Here's what other sites are saying:

The Pieps DSP Smart Transmitter updates the groundbreaking triple-antenna digital DSP avalanche beacon for 07 / 08 with a new, more intuitive button configuration, plus the addition of a built in thermometer, compass, and altimeter. Digital technology in the DSP allows for quick, precise pinpointing of the strongest signal among multiple burials, and the triple antenna increases reliable detection range out to 60 meters, with direction indication starting at 50 meters. Once the first buried beacon is found and marked, a simple button press blocks the signal and moves to the next one, reducing the chances of interference and saving valuable minutes. SCAN mode indicates distance to multiple signals from a single location. The DSP for 07 / 08 is also compatible with Pieps' new Smart Probe technology, and can receive software updates for free at your local dealer every year.

Description of Pieps DSP AdvancedConventional analogue units had always been further developed over the years and adapted to the technologies available on the market. Once the available digital components were actually able to cope with technological demands, analogue technology was replaced by DSP technology at SEIDEL. The manufacturer SEIDEL was able to launch the latest product of the PIEPS development team onto the market together with their sales partner STUBAI Mountain Sport in the 2003 season and put their technology lead to the test with the PIEPS DSP.More than 30 years experience and well over 100,000 PIEPS units sold are a guarantee of the safety, reliability and innovation of the PIEPS products.The PIEPS DSP is the first patented 3-antenna-transceiver 2003 worldwide with integrated Mark and Scan function for easiest use for companion rescue.FeaturesOutstanding digital range all around in all directionsFEATURE 2 Direction and distance indication from the start3 Antennas allow exact pinpointingSearch-strip width 50m without turning and swivelling the DSPiPROBE Support DSP can be temporarily deactivated by the iPROBEUnique self check using a fourth antennaFrequency measurement checks the transmitting frequencyMark- and Scan-Function as additional support in multiple burial scenariosUpdate possibility to the latest firmware

The Pieps DSP advanced is enhanced by the latest DSP technology (signal processing with a digital signal) and a triple-antenna system, the PIEPS DSP not only offers an exceptional 60 meter range but also greatly simplifies the rescue procedure, even in the case of multiple burials | As soon as the PIEPS DSP picks up signals, the approximate distance and direction to the strongest signal are displayed on a large LCD plus the number of burials within range is represented on the LCD matchstick men | Another revolutionary first for the PIEPS DSP is the highly useful SCAN feature. Press the SCAN key while in SEARCH mode and the DSP will scan the entire receiving range and return an overview of all buried devices within range classified in three groups, Reading 1: Number of burials within a distance of approx. 5 meters, Reading 2: Number of burials within a distance of approx. 20 meters, Reading 3: Number of burials within a distance of approx. 50 meters | The optimized multiple search, the

Thanks to digital processor technology, the Pieps DSP Avalanche Beacon makes it possible to tell the number of victims buried. Also, the beacon can isolate signals so the user can choose which signal to follow. The resulting time advantage can mean the difference between life and death. SCAN feature shows number of burials within a distance of 5 meters, 20 meters, and 50 meters. Shows approximate distance and direction to the strongest (closest) signal without interference. Upgradeable beacon; when new software comes out, Pieps will upgrade vs. buying a new one. Triple-antenna digital beacon for multiple burials; not analog. Earphone socket. Maximum range: 60 m (66 yards). Transmission frequency: 457 kHz. Power supply: 3 alkaline (AAA) batteries, 1.5V.
