Black Diamond Guide BT Avalanche Beacon is rated out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Erik from High end beacon for advanced back-country As a backcountry patroller and member of SAR, I look for a beacon that I can use on a daily basis as well for if a bad day occurs and I'm looking for multiple burials of public. This beacon is a nice step up from another Pro model I have been using. But before using this beacon, DO download and read/learn the manual. With so many features, you should be comfortable with them before you need them. With that said, it is designed so you can use this beacon right out of the box. The manual is needed to dig deeper in to the features that make this an advanced level beacon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by keith2019 from Best transceiver I have worked with yet Any doubts I had transitioning from the Pieps to BD transceivers are totally gone. (they are the same, I am just skeptical of new things) This is an awesome transceiver. The new sliding switch between stop and send is a much needed improvement on the older Pieps lock button. I am a Ski Patroller and have done many personal drills and side-by-side tests comparing the BD Guide vs other respected transceivers brands that are issued to our Patrol (cannot mention the brands). From my experience the BD guide out performs it's competition in all areas. The faster processing speed makes it easier and faster to follow the signal from first signal, all the way to the fine grid search. I always time myself and can say I am consistently faster with the BD Guide. I have also experienced ZERO ghost signals present in other transceivers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous from Mixed Feelings If I could give this three and a half stars I would. It's processor is incredibly slow and takes a while to get used to. I have had a couple instances with ghosting but only two or three with the 6 days I've practiced with it. Sliding the device on and from send to search mode is always difficult but that's good (I sometimes have a hard time doing it with gloves). Overall, I hope Pieps releases an update so that the processor is faster but it is a pieps beacon so the processor is obviously slow compared to other manufacturers.
