Katie Andersonwrote a review of Pieps Freeride Avalanche Beacon on February 18, 2014
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought the Pieps Freeride a couple years ago. During an AIARE Avy 1 course this weekend, the instructor informed me that the Freeride should not be used to conduct searches because having 1 antenna makes them far less accurate and more difficult to use. The beacon has an arrow on the screen, which becomes larger as you search, but the arrow is not directional - it only communicates signal strength. Super confusing/frustrating (as I've experienced during practice searches) if you think following the arrow will help lead you to your buried buddy. The beacon is still useful for being found, so would work well for a dog or a child that won't be searching. Outdoor Gear Lab has a great review of this beacon, if you'd like more information.
