The Ortovox S1 Avalanche Transceiver is the world’s first sensor-controlled avalanche scanner, and enables rescue situations to be solved in the shortest possible time. Because time is the all-important factor, your need the Ortovox S1. For example, your friend Jimmy has a 92 percent chance of survival after being buried in an avalanche for 15 minutes and a 30 percent chance after 35 minutes. Whereas most transceivers use confusing audio-based directional cues, the S1's electromagnetic sensors map victims' positions and depths on an LCD screen. The S1 gives signatures for up to four people which is very important for multiple burials and also features an illuminated display, an electronic compass, a temperature display and even a slope-measuring device, which when determining the slope gradient is one of the most important criteria for assessing avalanche risk. Buy the Ortovox S1 for a price of $500 just in case the mountain wants revenge. Ortovox.
