The Board Club says…

Transceiver technology and usability have come on massively in the past five years and Ortovox has been at the forefront of many of those developments. The unique selling point of the Zoom+ is its ease of use. This is a serious piece of kit, which packs the latest Ortovox technology, but its usability makes it the perfect choice for any rider who regularly finds themselves tempted off the side of the piste. We think everyone should have a transceiver, regardless of how serious a backcountry rider you think you are. Buy a Zoom+ and wear it whenever you ride. You won’t regret it.

Intuitive design - Ortovox designed the Zoom+ for ease of use. Just two buttons make operating errors almost impossible. Once switched on, it is possible to switch between transmission and search mode using the safety switchover button. Subsequent search instructions are given on the large LED display. An all-round soft rubber ring guarantees easy handling and additional protection. Ortovox have also secured the Zoom+ from being lost with an elastic hand strap and a comfortable bag.

Visual + Acoustic search - The Zoom+ focuses the person searching on the large display in the middle of the device. LEDs are used to show the distance to the victim. Large LEDs are easy to read, especially in poor visibility conditions and at night. The visual search mode is supported by intuitive search acoustics. Higher and faster sounds tell you that you are approaching the avalanche victim.

Smart Antenna Technology - Be found easier! The Ortovox integrated ‘Smart-Antenna-Technology’ analyses the position of the antennas in the avalanche and automatically switches to the best transmission antenna. The result is almost double the range in the worst reception area. The patented ‘Smart-Antenna-Technology’ is compatible with all avalanche transceivers, in other words, regardless of which device the person searching is using. Switchover in case of a follow-up avalanche - The Zoom+ is equipped with the latest , digital 3-antenna technology and with a motion sensor. This is required for switching over in case of a follow-up avalanche. If the transmitter registers no movement for more than 120 seconds while searching, it automatically switches back to transmission mode. Rescuers are thereby protected from follow-up avalanches at all times.

Technology - The electronics in the Zoom+ are checked when it is turned on (Self Test) and constantly monitored while in use. In case of a burial, once search mode has been activated, rescuers get an initial signal at 40 meters and are able to make use of a search strip width of the same size. Without having to compromise on transmission time, the Zoom+ saves on the environment and your wallet. One AA battery is sufficient for 250 hours in transmission mode.

Recco reflector - The Zoom+ comes with a Recco Reflector inside. This back-up technology allows professional rescuers to quickly find avalanche victims. It is used by more than 700 ski areas and rescue teams around the world.
