The Ortovox Zoom+ avalanche transceiver helps you locate multiple burial victims and tells their distance and location. The Ortovox Zoom+ combines the simplest handling with the latest technology and the most advanced design. Reduced to two functional buttons, this Ortovox beacon concentrates on intuitive usability. The focus on the clearly designed LED-display is on the on / off switches and the switch between transmitting and searching. Distances, directional arrows and information about several avalanche victims guide you in the fastest way to the refined search area, with the intuitive search acoustics making victims easier to locate. Equipped with the patented SMART-ANTENNA-TECHNOLOGY, avalanche victims are found much better with the ZOOM+. The device analyzes its position in the avalanche and automatically switches to the best transimission antenna. The latest digital 3-antenna technology is taken for granted at ORTOVOX just as much as the automatic switchover in case of a follow-up avalanche. Intuitive design: Ortovox designed the ZOOM+ for ease of use. Just two buttons make operating errors practically impossible. Once switched on, it is possible to switch between transmission and search mode using the safety switchover button. Subsequent search instructions are given on the large LED-display. An all-round soft rubber ring guarantees easy handling and additional protection. They secured the ZOOM from being lost with an elastic hand strap and a comfortable bag. Visual + acoustic search: The ZOOM+ focuses the person searching on the large display in the middle of the device. LEDs are used to show the distance to the victim, the direction using arrows and if there is more than one victim. Large LEDs are easy to read especially in poor visibility conditions and at night. The visual search mode is supported by intuitive search ac oustics. Higher and fast sounds tell you that you are approaching the avalanche victim. Smart-Antenna Technology: The integrated smart-antenna-technology analyzes the position of the antennas in the avalanche and automatically switches to the best transmission antenna. The result: Almost double the range in the worst coupling position, regardless of the beacon used for searching. The patented Smart Antenna Technology is compatible with all avalanche transceivers, in other words regardless of which device the person searching is using. Switch over in case of a follow-up avalanche: The ZOOM+ is equipped with the latest, digital 3 antenna technology and with a motion sensor. This is required for switching over in case of a follow-up avalanche. If the transmitter registers no movement for more than 120 seconds while searching, it automatically switches back to transmission mode. Rescuers are thereby protected from follow-up avalanches at all times. Technology: The ZOOM's complete electronics are checked when it is turned on (self test) and constantly monitored while in use. In case of a burial, once search mode has been activated, rescuers get an initial signal at 40 meters and are able to make use of a search strip width of the same size. Without having to compromise on transmission time, the ZOOM+ saves on the environment and your wallet! One AA battery is sufficient for 250 hours in transmission mode. Recco Reflector Inside.

Escape the holiday crowds and breathe in some fresh backcountry air when you utilize the Ortovox Zoom+ Avalanche Rescue Package. Its included Zoom+ transceiver, 240 Economic Probe, Badger shovel, and Safety Academy guide book help ensure you have the proper safety tools in case of an avalanche. Along with this kit, we highly recommended that you take avalanche courses and train with your touring partners so you understand the dangers of the backcountry and know how to properly respond in a stressful avalanche situation. The included user-friendly, triple-antenna Zoom+ transceiver features Ortovox's patented Smart Antenna Technology which analyzes its position in an avalanche and automatically switches to the best transmission antenna. As a result, it almost doubles the range when you're in the worst coupling position, regardless of the beacon your partners are using to search for you. The Zoom+ also has a slimmed down design for ease of use. With only two buttons, faulty operation is virtually impossible. Once switched on, the user can switch between sending and searching modes using the safety switch. Further instructions are then displayed on the large LED screen which is easy to read even in poor visibility and at night. Distances, directional arrows, and information about several avalanche victims guide you in the fastest way to the refined search area, with the intuitive search acoustics making victims easier to locate. This sweet package also includes a lightweight aluminum Badger shovel with an ergonomic, hybrid grip for maximum power transmission. Designed with a sizable blade volume of 2. 5 liters, the Badger has a center ridge and high side walls for full rigidity while you dig out your victim or dig a pit. Non-slip grooves on the top edge of the blade provide adequate traction on your boots while a centering aid in the shaft socket facilitates rapid assembly. An included 240 Economic Probe helps you locate the avalanche victim beneath the snow onc...
