The NEO+ transceiver is the ideal tool for mountain professionals and the everyday backcountry enthusiast, with its wide search bandwidth and enhanced functionalities.
In its ongoing quest towards higher performance, the NEO has now evolved into the NEO+. With the NEO+, a new era begins for efficient and effective searches. Through innovative hardware design and software optimization, this new transceiver is capable of pushing the search strip width to 70 meters. The new version is also equipped with a movement sensor to automatically switch back to transmit mode as well as a new holster that allows you to carry your transceiver in search mode. The holster keeps your transceiver incredibly stable when worn and is specifically designed to protect the search button on your device for a higher level of safety when in transmit mode.
70m search bandwidth
Bandwith corresponds to the size the area «scanned» by the searching device. The device’s search area increases as bandwidth increases. This criterion is often used to compare beacon performance.
Auto switch back to transmission
During a search, in the event of a secondary avalanche, the return to transmit function allows the device to automatically switch back to transmit mode. This switch is activated either by timer after a certain period of time of user inactivity, or by motion detector after a certain amount of time where the device has not moved. Configure these timeframes in your beacon’s settings menu.
Interference management maximizes the device’s performance in search mode in an environment «overrun» by electromagnetic interference. To accomplish this, the device in search mode automatically reduces the bandwidth and ignores all other frequencies to focus solely on the beacon being tracked. This function can be deactivated by the user.
