Mammut Pulse Barryvox Avalanche Beacon Review by Brett S.
5 out of 5 stars
I had a Tracker DTS but decided to upgrade when I started getting more serious about my backcountry pursuits and avalanche training. Although the Tracker is a good beacon it just doesn’t compare to the features found on the Pulse Barryvox. For multiple burials it is incredible and although the stats aren’t good for multiple burials I feel a hell of a lot more confident that I could find my buds a lot faster if it were to ever happen.

P.S. BCA is one of the best companies in the industry because they sponsor classes and beacon practice parks for everyone to use. You dollar is your vote, so vote for a company that does something to address the risk associated with selling avalanche gear to the mountain-going masses. Buy BCA and take a class. It just makes sense.

It comes with 1:100k ratio map. With this map, you cannot do any routing. With the 1:24k maps which you have to buy from Garmin and only cover regions versus all of US, you can do routing with. Road maps can used if you decide to get those as well. You can load custom maps using Basecamp software. Overall a pretty versatile and flexible GPS.

Great beacon, has everything you want/need without being overly complicated. It’s great for beginners while in basic mode, yet also has an advanced mode for guides and pros. The user-interface is simple, only two buttons. The build quality seems to be good, I spent a lot of time playing with it over this past season, and it’s held up very well. Also, the battery life is pretty good considering the performance that you’re getting out of it.

More Info – Mammut Pulse Barryvox Avalanche Beacon Review
For all burials, the Pulse uses a 360-degree direction arrow that leads you along the shortest path to the victim and eliminates the need for a final grid search.

A triple antenna eliminates all signals except the one you’re following and marks victims once they’re located.

Beacon shows you which signals are being searched for by other Pulse users, so your search is more efficient.

If you’re the one buried, this Mammut beacon has a motion sensor that detects vital signs and lets other Pulse users know you’re still alive.
