Simple, easy to use, less bulk

I had the Tracker 1 before this and liked it for its ease and simplicity, however the bulk use to be a bit annoying. I have been using the tracker 2 for the past 2 seasons and I love it! They made the functions even more simple and clear so that you don't accidentally leave you beacon in search when you want it in transmit and vise verse.
I instruct avi courses and have used most other beacons out there and hands down have to say this is the quickest beacon in terms of familiarizing yourself with the functions. The triple antenna pics up clear signals regardless of the buried beacon's orientation. The clear indicator lights tend to be simple enough for anyone to follow. The SP mode for multiple burials is quite strait forward as well.
While the Tracker 2 might not have all the bells and whistles that a Peeps or Pulse have, it gets the job done and does it with the quick precision that is so essential when your trying to find you buried buddy.
