These transceivers have three antennas to resolve "spikes" and have the ability to "mark" (i.e., suppress) a signal during a multiple burial search. In terms of prices and features, these beacons are targeted toward the mid-range market.
The ARVA Evo3+ and Tracker3 can "suppress" only one signal at a time (and the Tracker3 suppresses it for only 60 seconds). The ARVA Neo+, Mammut Barryvox, Ortovox 3+, and Pieps DSP Sport have very similar features, including the ability to suppress more than one signal. These transceivers differ in how well they perform the core functions and in variations in their reception ranges, displays, controls, harnesses, prices, etc.
Pros: Small and light. Excellent perpendicular reception range
Cons: A proximity sensor that potentially creates more problems than it solves.
Pros: Great range, simple controls, easy updates, excellent perpendicular reception range.
Cons: Nothing significant.
Cons: Two-digit display, not mitten friendly, shorter perpendicular reception range, can mark only one transmitter.
These avalanche transceivers have three antennas and support the marking of transmitters during a multiple burial, but they also have one or more additional features. The value of these additional features depends on your needs.
Pros: Great range, direction indicator, and audio. Toggles to analog, small, excellent perpendicular reception range.
Cons: Moderate learning curve for enhanced features.
Pros: Great range, simple controls, easy updates, toggles to analog, excellent perpendicular reception range.
Cons: Analog mode suffers from static and lacks digital processing.
These transceivers have three antennas which enables them to resolve "spikes," yet they lack the ability to "mark" (i.e., suppress) a signal during a multiple burial search. Some people consider the ability to mark a multiple burial relatively unimportant, because multiple burials are less-common and using the marking feature does require practice. If you don't want the "marking" feature, these transceivers are worth considering.
Pros: Simple, "orientation-based transmitter."
Cons: No marking, short range, two-digit display, non-upgradeable.
