Ok how well does this work I have read a lot of the reviews and I have heard that this isn't that good what is everyone's opinion? Would this be good for finding someone really fast?

You are better off buying a BCA Tracker. It is very easy to use especially if you have little experience with beacons. The Freeride will work, but it is not the easiest beacon to use. Hence the only $199 price tag. The beacons that start at 299 tend to be easier to use and more feature ruch

I like mine. The range is ok, and it could have more features. But the best part of this unit is its size. Its about 2/3 the size of most, so it is light and easy to carry, this means you will have no excuse not to carry it everywhere every day.

This thing was so easy to use and straight forward it was ridiculous.

Not the most intuitive for finding someone fast. Takes a lot of practice. A multi-antenna unit is definitely the foolproof way to go.
