment for anyone going off piste. The Avalanche transceiver can make the difference between life and death. When the tracker shows you’re within 3 metres of the victim, put the beacon to the ground and prepare to use the probe and shovel.
