The Backcountry Access Tracker DTS can greatly reduce the amount of time spent pinpointing, probing, and digging during an avalanche rescue. Which means you should buy one for your backcountry partner so they can find you as easily as you can find them. Using state-of-the-art analog and digital technology combined with conventional transceiver design, the Tracker DTS (Digital Transceiving System) takes the guesswork out of locating avalanche victims. The Tracker’s unique dual antenna keeps the searcher directly on the path to the buried victim, which eliminates the stop-and-go process of traditional grid searches. The Tracker's "smart" DTS technology not only creates significantly faster rescues, but also makes it simple to operate. As long as the number in the distance indicator is decreasing, simply follow the directional lights to your target. The Tracker also has a unique feature which accounts for the possibility of a secondary slide while searchers are in receive mode.
