thinking of using these on a touring set-up, any thoughts in terms of skins (tailless or with adapter), and general experience on how well they work as a touring ski?

the main difference between the two is that the M2 has a single antenna while the Tracker has 2, making it faster and easier to use, another huge difference between the two is analog vs digital, meaning it relies upon auditory info rather than a digital interface, digital is also much more specific in terms of search area. thirdly the M2 had recall problems because of battery issues (http://beaconreviews.com/transceivers/OrtovoxRecall.asp) and was discontinued in 2009, there's probably a reason why. If i were buying a beacon now i'd take a look at the newer, smaller, three antenna products, take look at the Oct issue of Powder for a solid cross-section of the current beacons.
