Ortovox Zoom avalanche transceiver the new Zoom + is simple and effective with the latest smart antenna system built in. It is incredibly easy to use, with only two buttons therefore operating errors are almost impossible.
Large LED display easy to use without reading glasses, and has a super soft rubber ring housing to give it extra protection.
The Zoom gives distance via a large LED and direction with arrows much like the Ortovox Patroller Digital and other transceivers from BCA etc. The biggest plus for the Zoom is the smart antenna just like on the 3+ and the S1+ this automatically users the best transmit antenna so you get a full 40m range.
Ortovox quote a 43% increase in range, however this has to be viewed in perspective to other transceivers on transmit and buried at an unfavourable angle. What we know is that this system really does work and helps others find you quicker, even if they are using a standard transceiver.
The Ortovox Zoom at the price point is a sure fire winner in the market place, just what you need for your first transceiver and put together in a simple package of shovel and probe makes this a must have starter kit for your off piste skiing and snowboarding.
Perfect for anyone on a budget, but giving you the peace of mind of the 3 antenna system like much more expensive avalanche transceivers.
