I upgraded my old Ortovox F1 avalanche Beacon with the Mammut Pulse Barryvox and wow am I faster! While it takes longer for this digital beacon to pick up the signal initially, with arrows pointing the way to the closest beacon first, you rapidly get to the fine search phase, where a digital distance readout again cuts down on time. Where these new digital beacons really shine are in multiple burial situations. The beacon will show you how many signals it is picking up, and filter out others signals, bringing you directly to the closest one first. You can override which beacon it brings you to, and mark a beacon to move on to the next. The Pulse beacons are also capable of sensing very small movements, such as whether a buried victim is breathing or has a beating heart. This information is transmitted so someone searching with a Pulse can see that the victim's heart is still beating.

beacon works great but dont leave the batteries in the thing over the summer. it corroded, i sent it in and they charged me $80 to put in a 75 cent part.
those guys suck and rip their customers off...405-450 dollar beacon to start with should be free to repair it

This thing is easy to use. Forget about all the extra fancy buttons that can confuse you when time is running out. Luckily I haven't had the chance to really use it outside a test environment but this beacon I know I can trust. Simple and effective is what best describes this beacon.
