The ZOOM+ avalanche beacon from Ortovox combines the simplest handling with the latest technology and the most advanced design. Reduced to two functional buttons, the ZOOM+ 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 switch over in case of a follow-up avalanche.
The Ortovox ZOOM+ combines a simple display with the latest in avalanche transceiver technology.

For the most valuable backcountry products in one box, look no further than the Ortovox Avalanche Rescue Kit. With the Zoom+ avalanche transceiver, Badger shovel, 240 Economic probe, and Safety Academy Guide Book, you'll have everything you need to enjoy backcountry trips safely.
Streamlined for ease of use, the Ortovox Zoom+ RECCO avalanche transceiver has an intuitive design that quickly guides you to a buried victim, and it includes a RECCO reflector for backup protection. Zoom+ has only two buttons, one to turn it on and one to switch between transmit and search modes; clean design limits confusion that can occur during a search. Zoom+ has the ability to analyze its vertical orientation when buried and transmit its signal on the transmitting antenna best positioned for searchers to pick up a signal. Most transceivers can only transmit on one antenna; by being able to transmit on two antennas, the Zoom+ has a consistent 40m range no matter what position it is buried in. The third antenna in the Zoom+ allows excellent precision and pinpoint search capabilities when you're zeroing in on a buried victim. Use the large button on top of the transceiver to quickly switch between transmit and search modes. Large display with LEDs shows the distance to the victim, the direction you need to travel and whether or not there are multiple victims. Visual search is supplemented with audio-higher and faster sounds tell you that you are getting closer to the buried transceiver. If the transceiver registers no movement for more than 2 min. while searching, it automatically switches back to transmit mode in case a second avalanche has struck. Internal RECCO reflector brings peace of mind by offering a backup means for finding a buried victim; more than 700 ski areas and rescue teams around the world use RECCO. RECCO reflector enhances radio signals from search-and-rescue RECCO detectors, helping speed up the search for a buried avalanche victim. Compatible with all standardized avalanche beacons operating on the 457 kHz frequency. Includes a comfortable carrying bag and an elastic strap. One alkaline AA battery provides approximately 250 hrs. of transmit time.
