The Tracker 2 is a more modern take on simplicity, pairing today's GPS technology with the usability of your traditional beacon; perfect for the everyday adventurer! Lastly, the Tracker 3. Designed for more complex rescue operations, the Tracker 3, is the beacon for avalanche experts, not your day to day rescue beacon. Loaded with features both complex and simple, the Tracker 3 is the most powerful beacon on the market.
