The BCA Tracker 3 has an efficient and progressive industrial design, making it the most developed of BCA's Tracker range.
The T3’s foundation is still built around the industries' fastest, most precise pinpointing and instantaneous real-time display. However, the Tracker 3 is now 30 per cent smaller and lighter than the Tracker 2
The BCA DTS Tracker 3 is a very good advance in transceiver design. The device weighs only 170 grams and is very small and easy to carry. BCA’s goal was to make the tracker 3, tracker 4 and tracker S the same size as a modern smartphone.
In search mode, it tells you if you have 1, 2 or multiple victims and whether they are in close proximity.
There is a button that you can push that gives you a 'big picture' of the search and allows you to review all signals received in the case of multiple burials, helping the user to direct a search if working with other rescuers.
When you let the button go it locks back on the closest victim. Once you get to the first victim, you can suppress this signal and you will then lock onto the next closest victim.
New features include BCA’s no-nonsense markings for multiple burials and a special Multi-Burial Button that can switch between or suppress any signal in any direction in a multi-burial situation.
The foundation on the BCA DTS Tracker 3 is still built around the original Tracker Technology which provides the industry’s fastest, most precise pinpointing and instantaneous real-time display.
Combine this with Tracker’s reputation for durability and reliability and you have the most functional beacon in the marketplace.
The Avalanche transceiver can make the difference between life and death. When the tracker shows you’re within 3 metres of the victim, put the beacon to the ground and prepare to use the probe and shovel. The BCA Tracker 3 Beacon can be bought within the BCA Tracker 3 Package includes the Terrawest Core Light Shovel & Terrawest Core 240 Probe.
If skiers are caught out by an avalanche, their companions in the vicinity have their work cut out. They have to locate the victims and dig them out as quickly as possible. The chances of survival diminish rapidly after 13 minutes of burial in the snow. Using a transceiver can radically reduce search times, thus increasing the chances of a successful rescue.
