Description

The Tracker 2 is the new standard in simple, reliable beacons from Backcountry Access.

The Backcountry Access Tracker 2 subtracts weight and size, and adds real-time display and a third receiving antenna to the best-selling, dead-simple Tracker DTS. The third digital antenna increases accuracy and provides a strong buried signal in any orientation, while the real-time display eliminates lag time, allowing you to narrow your search zone quickly when seconds count. The Tracker 2's single search / transmit switch makes learning and teaching a snap, and it reduces confusion when you hit adrenaline overdrive.

Great Beacon!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a great product that is very solid. I am pleased with the easy of use. It works really well in search mode. It will defiantly help you find your buddy in an emergency. The harness that is included works well as well. Great product and one that I hope to never use.

Excellent product

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My first beacon and I am very, very pleased. It does its job and ensures I will be found quickly in the event of a rescue.

Great auto search mode and "special mode" for multi burial searchs.

Compact enough and light weight. Great strap system on the harness that ensures it wont swing around or be uncomfortable while riding.

Great Beacon

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is my first beacon and its super easy to use. I really like it. Hopefully I NEVER actually have to use it in search mode. But during drills it worked great and the signal was able to keep up with me while I was running.

My next beacon

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I don't own this yet but I'm about to. It's fairly simple to operate and coming from the tracker 1 it's an easy transition. I have many friends with this current beacon and the only flaw seems to be the ease of putting it back into transmit by mistake. Something to pay attention to when stashing it during a search.

Initial impressions

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The past few weeks I have been getting to know this beacon. I went from the Tracker 1 to this out of familiarity and ease of use. I was super comfortable with the Tracker 1 and figured I would stick to what I know. A couple of things that I love about this beacon is that it is so easy to use. Great to teach people with and really basic and straight forward. A major improvement with this beacon from the Tracker 1 is that when you get within 2 meters the lit up arrows disappear allowing you to only focus on the numbers for your pin point grid search. This is great for beginners as they won't pay attention to the lit up arrows at this point and they will only focus on the numbers. This is also a great cue for them to drop to their knees and start pin pointing.

One thing that I noticed right away was the search to transmit pull tab system. This is my only major gripe so far with this beacon. After you have found your lowest point in your grid search and you stow your beacon to probe/shovel it is incredibly easy to push the search tab back into transmit. Important to note this! Even though I am acutely aware that this is an issue, it happened to me last weak in a singe burial scenario. I quickly noticed and switched it back to search mode, but realized that even though you are aware of this feature, it can still happen very easily! Wouldn't want to throw of an entire search unknowingly going back into transmit.

Have not yet worked in a multiple burial scenario, but excited to do so ASAP!

mediocre

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So this beacon works, let me start by saying that. It transmits a reliable signal, and its search mode is standard numbers and arrows that lead you to the victim.

here are its flaws. the switch to turn the unit on and off is very hard to turn. it could be fixed with some lube, but as of now, mine is actually painful on the fingers to spin the flat plastic knob. Everyone else I know with the beacon has the same issue. Secondly, the beacon DOES NOT DO MULTIPLE BURIALS. It has a button on the unit that says SP. It seems like the button is intended for multiple burials but it is not. It is for Special function, and it narrows the search signal, I haven't learned how to use it but I have heard it is difficult and not worth learning. I recently took a class and we practiced multiple burials and people with the mammut beacon that can cancel a beacon out once it finds it, had a much easier time than those of us with this beacon. Lastly, the beacon can be easily jarred out of search mode back into transmit mode. this could be good if you got hit by a second avalanche while in search mode looking for someone, but for the most part it seems to be an issue. if your party is looking for a buried person, everyone must be in search mode or off so that the only signal being picked up is that of the buried person. when you keep accidentally jarring your device back into transmit mode it confuses the rescue operations, slows them down, and seconds are precious in such a scenario. my advice, spend more dough and get the mammut, I wish I did.

Owned this tracker for over 2 seasons now and�i love it simple, easy to use and accurate. What more can you ask for. Recently got my bro to buy this one also. very happy with it also.

I have the same question as a previous post - is the inventory you are selling post-2011?

Hi-
All of our current inventory was received THIS year. What you receive will be the 2013 model. Please let us know if we can assist you with anything else!

Shipping to Japan, how much is the fee of all?

Responded on

Hi Masaru,
International shipping is generally around $50, and then the customs fees and taxes are extra. Those fees/taxes vary by country, so I don't have the specific prices for those.

Perhaps an old topic but, can you verify that all of your inventory in stock has been supplied no early than December 2011? Inventory prior to that date will have faulty software that I am not interested in dealing with. BCA says Trackers shipped since December 2011 have the updated 'r04' software. Thanks.

Responded on

Hey, great choice on a beacon btw. All of these beacons were received between Sept and Oct of this year so no worries on faulty software. Let us know if you need anything else.

This beacon rocks!

Keep it simple stupid! BCA is great at not complicating their products. I love how you physically pull the tab to switch to search mode. Hope I never need to use it to locate a buried ski partner but if I do, I know the beacon will be up to the task and the simplicity will help keep my head straight during such an event.

Good gear

I haven't had to REALLY use it. but as far as playing around with it, it seems to find other beacons just find. What I really like is the simplicity: pull the bottom tab out to search, push in to transmit. it is basically impossible to switch out of transmit by accident. it has a good harness too that doesn't feel uncomfortable.

Great Beacon

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This beacon is awesome and met all expectations. Its super easy to use and has large controls that don't require fine motor function, which I think is a major plus. Also its comfy to wear.

Nice but you should wear it inside your jacket so it doesn't get torn off

dood thats prolly her mid layer and she prolly wears a shell over that while she shreds. the harness prevents it from getting ripped off, and its actually better to have it over your mid so you can get to it quicker.

A beacon for all

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

In the ever-evolving world of beacons and avalanche rescue gear, new stuff seems to arrive every year. I still feel most comfortable using the older tracker, but when going out with those a bit less experienced and with less avalanche experience, I always bring the tracker 2. Its simple design, pull tab, and pretty accurate distance indicator make checks, practice and education easy. No fumbling with too many buttons or memorizing too many tricks. Only beef is that the search on/off tab is a bit too easy to push back into transmit mode, making shoving the beacon into the pants or pockets a slightly more time consuming job when switching from search to shovel.

Simple

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If and when stuff hits the fan you want something that is very simple reliable and easy to use. Since stress will be high and thinking might not be easy. This beacon is super friendly and quick in searches.

In the case of this photo we triggered the avalanche from above and were safe but just imagine.....
