Remember when you had to bring your beacon into an authorized dealership and sometimes wait for weeks to have it updated to the latest software? It was inconvenient and kept many from getting necessary software updates. That's no longer an issue with the new Black Diamond Bluetooth Guide beacon. This Bluetooth-enabled beacon can wirelessly sync with a mobile app to customize its settings and keep it updated with the latest software. Beyond the revolutionary Bluetooth beacon technology, this Guide beacon has the advanced functionality required by professional guides leading large teams in avalanche-prone terrain. The Guide beacon's state-of-the-art antennas offer an incredible 60-meter circular search range and intelligent signal processing that differentiates between multiple beacon signals and drifted signals. This beacon is also compatible with older analog beacons by way of its continuous search mode. We hope that you'll never have to really use this beacon, but you still have to carry it, so we include a free harness-style beacon pouch that keeps your Black Diamond Guide Bluetooth beacon comfortably secured to your body.
