What's the difference between the Ortovox...
What's the difference between the Ortovox S1 Avalanche Scanner/Transceiver and the Ortovox S1+ Beacon? Thanks.
The S1+ incorporates the new auto-orienting transmitter that changes the transmitting antenna based on your position under the snow. It also looks much cooler.
Any difference between this one and orange one?
What's the difference between this one and http://www.backcountry.com/ortovox-s1-avalanche-scanner-transceiver?
i wanted to know why the warranty is only...
i wanted to know why the warranty is only for 60 days
I'm guessing it is a typo on Backcountry's part. Ortovox provides a 5 year warranty from the date of purchase or 6 years from the date of manufacture (whichever comes first).
Can you tell us what is the production...
Can you tell us what is the production date or what version of software has it?
doesn't matter, I found that can be updated for free by sending it to an Ortovox store...
The most user friendly beacon out there
Of all things in your backcountry kit, your beacon is the last thing you want to have any questions about. After getting familiar with the S1, you wont have any doubts about how easy it is to use. The display system is far more straightforward and two-dimensional than competitors, and the multi-search function easily allows you to hone in on different burials. The one drawback might be that it doesn't automatically turn on when you clip the waist strap, like old Ortovox beacons. Therefore, it's possible to put it on and forget to turn it on. But everybody always does beacon checks before heading out so this shouldn't be a problem!
Will this beacon come with the latest...
Will this beacon come with the latest firmware version 2.1 (aka 1.2.3074) already installed? (Assuming 1.2.3074 is the latest update anyway.)
It comes with the latest firmware available at the time of production. With the rate of advance in these though, I'd say you're likely to need an update prior to use.
Reliable,fast and fits in the palm of your hand. Has a great range too and some really useful functions,like switching between modes in the event of secondary avalanches. Worth the money of the price tag.
Really fast, great range. Not quite as good midrange as the Pieps but better close range and with multiples. I found and dug out both practice beacons before my partner found either of them. Great extra features too!
I bought this beacon due to the range and multi search functions. Does well on battery life. There are alot of gadgets with in the system that I never use, but could be useful one day. Strap system is ok but could be better as in it slips and you have to re adjust from time to time. Whats really nice is the option to change change time you beacon is searching. So if you were searching then got buried yourself, it reverts back to send signal after it stops moving for the preset time or your set time. Multi search function is very cool. I find you really follow the flux lines in on a search where others bring you in on a straighter line. This is not a negative, its just something you may notice when searching for the first time.
So Simple, yet reliable
Extremely easy to use. It doesn't just go off of dots and beeps. The screen actually shows you the direction of the beacons buried beneath the snow. I haven't had a true avalanche experience with this beacon but neither do I want to have to use it. I practice using it every year and even during the summer. By far out of everyone I know, they love the ease of use this beacon offers. And the easier to use, the faster you can do your job.
