You like your chances with a Pro.
It's tough to beat the odds when you spend a significant amount of time in avalanche terrain. There's a whole lot you can do to minimize your chances of being caught, and while an avalanche beacon won't prevent accidents, cautious decision making, regular practice, and familiarity with your beacon will increase your chances of being found or finding a victim before it's too late. The Pieps DSP Pro Beacon is designed for skiers and snowboarders who spend serious time in relatively high-risk areas and need a beacon that's fast, accurate, and easy to use.
The Pro has a simple two-button interface that gives you the only options you need for fast and effective performance (send, search, scan, and flag). Just slide the side switch to toggle between transmitting and receiving and mark burials using the flag button. When you've flagged a signal, the three antennas automatically switch to the nearest unflagged signal for streamlined searching. The Pro has a 60-meter circular search range and a smart transmitter that, during a burial, automatically switches to the antenna with the clearest broadcasting range, minimizing dead spots and signal traps that can drastically reduce a beacon's effectiveness. It also ensures that its signal isn't overlapping with any other transmitting beacons, minimizing misleading signals and indirect search paths.
Designed to keep things simple and efficient, the Pro has a distance readout, a directional arrow, multiple burial indicators, and a battery life display, which provide all the necessary information without cluttering the screen. The Pro is also compatible with the Pieps iProbe to reduce search time even further, and it has a built-in inclinometer to help you accurately assess slope angles. There are also available software updates to keep your beacon up to date, and it will work with older beacons regardless of the software installed.
Please remember that this device is NOT a guarantee that you will survive an avalanche; get educated, learn to use your tools, travel with trusted partners, and be smart out there.
